Mysteries of Summer

Mystery # 1:  This summer I’ve been running a writing group with some wonderful writers who just finished third grade.  Last time we each wrote a description of a house and they all turned out to be spooky.  Why is it so much more fun to write about a creepy house than a nice one? 

Mystery#2: I  bring a pencil and paper with me wherever I go.  But who knew that if you have an inspiration while you’re at the pool, a kickboard makes an excellent lap desk? (a dry kickboard, that is)

Mystery # 3: Is it really possible to fry an egg on a sidewalk? (This week I believe the answer is YES)

Mystery #4: Why can’t summer last at least 11 months?
