Summer? Sandy Hook. Wildwood. Monmouth Park.  Mungo Jerry. “Close to You.” Water pistols and nickel punks. Bikes with baseball cards flap-growling  in the spokes. And when it got really hot,  we begged Dad (the man in charge of all things lawn-related) to deploy that ultimate weapon against the July heat: the sprinkler.

SPRINKLER — It just wasn’t summer without the oscillating sprinkler on the front lawn and a trio of giggly girlfriends running and jumping through its streams.
DROPS — What summer fun looked like if you wore glasses.

Don’t miss these visions of summer:

  1. I loved running through the sprinkler when I was a kid. When my son was little, we used to walk the sidewalk, aiming for the neighbors with the green lawns just to get sprinkled a bit on our walks.

    Thanks for the pingback.

    1. I don’t think we ever grow out of that sprinkler phase. As adults, we simply find “good” excuses to enjoy the spray just one more time. 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by!
