Monday Musings - June 5, 2017




Putting on the Decking
June 4, 2017
1. June arrived during the past week and the temperatures are finally beginning to become more summer like.

2. Rebuilding a deck on someone's house has become the modern version of a barn raising. Friends, family, and neighbors show up to help encouraged by copious amounts of food and drink. 

3. Patrick and Tina are rebuilding their deck and I enjoyed helping them this weekend.

4. Give a cat a ball and watch the fun begin. Chris and I watched Riordin play with a tennis ball for a very long time. At one point he thought he was a soccer player.

5. The pool is becoming more inviting as the temperatures climb to the 80's. 

6. Is it just me, or are drivers in the highways becoming more aggressive and less considerate?

7. My truck developed a major problem yesterday. It is just shy of 180,000 miles and it may be time to say good-bye and replace it.

Quote for the Week


"Sometimes when I'm faced with an unbeliever, an atheist, I am tempted to invite him to the greatest gourmet dinner that one could ever serve and, when we finished eating that magnificent dinner, to ask him if he believes there's a cook."
