Those Summer Days..

I was remembering today on how a hot day like we've had lately, my Mom would come home from work and say "Let's go swimming!!!!". My brother and I would change in record time, Mom would pack a paperback and put her suit on, and we'd drive down to the 42nd St beach at Lake Harriet. Afterwards, we go to the former Baskin-Robbins at 50th and Penn for an ice cream cone. Dad worked nights so he missed out.

I miss my Mom and bro.

Cathy,

We used to go to Lake Hiawatha for evening swims. There is nothing like swimming in a lake. Stay cool!

Aww, (((((Cathy)))))

What great summer memories you have! That is a gift, to be sure.

I miss my Mama too. May they all rest in peace.

My Mom used to do the same thing. She always said you couldn't take chances with the MN weather and the dust in the the house wasn't going anywhere.

I miss her...
