As summer draws to a close for many people with kids, what was the best summer you ever had and what year? For me, 1989 had a great job working outside in the sun all day on summer break from Oregon. Great tan, I was 21 would go out drinking every night with college friends many times just on a golf course or in a field with 10-15 peole and a cooler of beers. Dated a lot of good looking girls all summer, and many of my friends worked around New England like on the Cape or in Vermont and we would road trip on weekends to party with the friends they had made. I was in great shape, strong, dumb enough to not understand or be scared of the world and ready for anything. Kinda knew it couldn't get much better at the time and loved every second no responsibilities and a calm before going back to college for my junior year. Think of it every summer and hope my kids have one like it too someday. What about you?
