Summertime and the living was easy

Time for Tuesday Tunes, y'all!

Here's today's directive:
Google or use a photo from your collection of something that involves your summer. Then tell us what music figured in the most on your summer playlist this year.

Cannot believe that Labor Day is almost here -- the official end to the summer season. And even though here in Florida our temps will stay very tropical for a while longer, that laid-back, lazy, languid mood that permeates our souls during the summer is fading into fall where crispness and snappiness and a bit of sass hold court.

In honor of the passing of the seasonal torch, here are two of my favorite photos from this past summer:

Cousins and pals Will and my niece Miss P.


Will at a Rays game. GO RAYS! WHOOOO!
Notice the empty seats around him -- that's because we like to sit in what I call the CBA section = Can't Bother Anyone. Way up on the third level there is usually an abundance of seats and parents with kiddos like us take up residence there -- the kids have room to move and well, be kids and we grownups can watch the game from a pretty good vantage point. Plus there are potties and the concession stand right outside our area. It's perfect.

And here, courtesy of Imeem, is my playlist of the summer. These tunes were on heavy rotation 'round here. And in the car. And at the beach. I won't be able to hear any of them from now on without feeling a little virtual sand between my toes. So listen, enjoy and go ahead and move a little if you like -- no one's watching and I won't tell. Promise.

Going to have to quit hanging with you youngsters, pictures like that make me really homesick for when my 31 and 29 year olds were 6 & 4.....whine, whine, whine.
