MIAGD: Thursday is here

MIAGD: Make it a great day

I don’t mind the cooler 67-degree temperature this morning but the dampness from an apparent rain shower throughout the night has everything damp.

It’s very quiet on the deck. There’s the familiar, practically unheard sounds of construction on the new high school auditorium, next door, but the morning traffic is sparse, much like the singing birds. A mourning dove is cooing in the distance.

On this date, August 9, 1974, I was vacationing in Myrtle Beach with my parents but up bright and early to watch the farewell speech of resigning President Richard Nixon and the swearing in of Vice-President Gerald Ford who I had just met a week and a half before on the steps of The United States Capitol Building with our congressional representative, Elwood “Bud” Hillis. Having eagerly followed The Watergate Hearings on television, this was a huge day for me.

A busy day ahead:

  • Endocrinologist appointment
  • Shopping and errands
  • Work on some major projects
  • Attend the premiere concert at the new Levitt Pavilion, downtown
  • Yesterday was extremely satisfying due to my productiveness. I treated myself to 2.5 hours at Riverscape. A quick moving thunderstorm removed me from my favorite swing but I worked from a table beneath the shelter of the massive white tent used for concerts, gatherings, and other events. I still had a great view of the river and the ever changing sky.
  • It’s 7:35 AM and must be moving along. Join me in making it a great day.
