2013- The Summer Of Barry Manilow

When I was growing up, there were two things that I realized about the world when I reached high school.  Number one was never to admit that you liked disco.

That wasn't too hard, although there were some disco songs that I like.  And I still to this day love the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

Number two was never to admit that you liked Barry Manilow.

Which was actually quite hard to do, especially when you did.  He had a number of very catchy tunes.  He was also all over the place on my favorite radio station, WLS. So you couldn't miss him.

So what does all this have to do with this summer? 

Well, I thought it was phenomenal that, until August 23rd of this year, due to the abundance of rain, I did not once have to water my yard.

In fact, It's A Miracle!  And whenever I think those words to myself, only this pops into my mind.
