Summer Vacation

The summer solstice remains weeks away, but as far as many people are concerned, it’s summer. Memorial Day (in my opinion the most relaxing of the patriotic holidays–all the fun of a day off with none of the July 4 pressure) marks the unofficial beginning of sunny, chlorine-scented days separated by short, warm nights. What … Continue reading

Summer Wraps

I should really just switch my Monday-scheduled posts to Tuesday, shouldn’t I? Then you readers wouldn’t have to listen to me explain my blogging tardiness every week. Try and bear with me a little longer? Let’s see if I can’t pull together my case of the Mondays over the next couple of weeks, and then start thinking … Continue reading
