In Grade 6 (when I was about 11-12 years old), we had MEDIEVAL DAYS at our school. A troupe of performers introduced us to the medieval life, through swordplay, the garb, the food, the customs. It was a time that I never forget and even the intervening years did not dim it – I love that period in history above all others – not that it was a picnic for those who lived IN it.

Last summer, there was so much smoke in the air that outdoor fun was out. This summer, most of our beaches are no-swim zones due to high coliform (poo) counts. Childhood memories of sharing bathwater with friends in England, very barbaric, I was usually third of four, the water a kinda translucent at that point. The last person might as well have a bath in the kitchen sink with the dirty dishes.
