Eric Alders MPP July 29,2013 Summertime!!!

Shoes in Trees

Summer is a time for loose ends
Tossing shoes high into a tree
I'm sure they don't belong to friends
Ride your bikes all over creation
Race back home for lunch
And get back to your vacation!!!

I hope you all have as many fond memories 
of endless hot summer days on a bike with friends.
Those were the days my friends....

I love summer, almost as much as I did when I was a little kid.

Eric (Bubba) Alder said...

I've often wondered what prompts people to toss shoes in trees or over telephone wires. I bet some are just mean pranks, but surely some are tossed merely for the fun of it.

Thanks for playing M.M.P.P. again, Kathe! It's nice to have a regular participant.

Back when kids when outside to play! Wouldn't want to lose my shoes in a tree though.

Now you can't leave your bikes lay around like that. They'd be gone in a flash. Bugger.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ☺

Bikes, and being barefoot, and building forts. That, and the swimming pool from morn 'til night sometimes. So much fun to be had, so little time!

Summer is wonderful yes...very fast-paced and full of fun. But I think I'll always be an autumn feller at heart :)

I loved summers as a kid riding my bike where ever I wanted. Sad that a lot of kids can't safely roam around like that anymore.
