Summer in high gear



My lovely wife and I just got back from visiting friends we haven't seen in a year. The last couple weeks have been filled with family and friends get togethers. It's great. I'm blessed to be able to see my kids and grandkids. Not a lot of other stuff is getting done, but it can wait.

One of the things I learned is that you can't defer childhood. Kids will grow up if you are there for them or not. Fortunately, I did not learn it the hard way. I might not have much money, but I've great memories of messing around in boats, pushing sand around on the beach, and chasing toads around the yard. It's all good.

This August has been especially busy. That doesn't mean I haven't found time to lounge around in a hammock at my beach. What's the point of owning waterfront property if you can't do stuff like that?

Today it's brunch with old friends than catching up with family at a local amusement park. Summer in the Great North Woods is short so one has to make the most of it.

  3. You do a lot of socializing. Between that and your travels you probably never get bored.

    1. Boredom is not an issue. It takes work to build a tribe.

      I thought I'd be some kind of hermit, but made some great life long friends, got married, had kids, and things just spiraled out from there.

  5. Living the endless summer is mostly your frame of mind.

    1. . . . and with a mind like mine, anything is possible, not matter what the outside reality says.
