Monday Musings - June 12, 2017


My New/Used Truck at the Dealer
1. The weather is finally getting to be summer-like. Highs in the 90's and lows in the high 60's or low 70's. 

2. I found a replacement for my truck. It is a 2016 Dodge Ram Big Horn. I take possession of it tomorrow!

3. My 2000 GMC Sonoma has been a faithful servant for the past 10 plus years. I will be sad to see it leave, but the time has come. 

Jackson and Me after the Game

4. A long, rain filled GORC Intramural U10 baseball season ended yesterday with a playoff loss for the Dodgers. Jax and the team were devastated  not at the loss but at the way it ended with the umpire making two bad call for two outs in the bottom of the last inning which deprived the team of the comeback they were serving up. 

5. One of the kids on my baseball team asked me if my puka shell necklace was candy. 

6. The deck staining job continues to grow. Now, because the colors don't match, we have to do all the rails balusters. 

7. The pool is fantastic, especially on a hot summer-like day. Why does winter even need to arrive and spoil my outdoor days.

8. The cicadas have disappeared. I wonder where they went but there was no excessive noise yesterday. 

9. The Penguins win the Stanley Cup for the second straight year!

Quote for the Week


"You all knew that some things are worth dying for. One's country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man."
