Another Memorial Day weekend is approaching and it is time to open my imaginary summer cottage. My imaginary cottage is quite small and on a crystal clear lake. The cool breeze from the lake guarantees our comfort on the hottest summer days. Once we are at the cottage we don't need to use our car, except for the occasional trip to the drive-in movie theater or flea market. The kids pick baskets of berries for breakfast,pies and jam. It is amazing how great my pie crusts turn out using the restored vintage oven. The giant hydrangeas in the backyard make for the most spectacular bouquets all summer long. Lulu and Deke love spending their days together, swimming, fishing and hiking, and they never argue at the imaginary cottage. O.K., that may be asking for too much.
