As the real dog days of summer set in, I have to share this truly unusual retro nap with you. My reader Anita sent it in. It is a picture of her sleeping on a grain drill (which is, apparently, only about 4 inches wide) in 1959.
She has no explanation for how she was able to balance, while sleeping, on a four inch surface. All I can say is, I think she missed her calling as an olympic gymnast…if not an olympic napper!
As the cicadas sing you their weird little song and the silence of August presses down upon your evenings, may you find a place to nap al fresco.
Napping: it’s as old as the hills and still a good idea!
