Water Adventures

My family was big on almost anything having to do with playing in the water. We romped with wild abandon at Petaluma’s new huge pool where (sadly) they used to have 4 diving boards with a 12 foot deep end to dive into. The diving boards are gone, and with them went one more tool for making great childhood memories. Here’s what our diving boards looked like.

The Dry Grass of August

For those hot summer nights, some may want to curl up with a good book in front of the cooler. According to KTC, you will not be disappointed in the book The Dry Grass of August by Anna Jean Mayhew. It chronicles the life of Jubie Watts, her family, and their black housekeeper Mary Luther, a woman that Jubie loves and admires. Read the stirring book review by KTC on The Dry Grass of August.

July Themes

Where did June go? This summer has flown by all too quickly, and I never put up the June writing prompts. I apologize to my bloggers that share their stories on this site.

This time I am not placing dates or deadlines, just the writing prompts, so share when you can.

Since July is all about hot summer nights and friends, I decided to use these as suggestions for our stories. Have fun, and do not forget to share your tales.
