A Farewell to Summer 1976 and 2015
For me, the summer of 2015 was bittersweet. Another child left the nest to be on her own. While at the same time I've seen my parents' health decline rapidly. So the summer of 2015 was a turning point in many ways for me.
And yes that is Christi Brinkley on the cover. She had a brief catalog modeling career. (3)
So that deserves some closeups....
Of course, we can't take take a look at summer without checking out the backyard scene....
(1) A fiery West Texas not to far from where I was born. If you're in the area, the sunsets out there are absolutely incredible. I was born in the oilfield, and I'll guess that's where I'll always be!
(2) Yes, an actual manufacturing company, and where did all of those go?
(3) And a small, very small hint of the bicentennial in the background with the fireworks.
