1. Did you go to any kind of summer camp? What did you like best
about it if you did?
Yes. I went to Day Camp here in town and it was held at a local park. My best friend and I went to that about 3 summers until we reached the age limit. It was held from 10-3 each day and ran for two 4-week sessions. I really enjoyed it. We would play games, do crafts and play at the playground in the mornings. Then, after lunch, we would go to the pool. There was a little wading pool for the younger kids at the park and the older kids went across the street to the high school pool. Fun memories of that time as a kid. I also went to camp with my high school youth group up in the mountains. I loved that too.

2. What is your opinion on sleep-away camps? Good or not so good?
I enjoyed them. With Day Camp (mentioned above) we always ended our summer with a camp out at the beach for 3 nights. That was actually my first time being away from home and I really enjoyed it. I would get a little homesick at first, but every sleep-away camp I attended was good.

3. What is one of your favorite things about summer?
Baseball. I love going to Dodgers games during the summer. I don't like much else now that I'm an adult. I hate being hot and we are currently having a brutal heatwave. Ugh!

4. Other than The Beach Boys (too obvious) what songs say "summer"
to you?
"Saturday in the Park" - Chicago
"In the Summertime" - Mungo Jerry
"Summer Breeze" - Seals & Crofts


5. What is a favorite cool drink on a hot day? (This new Michelada
trend...clamato juice and beer...makes me quesy)
A cherry limeade from Sonic.


Weekend plans? It's been horribly hot this past week and we'll cool down (to the 90's) next week. So, my friends and I are going to the casino tomorrow to enjoy their air conditioning. I have a swamp cooler which does absolutely nothing in this kind of heat. 110 and humidity is not a friend to a poor little evaporative cooler.

1. Did you go to any kind of summer camp? What did you like best
about it if you did?

Only Y day camp for me. Sooo long ago; I think it was "marksmanship" with BB guns, archery, and hammering disks of metal into ashtrays.


2. What is your opinion on sleep-away camps? Good or not so good?

Our kids when to sleep-away camps. In general "good". Independence and fun. And finding out that their parents weren't the absolute worst.

3. What is one of your favorite things about summer?

Birds! Green leaves. Air conditioning.

4. Other than The Beach Boys (too obvious) what songs say "summer"
to you?

"Green Onions", "Sleep Walk", "She Loves You", "Mr. Postman" (either version).

5. What is a favorite cool drink on a hot day? (This new Michelada
trend...clamato juice and beer...makes me quesy)

Sun tea on ice -- no lemon, no sugar.

Weekend plans?
Breakfast out on Saturday (check!), Netflix and pasta salad.
