It’s summer time

 Just love this video, “It’s Summertime” and I try to play it every year to set the mood for a happy summer.  Well it has started.  The Great American Raft Race is scheduled for our long 4th of July weekend.  It is a long one this year.  The song was also my inspiration for doing the visuals for the song “Feels Like Home to Me”

a ha, a sneaky look at one of our competitors

It started as a long distance collaboration, I had these awesome  photos and Mel and Vinnie had this song .  I thought would be a great background just  like “In the Summer Time” by Mungo Jerry.  So I contacted them up north and said what do you think?  Got a why not answer so I went ahead and tried my best to match up words to music.  Of course that was way beyond me.

Once Mel and Vinnie returned we sat down, Vinnie with his expert knowledge of music cords and most important timing. A few changes  to include  other photos like the stills..  The video known as Lake Worth Anthem was created.  The  music will, and the time,   the photos record a time in Lake Worth that has already changed ( one for the history books lol). Lake Worth has passed it’s hundred year mark.  The kids in the surfer pix are grown with kids of their own.  No more Havana hideout,  The lovely garden interior where the neighbors gathered for impromptu dinners is gone,  sold. (thanks Paul and Mike) The memories linger.  All of us who appear in this are somewhat  older,  plus  some have moved on.  The song by our Lake Worth troubadours lives..
