Today is National Nebraska Day. The Corn Husker State joined the union on March 1, 1867. Pioneers migrating westward along the Oregon, California and Mormon Trails traveled through the area, marking off recognized landmarks along the way.
Love summertime. Love laying on my back and watching the stars at night. Love listening to the crickets and the bull frogs and all the magical sounds of a summer’s evening. Love having Credence Clearwater Revival playing in my head long after the music has stopped. Best of all, I love peaches. I love the way the juices of the fruit run down my chin. I love the way the fuzz tickles my face. Biting into a freshly picked peach is like taking a bite right out of summer itself.
