Of the many recordings that are considered “summer songs,” I am sure we all have our personal favorites that evoke for us the feeling of summer when we hear them, and there is definitely something special about “those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” (the “hazy” part for sure applies to this summer for everyone!). The same can be said for the numerous summer activities available to us, some of which can be enjoyed right here in Lakeport or nearby (sadly, the Lake Thoreau pool renovation will not be completed in time for our enjoyment this summer).
I want to end this somewhat nostalgic reflection on summer with a well-known line from one of my favorite TV shows of the 1980s, “Hill Street Blues,” in which Sergeant Phil Esterhaus always concluded morning roll call, “Hey, let's be careful out there.”
