Today was the last day of school here in Bucklin today and I thought it would be fitting to write about my favorite season…summer. Actually fall is my favorite, but in all truthfulness I’m not picky as long as it is warm outside. I despise the cold and so therefore winter is not even considered as an option for the favorite season category.
The last day of school doesn’t have too much meaning for me now-a-days because I sit behind my desk at BTI from 8am to 6pm, Monday through Friday (occasionally ‘til noon on Saturdays), year-round. Some days I can’t help but think how nice it would be to be back in school again…not for the classes, but for the schedule and the carefree attitude.
Oh, if I was just 18 again…
Unfortunately I do not get to spend nearly as much time at the lake as I used to, but the summers since my accident have proved to be the time where I get to travel…and who doesn’t love to travel? The first couple of years I traveled mostly for therapy reasons, going to both Houston and Detroit. I never got to explore much in Houston, but I sure did in Detroit. I absolutely loved it up there. On my off-days from therapy, Mom and I would venture out downtown or simply spend the day reading and people-watching in Campus Martius.
In September, we “surprised” my Aunt Lois with a 3-day cruise to the Bahamas for her 50th Birthday. Six of us Vogel girls went and it was a trip to be remembered. We had a blast and I think it’s about time to start planning for Aunt Jeanne’s!
I am blessed to have been able to go the places where I have and I am grateful for all the wonderful memories, but I have it pretty good here at home too.

Hope you all have a great summer!
