My brother and I have spent thirty some odd out of forty some odd years having issues with each other, some real and some imagined. Our lifestyles and life choices are polar opposites. There are dynamics to our relationship that I choose not to think about or discuss. And growing up, I recall few "fun" times spent together.

However, recently Josh showed me this on youtube. As I watched and listened, it reminded me of a summer where there was not so much conflict between my brother and me. We had gone to a garage sale (back when they weren't common every weekend things) and he found an old 45 of this song. My mom bought it (I'm sure she regretted it daily) and we played it a thousand times that summer, singing at the top of our lungs and acting out the lyrics. So here's to happy summer memories...
