When I was a boy, summers were filled with hot days. There wasn't such thing as an air conditioner, and, life was a lot simpler and we had other ways to beat the heat, that were smart and a lot of fun.
My parents would take us all down to the local swimming pool, where we would swim, drip dry, soak in the sun, get hot, rinse and repeat. We'd do this all day long, playing with other kids, making friendships and living.
I rememberd this the other night when I took my two little boys down to the local pool. And you know what? This beats sitting inside an air conditioned hotbox watching the television or playing the Wii anyday...
Don't you think?
