Flash Friday 55: Summertime

The tell-tell signs of summer:
The early morning cacophony of birdsong...
Hot and steamy Carolina days...
The ice cream truck serenading its way down the street...
The laughter of children waving their dollars for a treat...
The smell of barbecue permeating from backyard oases...
And the annual ritual of Munchie Boy's summer "buzz cut".
Sweet!

There is something very special about Summer...I remember our ice cream man named Louie (Good Humor) and also the Mr. Softie truck with it's catchy jingle music! :)

Love the images in your 55!

Wow! What a cut! Wonder if I should do the same to my hair?

Alice Audrey said...

That's short all right. We used to cut my son's hair like that, sometimes even at his request. :)

Don't tell Munchie Boy I said this but he is sooooo cute!

I love some of the traditions of summer. I love flip flops and lemonade and blowing bubblues w/the small bottle of bubbles and the small wand that makes your hand all sticky!
Have a great weekend! :)

Stan Ski said...

Schools here are strict about short hair, so in the summer all the kids grow and dye their hair.
Great post!

Jenny said...

Looks like the cut will definitely keep him cool for the HOT summer!!!

Hey I love your 55-word list -- it makes me smile in gratitude for all the joys of summer.

That buzz cut is pretty rad, too! :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

Yep, that's a sure sign of summer. Nice 55 and a very handsome young man.

The summer cut is brilliant! My boys used to get the same when they were younger.

I'm off to look up this big word you used: cacophony. Eh?

Raoulysgirl said...

ACK! Raouly just got a buzz cut, too. Well...kinda. He still has some on top...it's kinda spikey...really cute...makes him look 10 years younger.

Something tells me that's not why Munchie Boy does it, though! LOL! :D
