1. A beach weekend cures all ills. 

Sign in Ocean City, MD
2. Playing golf yesterday, we had to fight off the crabs to play one of the greens. They were small and we were careful not to hurt any of them.

3. Prepare for the eclipse! It is coming to a town near you, today!

4. Out of context, this would be a strange sign and combination. In Ocean City, MD, however, anything goes it seems.

5. We in Maryland do love the idea of our State Flag. It adorns so many different things.

6. August seems to be rocketing by--Labor Day is just two weeks away!

7. There is something magnificent in the power of a thunderstorm.

8. Dawn comes too early some mornings.

9. I wonder how big the traffic jams will be today on major highways that the total eclipse passes over? I'm glad that I am not traveling.

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week


"If excellence is one pillar of the agenda for opportunity, equality is another, and it's just as important -- equality of rights, treatment, and protection under the law. We want every American to participate fully in society on the basis of individual merit, regardless of race, sex, or national origin. I reaffirm today our unshakable commitment to eliminate discrimination against blacks, women, the handicapped, and other minorities. And let me add, this is not just our legal commitment; it is also our moral commitment. "
