The Way I See It
The weather in early May has been so cool in Rehoboth, I almost forgot that this is the Memorial Day issue of Letters from CAMP Rehoboth—even though it actually hits newsstands a week before the holiday. None of that really matters, however, because the important point here is that a brand new summer season is now underway, so welcome to summer 2017!
In Brief - News and Notes
The 2017 CAMP Rehoboth Membership Drive is underway, and the “I joined CAMP Rehoboth because...” campaign continues. This week Marc Messner celebrates the T in LGBT diversity!
You have to be a real music aficionado to recognize the heading for today’s column as the title of a mid-13th century round —perhaps the oldest surviving example of counterpoint. It’s also an excellent example of how our language has morphed —“Sumer is icumen in, Lhude sing cuccu!” which translates to “Summer has come in, Loudly sing, Cuckoo!” Later in the piece, the author celebrates other notable activities associated with the advent of summer—“The ewe bleats after the lamb, the cow lows after the calf, the bullock stirs, the stag farts…” It was a simpler time. As we approach the summer here at the beach we have much to celebrate, though hopefully none of it will involve flatulent stags. Be warned, gentle readers! The entries below do include references to sex, vaginas, and two mermaids. Not that anything in that trio (quartet?) is particularly notable or even remarkable if you’ve lived through a summer or two here. All locations are Rehoboth Beach, unless otherwise noted.
