MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Monday morning on the deck – July 25th

It’s July 25th and the countdown to age 58, engaging the start of my 59th year is exactly two months away.

The morning is damp, owing to yesterday’s brief soaking, and the air feels heavy with 95% humidity. The skies look as if they’ll unleash rain at any moment but my weather radar and other predictions indicate there to be no rain heading our way. We shall see. It’s only to reach 81 degrees today so that will be nice.

I thought I had the gut issues resolved but the situation is revisiting.

It’s a fairly quiet morning on the deck with the usual sounds of a few birds, traffic from the Shroyer side of the house, and dogs occasionally taking a break from reclining to visiting the fence as dogs and their walkers pass by.

Sunday, I took my two usual buses to the park to watch the old-time baseball team, The Clodbusters, take to the field but they had canceled the previous night without any posts from them or the park. I was a bit aggravated having made the trek there only to be saddled with a ninety-minute wait before the returning buses to The Haasienda. I sat inside the Deeds Barn and half watched the video, over and over, and enjoyed the air conditioning.

I returned home, fed the pooches, and by 4:30 PM I was on northbound Bus 17 to one of my regular haunts in North Dayton. After dinner, I walked to Walmart and grabbed a few items I had not needed, or forgotten with my week’s earlier delivery. Returning home, I worked for a bit and called it an early night by 10 PM.

Today I will teach until late in the evening, hopefully accomplishing much research and note-taking beforehand. Other than that, it’s a mild day of activity.

Make it a great day.
