Summer photos depict leisure, work and scenic memories

<p>Brilliant sunset from my back deck.</p>

To some, summer consists of those “lazy, hazy, crazy days” Nat King Cole sang about more decades ago than I like to remember.  I do recall a few of those indolent days spent mostly in the swimming hole, fishing, playing baseball, or eating homegrown watermelons under a shade tree.

I also recall hoeing the garden, mowing the lawn and sitting through long-winded sermons in a church that wouldn’t feel the religious experience of air conditioning for another 20 years.

This has been a busy summer, including a move, knee surgery, a 10-day 11-state road trip vacation, Little League baseball games, and my usual farm visits, summer meetings, and, for the first time in several years, a small backyard garden

Here are a few photos representing some of my summer activities, and a few from folks who graciously share what they do in the summertime.
