Summer's Here

Summer Sunshine

Summer creeps in under cover of darkness at 11:24 p.m. Central Daylight Time, June 20, 2017.

It seems ironic the solstice bringing in our longest day starts with a long stretch of black.

Summer is...
...a melting ice cream cone.
...needing to shower after your shower.
...hot
...dang hot.
...a season which arrives too late
and leaves too early.

A favorite summer memory is from a bike ride in 1980 on the Elroy-Sparta trail.  It was a warm day when I noticed a soda machine behind a house just off the path.  It was an older machine with glass bottles of Pepsi inside.  I paid for the bottle, popped off the cap, and enjoyed it, shoes off and toes in a tiny stream .

Summer memories happen when you least expect it.  While the memory may occur on your epic vacation, it's as likely to sneak up while sipping lemonade under the shade of a backyard tree.

Enjoy your summer!
