Summertime Fun . . .

As a young girl, my sister's and I spent countless hours swinging and see-sawing in the playground our father had created for us.  Our swings were made from the trees in our woods that my father cut down, stripped and connected together with 3 rope swings.  That swing had to be 15 feet high and you could swing W-A-Y out into the sky!  (I can't believe we didn't get hurt, now that I look back!) But that's life in the country and you played as hard as you worked!
