Happy First Day of Summer!

In 2016, Summer at Sonnystone on June 21, 2016 at 11:55 am

Did you catch the Strawberry Full Moon last night?   I subscribe to the Farmers Almanac newsletters and they streamed a giant telescope view of the rise on the East Coast.  It was so cool that I almost forgot to head outside and see the show from Sonnystone.  The pink orb was surreal, but clouds wanted to spoil my view.   I love me some MoonShine…

Thursday has become my day with Olivia and last week we went over to Henderson.   The W.C. Handy Blues and BBQ fest was ongoing, but not much daytime activity that day.  To our dismay, it was also the hottest day of the year–98degrees–with humidity so thick that you had to push your way through the air.  We ate in some a/c and then went down to their little splash area.

Casey and I went back on Saturday  and listened to the always-excellent jams, enhanced by the addition of large screens for the people who sit at the back.


So now it’s really summer!   I’m going to book a flight to NYC today and I’ll return with Emma and Eliza on 7/19.  In addition to Camp Sonnystone, we have a Field Trip planned (in the Coach) to Lake Rudolph and Holiday World.  They all just grow up too fast, so the sooner I get them here, the better.  Olivia is as excited to see them as I am, and when the NYers see how much Samantha has changed, they will be delighted.  Cousins are the best, aren’t they?

So that’s all for now.  Oh, except here’s my current Summer Song, one I’ve revived many times since its 1992 release…
