Summer Stock Sunday 2010 - Grand Finale

Sorry guys. In a fit of remarkably poor planning I planned to close out Summer Stock Sunday the week we're away on vacation in Holland without internet access. Oops. Classic Robin, isn't it? I'm nothing if not scatterbrained. Still loveable though I hope. We'll be back in a few days and I'll be around to see your final Summer Stock 2010 posts then. In the meantime just imagine me in cooler northern climes tooling around a museum or kayaking down a canal or something with a mug of cocoa in one hand and a pancake in the other (or more likely having both the cocoa and the pancakes stolen by the ravenous hordes otherwise known as my children). What? You don't sightsee that way?

Even though it's still hot as blazes here in the Holy Land the kids are back in school (well technically they're on Sukkot vacation, yes a vacation already, but work with me here), the Jewish holidays are nearly over (see Sukkot, above) and the nights are beginning to lose that unbearable humidity (notice I said starting too, as I write this on Wednesday night it's still like living in boiling pea soup out there. Yuck.). Even I can't hold onto summer forever though, much as I'd like to, and the time has come to concede that fall is well on its way, and with it the end of this year's edition of Summer Stock Sunday.

Thank you all for making Summer Stock 2010 a great one, what a treat it's been to share in all your summer fun! And remember, this isn't goodbye, Summer Stock will be back again in May, ready to let the good times roll again.

Wishing everyone the very best of years, and don't be strangers over the winter either. The coffee's hot, the company's good, and there's always another seat around the island.



Nearly time to get those jackets back out of the closet...

So long summer, see you next year.

Have fun in the coolness! And thank you so much for running Summer Stock Sunday again this year, Robin - I've had so much fun with my vintage look at timeless summer.

Your shots of your two children are incredibly engaging. They're like iconic shots of boyhood and girlhood.

I am thinking of you because while I am writing this, you are probably freezing and it's raining cats and dogs. You really have choosen one of the worst weekends ! I am sure you will be glad to be back in your warm holy land, lol !
I hope next time you can make it near Waterloo so that we can meet, and then I also hope the weather would at least be dry !

Look at those beautiful faces! Summer is still lingering for us - no need for jackets yet. Just as well - I'm having a hard time letting go.
