MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Monday… whew!

It is not the most comfortable setting outside on the deck. The humidity is 97% and will remain in the 90%s through most of the morning. While the temperature is 74 degrees and a nice breeze circulates around the outer perimeter of The Haasienda, the humidity maintains a high level of discomfort. I am planning to move into my study upon submitting this blog post.

A semi-busy week lies ahead but really, compared to years passed, my schedule is pretty flimsy looking. Two shifts at the park and Tuesday evening will conclude lessons until Sunday, August 21st when the academic year schedule commences.

A few stragglers on the wisteria have surprised me by popping out ahead of or behind schedule with the others.

I am still in awe and quite proud of how my hometown and surrounding communities paid tribute to Elwood Police Department officer, Noah Shahvanaz, who was murdered a week ago during a regular traffic stop. My community stepped up to the plate and performed remarkably with tributes, fundraisers, and a meaningful commemoration as the funeral procession moved up from Fishers, Indiana, near Indianapolis, through Elwood for his final salute before his internment at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis. I know it must have been tiring for the family to travel an additional 80+ miles round trip, but how touching it must have been to see the tributes in honor of Noah.

One tribute was especially touching to me and it was from the Bodenhorn Family from near Lapel, Indiana. Their tractors lined up with American flags was quite a touching sight.

A fitting tribute from the Bodenhorn-Parkison family.

It’s muggy as hell and I am moving inside to continue with my morning. Make it a great day!
