Well, it is technically spring at this point in time, but summer feels like it is here, and legitimate calendar summer is just right around the corner.
Even though summer brings mosquitoes and very high thermostat readings, there is just nothing quite the same as summer.
As adults, we no longer get a summer vacation that lasts for months, like we did when we were kids in school. Even so, there is still something very special about summertime. Summertime to me means snow cones. Snow cones are like little air conditioners for your tongue and teeth and throat. when you swallow that delicious sweetened ice, it’s as if you purchased a tiny little air conditioner and ate it. it’s not just snow cones that means summer time, though. Some also mean taking trips to the beach. When I grew up even farther south than where I live now, I was extremely close to a beach. back in those days, too, kids could have a Freer lifestyle than they can now, and it was not at all uncommon for me to walk myself to the beach for the day. when it got too overwhelmingly hot, my friends and I would go into the little sundry shop and buy a soda and hang around enjoying the AC for a while. which brings me to the third aspect of Summer that is an absolute must, and that is air conditioning. If you do not have Top Notch air conditioning in the summer around here, you are going to be miserable. It may be a fantastic time to go outside and play with the dog, walk through the park, hang out On the beach, or whatever. but nothing beats leaving those outdoorsy activities behind, opening the front door, and getting hit with that blast of air conditioning that sends cooling Airwaves across your face.
