Summer in my personal history

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History – Week #28

 Summers in Alabama in the 50s6s and 70s were hot, muggy and filled with sounds of cicadas, locusts and crickets.

I remember lots of camping trips to Davy Crockett  State Park, in the hills of Tennessee where it was somewhat cooler than Huntsville. We sometimes “joined” a swimming pool, or the YMCA, but usually got ear infections from it.

But most of all I remember watching sunsets from the back porch, which overlooked downtown Huntsville.
