Cooling Off

Mel BooneWelcome June! Well, if you like warm weather you will welcome June along with the next few months of warm temperatures (along with humidity if you live in a place like Missouri where I live).

I love the summer months. I guess I really can't help it. I've never liked winter, except for the few times as a kid in school when we got a snow day. That's another story though.

As always, some things from my childhood are still the same today. Cooling off during the summer months is one of them.

When I was younger, there was the swimming pool, built back in the 1930s. That iconic landmark closed forever a few years ago. The pool needed to be fixed and it was decided not to fix it. A new pool, to be built north of town hasn't been built yet, so you see a lot of backyard pools springing up around town.

I never learned to swim, so I'll stick with the little kiddie pools from Dollar General. Soaking my feet in a kiddie pool is as far as I want to go on that particular summer pastime.



Then there is my all time favorite, watermelon. I love them. The best cool down item ever in the summer time, next to ice cream and Kool-Aid. At least the watermelon is healthy, right?
