Light blogging…

Not that I’m a heavy blogger, of course, but blogging will be light as I work on the heritage association newsletter and the presentation I’m going to give on the history of downtown Oswego April 19.

But just for fun, as the weather continues to warm up and iced tea lovers begin craving their favorite drink, here’s a fun fact from the Aug. 15, 1872 Kendall County Record. It’s aimed at all of you who think iced tea is some sort of modern idea:

Iced tea is now in season. It is very nice and appropriate served at evening croquet parties, and it will also be found refreshing and gently invigorating at the dinner hour. Those in the habit of using it assert that no drowsiness follows its use in hot weather, and it is therefore invaluable to people of sedentary occupation and habits.
