Temperatures in St. Louis have been peaking in the 90's. Elsewhere, they have been in the 3-digit range. Time to seek one of life's simple pleasures: a giant shade tree. It's summertime, folks. Time to be lazy. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, relaxing under the boughs of a big shady tree.
Wouldn't this be nice, on a long hot day?
Now let's talk about some different kinds of shades.

My collection of shades. To hide me from the paparazzi. Truth is, they hide the crow's feet. Real truth is, I don't wear 'em, cause as soon as I walk out the door with 'em, they're as good as lost.
Shade pick of the day. Found them on ebay, sending for a pair today.
LET THE RANTING BEGIN!
Started with "Made in the Shade." Switching to "Why Were These Shades Made?"
WHY do these horrible tacky lampshades seek me out? I have bad-shade radar (shade-dar? A new Davidism?).

I thought hookers just used streetlights anyway. With these they could have their own stylish corner. (PS- available in my shop.)
Once again we're talking about a shady profession. I'm all about "The Right Amount of Shitty" but this is "A Fuckin' Pity."

You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather's fine
You got women, you got women on your mind"
