Monday Musings - July 17, 2017


Palm Trees Before the Storm

1. It is hard to believe that more than half of July is complete! Summer is running away. 

2. The Orioles at the mid-season turn have become a major disappointment. They surrendered 27 runs in three games while scoring 11, but 8 of the 11 were in one game. The team lacks pitching and batting! Changes must be made!

3. Sitting around the pool on a hot, Sunday afternoon is not the same as being in the pool.

4. Getting back into the swing of life is hard after being away for two glorious weeks.

5. Is it easier to watch kids or dogs while their parents/owners are away?

6. With the Orioles collapsing, did I mention that the NFL resumes in a few short weeks? Unfortunately, the Ravens do not look to be contenders either.

7. Three boys and three dogs equals chaos.
