Summertime Rolls
I love the Jane's Addiction song Summertime
Rolls. Even if I listen to it mid-winter, I think
about summer, and as far as listening to it in
the summer, it could be my daily anthem. It's
certainly a tune worthy of mention in our rec-
ommended summer driving tunes on page x.
Sadly, it seems that as I get older
each year passes, summer seems
to roll by faster and faster.
With the long days and hot
weather, I feel like there is so
much I want to do but just
not enough time. I want to
read, linger and laze but also
frolic in the water, dance,
hike, and camp. And of
course there are always new
summer bevies and grilling
recipes to try, and gardens
to tend; so much to fit
into such a short season!

To me, the month
of August is the peak
of camp season. In
Camp Vinyl, writer
Tanya Gouthro reminisc-
es about
enjoying old vinyl "camp" records. And a local
decorator gives us chic advice on camp decor.
And of course, nothing says summer quite like
great live music. There certainly was no short-
age of live shows in Thunder Bay this July, and
August promises to deliver even more. I was
thrilled to put on my cowboy boots twice re-
cently: once when I danced to the alternative
urban country twang of The Wild Turkeys and
twice when I went to see the very entertaining
and the very funny Fred Eaglesmith, featur-
ing the very aptly named The Fabulous Ginn
Sisters who hail all the way
from Texas. This month,
good music continues
with the Summer in the
Parks concert series at
Marina Park, featuring
local roots musician Billy
Manzik, also profiled in
this month's music section.
Local folk/rock favou-
rite The Auditor General,
takes the stage at the Red
Rock Folk Festival in August
along with Indie darling The
Wooden Sky.
Hot summer nights earn us
a cool treat... I'm off to
get myself an ice cream cone
(story on page 10) and then I
think I'll linger and laze on my
back deck long into the summer
evening, listening to summer
tunes and letting summer roll all
over me.
