    Life Was So Easy When Summer Lasted Forever...

    Remember that? the feeling that summer lasted forever, and there was so much thrilling potential, just around the corner - all the waterfights, camps, sleepovers, parties, family visits, and feasts that summer held in store?   I reckon its always summertime in heaven.
