During the Summer months, we have described our June, July and August weather as sticky, stinky, peppery, muggy, stuffy, and collar-pulling  I have used the word "Tabascoey" as another adjective for our summertime weather. Years ago I received a call from a gentleman questioning permission to use "Tabascoey" in my weather forecasts and this column. After numerous barbs, jokes and kidding, he identified himself as the late Paul McIlhenney from the McIlhenny family of New Iberia and Avery Island and of course our famous Tabasco sauce. We clicking away at 32 days remain until we exit Summer and head to Autumn.  During our remaining summertime evenings, my wife Mabyn won't walk "Doggie" because...,"It's too gross."
