Summertime...Yes Please!

For most of us, there are four seasons throughout the year.  With each comes specific weather, holidays and activities to be enjoyed.  Now I'm not one to say that any one is better than the other, but when summer rolls around, it is tough to find me in a bad mood.  To help paint a picture for my affinity to the warm months of the year, I'll provide a few snapshots of things that come to mind with the summer season:

1 - BBQs.  Whether grilling up burgers, brats, dogs or a delicious steak, it is tough to beat the atmosphere of a cookout.  Throw in some tunes, a cooler filled to the brim and good company, and you've got yourself a little slice of heaven.

2 - Jerseys Optional.  Yep, summer can get pretty daggone hot, but last I checked the founding fathers didn't include an amendment in our constitution stating that one must wear a shirt at all times.  For those new to the idea of jerseys being optional, I suggest taking the baby step of first losing the sleeves (Give'r Tank Top).

3 - Long Days, Short Nights.  With more sunshine than any other time of year, the possibilities for adventure are unlimited.  It means more time on the water, the trail, the boat or wherever you get your kicks.  The summer solstice isn't a bad excuse to have a good time either.  Give'r.

4 - Jean Shorts.  Short or long, custom or pre-cut, you can't go wrong.  Jorts are no accident, and I hope that you enjoy sporting yours this summer season.

5 - Watersports.  Kayaking, waterskiing, tubing (below picture courtesy of Weston Humann), canoeing, paddle boarding, surfing, wakeboarding, whitewater rafting, windsurfing or simply throwing down some doggy paddle in a lake, life is good when hanging in/around/on the water when the temps exceed 23 centigrade.

That is all for now, but I know the list could go on forever.  If you have a favorite summer activity that you'd like to share with us, please send me your description at for a chance to receive a croakie/sunglass combo on the house.  And should your summer adventure list require any accessories or light layers, look no further.  Give'r has got you covered.

Long live summer,
Hugh Bette
