Summertime
Summertime: A Cosmic Love Story | S. v. Cooper
56 posts | 1 to read
This is the true story about my own personal experience of an encounter with an "Unidentified Flying Object" and its occupants. The event occurred in 1962 at the home of some friends I was visiting. When I arrived, they were observing a spacecraft hovering low in the sky above their yard. While my friends ran and hid I was compelled by an overwhelming curiosity to get a better look. I walked right up directly beneath the craft, where subsequently I was taken aboard.That was the beginning of my year-long sojourn with these off-world human "visitors" that eventually led me to the heart of the Galactic Empire. This adventure of a lifetime was and still is beyond my wildest dreams and my most treasured memory. Summertime is also a tale of romance and intrigue; above all it is a human story.I have related the true events in my story as they actually happened. I have added no embellishments nor any other inventions to make my story more interesting; none were needed.

IamIamIam @Cinfhen Thanks!!! Clearly reading won over laundry 😂😂😂 I only have 3 prompts left for Autumn too, but I know how hectic things get for us after September so I'm glad I banged half of them out along the way! 2mo
Palimpsest I love the movie A Patch of Blue and didn‘t realize it was based on a book, although so many great movies are. 😊 2mo

Completed my 6 books for #booked2019 summer. Went with a kids‘ book for the graphic novel...I still find this to be a challenging category for me to enjoy. I do recommend this series for middle grade readers. Absolutely loved Miracle Creek. @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

BarbaraTheBibliophage Grrrreeat job! 📚♥️👊🏻 3mo
Cinfhen I‘m not really a fan of the GN either but it‘s always good to try something new from time to time xx Great job on completing your prompts!!! 3mo
Blaire @Cinfhen yep. It‘s good to get out of my typical genres and my son loves graphic novels and it is more fun for me when I see his excitement. 3mo

The last couple of months have been a bit stressful and there's been too many things not going as planned so I've been taking a break from social media but now we're on our summer vacation and I'm feeling a bit more relaxed. We've just been on a city break to Bruges with the beautiful houses and lovely canals but now we're home and I have lots of time to read some books.
Next I need to update some of my challenges I've neglected the last months 😊

Susanita I loved Bruges! So picturesque! 3mo

Congrats @Crazeedi on 50k! 🎉🎉🎉
My favorite summer memory is the year of The Great Video Game Tournament. My 2 sisters, parents, 2 uncles, and me spent the summer swimming in the pool and having an Atari tournament. We had leaderboards posted on the fridge. I won Superman and skiing. We also played Kaboom and bowling.

monalyisha Thanks for filling it out/sharing! I definitely think simple bookmarks are best. Although, I do really like Bookdarts. Also, 100% yes to American Gods. We stopped watching the t.v. show, though (not intentionally; we just kinda fell off the wagon & reverted to watching old episodes of King of the Hill 😅. But it's one of my Favorite Books).

This was the sunset over Lake Michigan—it was the last day of our vacation last week. Pictures like these are like little nuggets of zen. 😊 Somehow, even though it is summer, I feel like I have had LESS time to be on Litsy. So—-fair warning, I will be posting a lot today so I can hopefully get caught up!

Ice and snow to heat humid 😳🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️
Sticky dew points in the week ahead mean highs will likely feel hotter than 90, even if the actual high technically lands at 89.

@HowJessReads

I know it's not a book, but it does remind me of summer. This is the town hall where the streets seem a bit more country and there is a lot of space for walking during the summer. Plus this is the only place in my town where PokemonGo works, one of the reasons I stopped playing. Also, this is just a few minutes walk from the library!
