    Nice job, Ray. You pressed all the right buttons to capture all the emotions of Summer. The anticipation, the fun and the end of a good time. After the heat and craziness of this past few months, I think it’s fair to say most of us are looking forward to cooler and hopefully more peaceful weather. It was a good run but it’s time to move on. I’m ready! Bring it on. Thank you Ray for a reminder of all the special fun that Summer brings.

      Thanks, Don. Summer music has always been memorable but when it comes to the weather, I have always preferred the fall.
      ROCK ON, BRO!

    Thanks for this perfect tribute to an incredible summer! Yes, it was HOT and yes, it was rainy. But there were plenty of perfect days in between. Now we will move on to fall, another lovely season. Thanks for helping us celebrate this transition.

      I know this summer was a special one for you. So many beach days and of course, your incredible “stepathon”!
      Glad you enjoyed it all!

    Thanks Ray, perfect musical end to what as been a less than enjoyable summer in the Midwest. Still, our hearts go out to folks dealing with disasters on both coasts and in the south. Sounds like you plan a break soon. Enjoy the New England fall and O look forward to your return. Miss the VT/NH/ME fall and you my friend!

      Thank you, Marty. πŸ™‚
      Yes, it has been a summer most of won’t forget (and not because it was a barrel of laughs). Still, we trudge forward, hoping for better days. I will be taking a social media break later in September and I’m hoping I can make it last 2-3 months.
      I hope Karen and you make the most of every single day, and I hope all is well in your world.

    Always great to see a medley on your timeline. Yes, it was a crazy summer, & Fall is my favorite season, but still hate to see summer end! Great summer songs, and of course my personal favorite to end the medley. Thanks, Ray for all you do and will miss you during your break-but enjoy it. And, maybe, you will surprise us with a medley now & then!!

      Thank you, Pat ❀️
      As much as I enjoy summer, this one was something entirely different. If it wasn’t raining, we had stifling heat and humidity. But fall is on the way and that’s the season I love!
      As always, I am so glad you enjoyed the memories and the music!
      P.S. I just might surprise you every once in a while. πŸ™‚
