The Summer's off to a pretty nice start despite the heat and ridiculous thunder storms. It's been a long time since I was a Summer person but it looks like I'm back!
Obviously my kids have a lot to do with it and I think the economy may be playing a part too. I hear a lot of people are interested in spending time outside again and backyards seem to be really big this year. I've been eyeballing some pretty sweet patio furniture myself lately. I also have a vision of a really nice wooden swing set for the boys.
The other night my wife and I were sitting out back and I saw a lightning bug that triggered an emotional response from me. All sorts of really fond memories of Summertime came flooding back into my brain, like Summers down at the Jersey Shore, camping, fishing, playing war with the neighborhood kids etc. Really good American Summertime shit.
Of course there are a few minor issues... It seems that I only own one pair of shorts and two bathing suits. I have absolutely no idea what people are wearing from June to September these days, but I'm fairly confident that I'll figure it out.
I should also mention that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince comes out in a couple of weeks. I've already started the Pot-a-thon in preparation for what will be the biggest Summer movie of the year. Corky personally guarantees it! Pretty bold prediction if you ask me.
Because you never can have enough Fresh Prince...
