I stop and think back, “How did we ever stand the heat when I was growing up? How did we stay cool?”

We had no air conditioning, very few fans, no swimming pool, plus, my mama made me wear goofy dresses.

I do believe that when you are young, the heat doesn’t seem to bother you as much. In fact, we would all play outdoors from early morning till sun down. We ran barefoot through the grass, stepped on bees, fell and skinned our knees, but I never once recall it being “too hot” to play outdoors.
