Hot in Labor

“I’ve traveled all around the world
And there are places that still stand out to me
But none can really quite compare
To my Isle of Palms by the sea

beach picnic

My personal Utopia
A place to run to where I can hide away
Where I can truly reign supreme
Somewhere Hot yet clean and where a man can dream”

I’m king…

And true to form the week before this  for your Majesty had to get fitted for a brand new crown!

Exciting, huh?

Every King of Someplace Hot should have a shiny new crown for his adoring subjects, right?

So the Tuesday before Labor Day I had a Hot date for my royal fitting. I was escorted back to the royal ‘Crown Fitting Chambers’, told to put my feet up, as I awaited my fitting and crafting of my brand new crown.

It was so majestic!

dentist 2 Ah, but it wasn’t all fun and games. My new crown required intricate craftsmanship! But it was guaranteed to enhance the smile on my face!

I hate getting old...

I hate getting old…

Later that Labor Day weekend, I had news that my alma mater was going to play my other alma mater in a college football game on Saturday. Yes, Coastal Carolina (my 4 year school) was going to take on the Citadel (6 year school). The Coastal alumni courted their king’s presence more than the local Citadel alumni so I attended a fun little pep rally under their tent, complete with food, beverages, and FREEBIES!



It was my first college football game in some time, and the first ever for our girls. The Citadel starts off every home football game with a parade it turns out. When all the enrolled Cadets enter the stadium of this military type university, they all must fall in line and enter as a unit, complete with a bag pipe procession to announce their entry. It was kinda impressive on this Hot Labor Day Saturday night!

Yes, I have been King of Somewhere Hot again. And it has been Hot here this past week. The thought of September always brought thoughts of moderate temperatures but not this year.

So Labor Day we loaded up the car one more time and headed out to the beach. It was lots of fun again. The ocean temp was VERY nice after the Hot weekend. it felt very tropical and refreshing. But I didn’t get to spend much time there as I had a job working with my loyal subjects building sand castles!


And, like any great scenic resource, the sea always brings new and extremely curious and interesting discoveries each time we visit. Last weekend we discovered they really do exist! They are not mere folklore but actual, living sea creatures.

I am talking about those ever elusive




We had a great time at the beach Labor Day and you couldn’t help but break out the Pineapple Song and do a little tropical jig there on the beach

 I love it when it’s Hot! It’s so much fun….

“…..Someday I hope to find my queen

I know she’ll come my way
I’ll give her all my love
It’s not a complicated thing someplace I can swing
And she treats me like a King

I’m King
King of Somewhere Hot”

PS: it is due to be a bit cooler this weekend.

In fact, the kids say it might just get Frozen outside!

"you like it.....Hot?"

“you like it…..Hot?”

  1. One of the first things I read when starting a blog many years ago was create a title that grabs their attention. And it worked again it look like although I will never be Fresh pressed for my titles. How did you miss my post about ‘getting tongue’ed’? https://ourlifein3d.com/?s=tongue. I hope you are having a nice weekend SSM! always great to hear from you….

  2. Well whats stopping you Di? We have oddles of philanthropic opportunities down here too. And, oh by the way, we live on the edge of the continent! Come and see us!

  3. I love it hot! We had an early snow and because our trees are still full with green leaves, the weight of the snow broke off boughs from thousands of trees in our city. Andy I need to move to where you live! 😀

  4. After four BIG baby boys, I thought the title meant something else altogether. I was relieved to read about such a relaxing and refreshing September (other than the royal crowning ceremony), complete with real mermaids – beautiful! Thanks for Serving up a lovely treat, Mr. 3D.

I would love to hear from you...
