Write about what you know, someone famous once advised. As I do have a nodding (and drooling) acquaintance with naps, and since FlagsRUs has some adorable flags featuring napping pets for both spring and summer like the "Do not disturb" flag above, I thought it would be appropriate to canvas napping as we dream of the soon-to-arrive lazy days of summer.
It's satisfying working in the bright sun, watching the crop progress by the day, irrigating it, weeding it, putting sulfur dust on the young silks to thwart earworms, and seeing the corn tassel. It was all fun, educational, and rewarding for two teenagers who hardly knew each other. Corn wasn’t the only thing that developed in that field that summer—Craig and I became life-long friends.
