Prompt for the Day: “Summer”

The obvious thinking people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Summer” for us to base our artristic works for the first meteorological day of summer in the U.S.A..

Music came to Mind First

First song that popped in my head comes from a favourite show of mine Grease “Summer Nights“.  There are many more popular summer songs.  “Summertime” by Billy Stewart back in 1966.  “Cruel Summer” by Bananarama in 1983.  “Summertime Blues” by Eddie Cochran back in 1958.  The “Summer Song” featuring Chad & Jeremy in 1964.  “Summer Breeze” from Seals and Crofts from 1972.  Who can forget Nat King Cole’s “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer” in 1963?

Summer” by War was released in 1976.  Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” was released in 1984.  “Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams in 1985 is a personal favourite of mine.  After that came Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” in 1984.  Then came the “Endless Summer Nights” by Richard Marx in 1988.  “Summer Girls” came out 1999 by LFO.

More recently, there is “Summer Love” by Justin Timberlake in 2007.

Personal Thoughts on Summer

I hate it!  The constant heat saps my energy down to nothing.  Wake up sweating even though the house is completely air conditioned.  With out the air conditioning, I would be experiencing continuous grand mal seizures that my medical staff are at a loss to reproduce or fully explain!  Apparently, the multiple sclerosis that I suffer from is causing it somehow. Their only suggestion is to remain inside as much as I can.

How am I supposed to get out if for nothing else than to arrive at their facilities for my scheduled appointments?  Have to go outside to check on the tomatoes my husband and I planted in May.

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
