SUMMER AND MELONS...

Tried to make my blog color look all "cantalope-y"  - as this is the time of the year melons are piled high in the supermarkets and roadside stands.  A trip to Morgantown (my old stomping grounds) up Rt. 23 towards Lancaster, is a festival of roadside stands selling their farm goods of corn, tomatoes, cucumbers and lots and lots of melons.  I love to make that trip - stopping over and over again to purchase goodies to take home. 
July always seems to me to be the month to REALLY enjoy the summerthyme - with picnics and family get togethers - visiting the beautiful Pennsylvania State Parks - watching the lightning bugs at night (or fireflies as some call them), sipping iced tea and enjoying the neighborhood !  An impromptu overnight trip to the Jersey shore is always a special treat too!  Just might have to do that soon!!
Hope your July is fun-filled with lots of picnics and impromptu trips!!!

Hi Judy,
Just in case you don't see your email...do you have any pedestals left? If so, please put one aside for me and I'll pick it up on saturday.
Keep cool in this nasty heat.
