Smells, Tastes and Other Memories of Summer

The smell of a chlorine pool and Coppertone

Cold watermelon at a picnic

catching fireflies in mayonnaise jars with holes punched in the lid and watching them light up the jar

The sounds of kids playing hide and seek until after dark or 9:30, whichever came first

Popsicles on the back porch

The sound of the ice cream freezer making homemade peach ice cream

The juice of fresh peaches running down my chin.
