I have quite a few favorite summer memories as a kid growing up in Georgia -- like catching fireflies near dusk, fishing on the lake by our house, throwing the frisbee in the middle of the 9th fairway, spending full days at the pool, and drinking lots and lots of koolaid, but none of them revolve around sweet summer cherries.
