       FOR many of our readers, it’s summertime. The mornings are filled with bird song and the evenings with a chorus of frogs, croaking their merry, muddy tunes. It’s a welcome time of year full of color, joy, rest and playful- ness.  In that spirit, we share our summer issue with playful pens and smiles. Happy summer!  —Mrs.Chips
