It's possible I may have a bad attitude about the arrival of summer. On the eve of the Solstice I left for a mission trip to a town in Maine bordering Quebec. Beset by a swarm of bloodthirsty black flies, and a "classic allergic reaction" according to the PA at the Urgent Care, I had to return the next morning to a week of Benadryl and ice packs. (If only I had known about Bug Band *before*...)
But I don't want that to ruin summer for the rest of you. So I invite you to share five things you love--or don't--about summer. The tone is up to you!
I could easily share the five things I liked about summer when I was a kid- but that would be cheating. So here are my five things:
1. I love the long summer days.
2. I love lightining bugs (especially when I found out they are not found all over the country.)
3. I love Sweet Corn! Especially Illini Super Sweet...
