Texas Summer in 1956~

Doesn’t this look like fun? Don’t you wish we could do this again? Well, I guess, theoretically we COULD do it but it wouldn’t be the same. There was just something about playing outside in the hose/sprinkler — not worrying about getting sunburned or washing off the sunscreen, not worrying about germs but tasting how great that cold water was out of that hose, laying on big towels drying off in the sun, eating cherry tomatoes that Granny grew just outside that fence. Life was good in 1956.

  1. Yes, life WAS very good in 1956. Well, except for those swim caps.

  3. Yeah, I sort of wonder what the purpose was in those — like we needed to protect our hair/ears from the hose? I mean, so what if the hair got wet — couldn’t have been any worse than being under that thick rubber stuff. But, take a close look at your tan lines! Man, now if we did that, the dermatology police would be after us.
