Pat Shingleton: Thanks a lot Doug
As noted in Sunday's column, heat waves initiated cool-downs. Years ago, the inflatable pool was "shot-up" by Doug Kelly's B.B. gun. Mom instructed us to fill the wash tub with cold water and stick my brother Kevin in there for a few days. He enjoyed it even though his lips were purple. Once Dale and Thelma Lutz built a swimming pool, they invited the entire neighborhood to seek relief. Brother Mike would drop a Baby Ruth bar in to "clear the pool." When my wife and I visit Rainbow Delights on North Harrell's Ferry, inevitably, I get a "brain-freeze." It also happened to Kevin at J and T Custard Stand where the Krebs family delivered an ice-cream beyond compare. Kevin kept cool during the summer months with purple lips and a headache.
