Summertime, Summertime, Sum Sum Summertime

First day of Summer is June 20th. Mother Nature doesn't pay attention to our silly calendars though. It has felt like summer for a month already. One day it was even 92 degrees Fahrenheit.

For children not attending year around school, summer means freedom and fun and vacation.

For me, June 20th is when I spend a day with my friends visiting from California. I have know Mr and Mrs for over 50 years and I was in their wedding and have stayed in touch all through the years of me roaming the country. Two years ago she was in Kansas with her mom for her mom's birthday party with relatives and she and her mom came to where I lived south of Omaha at that time. I will have a great time showing them my little town.

Happy Summer, everyone. For those of us that live in snow in winter, remember what we were saying in the middle of winter. Enjoy this summer.

Here in the UK we are actually having the first lovely hot sunny day for weeks!

Have fun!

They promised 80 degrees and sunshine here in Portland, Oregon, but it's currently cloudy and forty-five degrees. My hope for a sunny day is diminishing. So go out there and enjoy the sunshine for those of us who can't. And be sure to bring some sun block.

As Cool Joe says, it is nice here today, but I doubt it will last
Off for my cycle home in the sun - enjoying it while it is here!

We are having the first sunshine we've had since last Friday, and it's smashing. Sunshine and warmth, all you need is to have some rainy weather to really appreciate it. Have a great time with Mr and Mrs, CiCi! :-)

All day long I never realized it was the first day of summer! It's been HOT here, and windy, but we've had rain almost daily for at least a week. I'm ready for blue skies!

Happy First Day of Summer!

How great to get to see friends you have known for so long. You will enjoy their visit no matter what the weather.
It has been extra hot here with a cool down today. I love summer so it has all been good for me.

Seems to me, if memory serves me correctly (which, sometimes it does, sometimes not so much) but wasn't there a song a long, long time ago about "Hot time, summer in the city" I think were some of the words, maybe the title -can't remember that much, ya know. But anyway, that definitely is what we're experiencing here now -a VERY HOT TIME in the village as well as in virtually every part of Pennsylvania and I believe the entire eastern seaboard too!
