a very important date.
Said the Mad Hatter.
Me too. Mea Culpa. But - I'm here now and that's what matters.
I hope everyone is ready for the long Labor Day Weekend. The unofficial end of summer.
When I was a kid, Labor Day marked the end of the season at Aunt Louise's resort out at Bangs Lake. Usually, us 'family' kids - the one's who were related in some way to one another, and got to stay out there ALL SUMMER LONG - were long gone by then. The morning chores of cleaning up the picnic ground, bailing out the rowboats and cleaning the seaweed off the shoreline were left to others. But the oars had all been stowed in the storage area under Cottage #2, the one on the side of the hill, and the boats were pulled up onto the shore and turned over so they wouldn't fill with water. It was always the sad part of the summer - leaving Aunt Lou's. There were always friendships that had developed over the summer. Families always came to Aunt Lou's with kids in tow. I really think that's why all us family kids were encouraged to stay out there for the summer - so there would always be somebody for the Cottage Kids to play with. I guess Shady Crest was the original 'Kid Friendly' place to go.
I guess, if you had to be 'used' - that was the way to have it happen.
Have a great weekend. Speaking of the weekend, there should be two 'tastes' of Sarah over the weekend - and maybe on Monday I will lay out my vision of the way the rest of the story is going to play out. Maybe.
We'll see. (I always hated it when my Dad said "We'll see", because it usually meant 'No". But not here. At least, I don't think so.)
