In the good old summertime

June is officially bustin’ out all over. The hills are alive and the Upper Delaware River region is thrumming with activity. In the last few days, the Wonder Dog and I have been to the theatre, a concert under the stars, attended a block party and watched some belly dancers shaking their groove thing.
