I do Declare: It is a Hot One!

 We may be having a heat wave these past few days but I remember heat waves past and without Gilletts Lake to cool us off, I don't know what we would have done. We had no air conditioning back then, not even in our cars. "Michigan is too far north for A/C", people would say. You know it had to be hot when Momio and her friend Janet went swimming. In fact this was such a rare event that photos had to be taken to verify this momentous occasion and they did it in style. I remember one time I was riding my 1966 black Schwinn Racer over in the motorcycle trails by Warriors Hill and it was so hot by the time I got back I had a heat rash and I jumped straight off my bike into the lake. That was so refrshing.
