just saying it makes you wanna go ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh........

June has always been that month that screams SUMMER.
School was always out for the SUMMER in June.
You put away your school clothes and slipped on your SUMMER pinafores and pedal pushers and jean cut-offs in June.
The swimming pool was open all day long in June.
Kennywood Day was coming soon!
The merry music of the ice cream truck could be heard in June.
Nights filled with playing release and catching fire flies.
Sunburned noses and bright red shoulders with white bathing suit straps.
Giggling your way up big hills and crossing big streets with girlfriends.
Strawberry ice cones and plump red cherries.
Lemonade stands and neighborhood carnivals.
Laundry blowing in the breeze in every back yard.
Your mother sitting on the porch watching her roses bloom.
That was what June was all about.
In the town where I grew up.

Happy June everyone.
Say AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and let the memories of your Junes fill your heart and mind!

Sa' Side"...

Happy June to YOU!
