On June 25, 2009, I wrote a post entitled “What Are You Planning To Do This Summer?” It began: “OK, summer is 1/3 over, but there are 2 more months that count as summer vacation. I’m tired of listening to all the political haggling and do-nothing Republicans. So it’s a good time for us to write stories on “What I did/or are planning to do during summer vacation.” Sort of like in grade school except we’re all much older!”
It’s now the week of September 14. Kids are back in school and the temperatures are getting cooler. It’s actually below 100° for a change here in Tempe, AZ. I’m getting back to my regular school year activities (a couple of singing groups). We’re driving to Salt Lake City for a grandson’s 4th birthday next week. During the summer months, we spent a week in Washington D.C. Otherwise, I pretty much stayed inside because of the many, many days of +110°.
Enough about my occasional dull, boring and hot days. We all know what’s going on in the world of politics, and not much has changed. We all know about the outbursts of Mr. Wilson, Kanye West and Serena Willams. I hope this isn’t the wave of the future.
Here’s the challenge: I would like to see how many of you would be willing to write a paragraph or two describing what you did this summer. So, pretend you’re back in school and you have to write a report. There is life beyond politics!
