School is out!
Shorts and flirty dresses hinted it was almost here. Accents from around the country floated on the air as parents of the local university students picked up their kiddos.
But one place indicated school was out for the k-12 students in my town.
For my readers who live in small towns, you know that for better or worse this store reflects the heartbeat of the people living in the area. Yesterday afternoon was no different.
Yesterday I strolled past the hardware aisle and stopped and stared at the automotive section. It looked like the holiday sales they show on the news--minus the crazy. Talking excitedly, the teenage boys packed the two aisles. Their eyes shone as they examined various car waxes and doodads.
Summer has arrived. They have wheels. Freedom is theirs.
