When I was 10 years old my mother had just had a baby. I wanted to buy a gift for my new little brother. I had this idea of selling lemonade. I bought my little brother some baby shoes with the money I made. This was in the 60s a somewhat carefree, innocent time in upstate New York. Fifty years later I am still selling lemonade at the New York State Fair. the times are quite different. You look at our surroundings and the world were living in today and you see that things are somewhat bittersweet. Were living in a very chaotic time. Maybe a glass of refreshing lemonade can bring that old feeling back--momentarily.

I sold lemonade
Back when times were innocent
And not bittersweet
