TDoL Summer Mix 2012

Yesterday was the longest day of the year, and I can finally say summer weather finally hit Portland like an electric blanket on a tanning bed. I think it got up into the upper 80s …

More important, it signified the first day of summer. It’s interesting how change in weather—the heat, in particular—immediately conjures up memories of family vacations, my brothers and me in the back seat wreaking havoc; playing baseball in the 115-degree heat, a bucket of Kool-Aid the only thing saving you from heat stroke; floating down the river getting well-done on one side; roadtrips with the windows open, a cold (non-alcoholic) beverage in the cup holder and some well-chosen noises coming from the speakers.

The TDoL Summer Mix 2012 is all about those memories—bringing together old and new, the obscure and the well-seasoned—all with the one goal of offering a little relief for what ails you.
