LOWELL / SYRINGA -- “Summer’s here and the time is right, for dancing in the streets.” Blue sky, white clouds, wildflowers blooming, baby birds cheeping with open beaks, and campfires crackling along the riverbanks.

Get ready for the 4th of July! It will be here next week with family reunions, camp outs, red, white and blue everywhere, with flags flying, and celebrations of Independence Day. We’ll have corn on the cob, watermelon, barbeques, and lots of cold drinks.

My Mother, Martha Engledow, will turn 101. Happy birthday, Mom!
