Scott’s Thoughts: The Summit of Summer

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”

Erma Bombeck, American humorist and newspaper columnist

Sunglasses on the beach.July is the very summit of the Summer, when families have shaken off the school year and the mind turns toward cool pools during the day and fireworks at night. There is real magic in the feel of a neighborhood this time of year, and seldom does a season so please a homeowner as summer.

Summer is the origin of long-lasting memories. True, there may be a lawn to mow, and yes, the air conditioner seems to be running non-stop, but would you trade it for anything? Every season has its charm, but deep in the heat we are drawn to slow our pace and live life loudly among friends, family, and neighbors.

Enjoy the glow and share the sunscreen!
