Summer Memories by Darlene Beck Jacobson

S and sticking to sweaty skin - perfect for building.
U nder an umbrella, hiding from the sun.
M ilkshakes from a tall silver vessel - enough to share.
M udpies served to dolls with tea.
E ating from a tray table in front of the TV 'cause it's too hot in the kitchen.
R iding the carousel for a quarter.  The ride lasts forever 'cause the guy is flirting with mom.
M ovies at the drive-in.  A car load of kids for $2.00.
O range toe nails felt so grown up and daring.
R eplaying 45's - "She Loves You" and "Twist and Shout" - until daddy begs us to stop.
I ce cream cones dripping down mt hand.  How fast can you lick?
E verything seems possible in summer.
S itting under a tree with The Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew, and Archie and Friends.  Reading All Day!


  1. These are fantastic. Love the milkshake in the silver vessel.

  2. Yes, yes,yes! Those milkshakes! The 45s! And you have to write more about the long carousel ride because of the flirtation with Mom!
