Tuesday Thoughts

It's that time of year again, happens every year. The county fairs are in full swing and the heat is almost unbearable outside. Elephant ears, lemon shake-ups, cotton candy and a host of other foods permeate the air with their aroma. Yard mowing is reduced to maybe once every two weeks. Indiana sweet corn is being sold on almost every corner. Knox County watermelons and cantaloupes are just weeks away from harvest.

Parents are counting the days, not weeks, before kids return to school and peace returnss to the homestead. Summer camps are ending, school camps for football and band are gearing up. We have Xmas in July sales, back to school sales and ice cream vendors are raking in the dough. College bound freshmen are furiously trying to get as much time with friends as humanly possible.

And to think, 42 years ago today there was a birth. Seems surreal that I was born among all these summertime activities.
