Monday Musings - May 28, 2018


1. Happy Memorial Day 2018.


Rain Falling 
2. We survived the deluge which by some accounts saw 8.5 inches of rain fall in two hours yesterday. Officially we only received just over an inch of rain although it certainly seemed like a lot more. We will begin the clean-up process today. Thanks to all who wrote/called with concerns.
Enjoying Big Cork Vineyards

3. Chris and I accompanied by two friends spent a wonderful afternoon at Big Cork Vineyards in Rohrersville, MD. We enjoyed music and some nice wines in a beautiful setting.


4. Our prayers and support go out for the people of Ellicott City who yesterday experienced a second devastating flood in less than two years as as a result of the torrential rains.

5. Memorial Day isn't just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that's a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It's a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. - Pete Hegseth

6. It is tough to play baseball after being off for two weeks. The GORC Dodgers lost in a blow-out on Friday night. There are two games remaining in the regular season and then the playoffs begin next week.

7. I am glad that I mowed the lawn yesterday before the rains turned the yard into a soggy mess.
