Small Towns, Porch Swings and Lemonade

Remember the long Summer days when everyone would sit on the front porch?
Children playing in the yard, while Mom was pouring Lemonade, chatting to the neighbor.
Clothes drying on the line.
By 5:00 you could smell the different aromas of dinners being made.
The town's entertainment was to watch the games at the ballpark.
When you had to be, and was... home by dark.
When riding your bike all over was the best freedom a kid could have.
When watching TV was a family thing.
And every night after dinner you could see neighbors sitting on their porch swings reading the paper.
These are just a few memory's I have and cherish growing up in a small town.
