The Stella d'Oros have reached their peak for
blooming this early summer. It is so very hot and
dry right now. The temp tomorrow is supposed
to reach 106!! How we will survive July and
August if this keeps up, I don't know.
Chicory, a wildflower that grows in the fields and along side the roads.
The heat may slow me down, but it doesn't
slow down the march of time. I ask this question
quite often lately...where do the days go?
This month will soon be over.
But, before it ends we have a birthday to
celebrate! Our son will celebrate 35 years
in a few days.
He will be home for his birthday and will
bring his pup, Marley, with him. It should
be interesting with 2 kitties that are still
getting acquainted! I hope we can keep things
calm. Our son travels a lot and
puts in long hours and needs some R and R
every chance he gets.
It wasn't too many years ago, or so it seems, that we
were going to baseball games in the heat of the summer.
Our son was a pitcher and played first base and
occasionally other positions. He was quite good at
pitching, as was his dad in his heyday. I'll never
forget one particular game that he pitched a no-hitter.
It was exciting...he pitched the whole game
and it was against a team from a much larger town.
We are looking forward to sharing his birthday
with him. He is a lot of fun to be around as well
as just being an all-around good guy and a
wonderful son! We love him very much!
Happy Birthday, Brett!!
I will be taking a blog break for a few days.
Enjoy the rest of the week and weekend!!
Until next time...
