Green and Sweaty

As dry as it's been the last couple of weeks, the green corn would probably be brown.  Still, it's the time of year when the old timers built the brush arbors.  Nobody does it any more.  The last one I remember seeing was over on Westwood Drive, north of Highway 80.  

Air conditioning all but eliminated outdoor activities in the summer in the south.  After the brush arbors, I remember seeing tents a time or two.  It's probably been over a decade since I've seen one of those.

We've probably lost something important.  I don't know what it was, but sweating ain't it, though.  No one remembers anything important, anymore.
