Day 01: High School Reunion, Vodka, John Prine

My 20-year high school reunion was last night. Wasn't able to be there, though. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since I walked the halls of my high school with my stupid haircut and no clue whatsoever what life outside of those four years would entail.

Instead, I decided to spend the first night of my summer break a few hours away -- relaxing at home. My wife and I did a number on some Seagram's sweet tea vodka as I queued up the songs of my high school years and she caught up on her Army Wives binge. We wrapped up the evening on the porch with Jeffrey Foucault’s album of John Prine covers. The perfect end to a cool night.

Bobby Showers has a tune called Street Light that has become my theme at the start of every summer since I first heard the song.

“I didn't get a damn thing done. It was great.”

Preach, Bob.

The Summer of Tim continues...
