Is It Summer Yet?

Can you believe that Spring is almost gone? What happened? I thought I would have soooooo much accomplished but “no” I really haven’t gotten to where I thought I would be! How about you, fellow travelers? Did you set out to have so much accomplished by now but haven’t reached your aim? I am surprised because I thought I would be so much further along….on my journey!

The year is half gone! What happened to the days? It is almost the first day of Summer!  One thing though; I love these Raspberry Dream Sickles! This is my favorite fruit and after that it is Strawberries. Oh, it is the Season for luscious fruits and yummy Ice Cream! I’m looking forward to that on hot Summer days and evenings!

Does anybody remember going to their favorite Ice Cream or Malt Shop? How about A & W Root Beer stands? Remember the trays clipped unto your drivers side window partly rolled up and the frosty glasses? Oh, I can just taste it now…..remembering the old fashioned Root Beer stand with 50,000 bugs hangin’ out by the lights and the zap! when they got fried? Do you remember the jug of Root Beer? ( I do and I suppose it dates me but who cares when you are past 50 and climbing!) And remember the Root Beer Floats? Looking at this picture, can you taste it?????? Makes me want to run out and get one; I gotta stock up! Too late tonight as it’s just about midnight…..tomorrow though!

Oh, a little nostalgia this evening and on my 30th post! (I think it is anyway)  This is something to me and probably my shortest post for a while….LOL!

I remember Dad stopping at the stand on the way home from the late-night drive in; who remembers those? Anyway, he would get the jug and take it home so we could all have Root Beer Floats. Nobody wanted to go downstairs though and get the Ice Cream in the freezer in the creepy corner with spider webs behind it….ewwww! But, one of us would be practically forced to and if it was me I would hurry down and back up and feel creepy crawly all night afterwards, I probably still would because I don’t like critters. Those were the lazy Summer Days and the Firefly’s were out when we got home; usually a Friday night and we might go outside and try to catch them later or the next night.

It’s kinda hard to capture those but I think he did a pretty good job!

Well, not long and Summer is here and I need to pick up some slack and get on with it! I will probably get more accomplished now and to the end of the year than in the beginning; don’t know why though??? I will have one more picture to get ya excited about what is coming and see ya on my next post, until then Happy remainder of Spring!

Oh ya!!! I wanna RIDE this year!!!!  Photo credit to Sergey Zhesterev on Unsplash!

LOL! Maybe this doesn’t excite you but it does me!!!

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best part of my life and learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should so I will take them up on it and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 chronological years old. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 2 Great-granddaughters. I am currently staying a while with my youngest Daughter and family before I head to AZ. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and when I get back to AZ I will re-activate my Gym membership.
