Happy First Day of Summer! It sure is a hot one here! Thank goodness for air conditioning! But when I was growing up, there was no air conditioning. All of this got me thinking about things that made summer so grand when I was growing up. What are some of your special summer memories when you were growing up?
That feeling of exhilaration on the last day of school
Sleeping Under the Stars
Neighborhood Baseball Games
Riding bikes every afternoon to the local swimming hole
Spending 2 weeks with my grandmother on the lake
Staying up late
BLT Sandwiches with Homegrown Tomatoes
Working on the farm
Picking sweet corn right out in the field
Playing Kick the Can after dark
Going on a picnic to the amusement park
The Roller Skating Rink
Stargazing and watching for satellites on the hood of my dads truck
Steel skates with a skate key
Finally, here's the song that inspired this blog. . . How many of you remember this one? Turn on your speakers and have fun!
Thanks for dropping by, and make it a memorable summer!
