July! Celebrate, Independence, Summertime
Scene: Lake Ontario
It's going to be steamin' hot today . . .
Trying to get things done this morning before the sun turns up the heat and humidity . . . Yesterday, a perfect summer day, However, we need rain in Hamlin, NY. The lawns are starting to burn out to straw, which is a typical sight in August. Everything is happening several weeks ahead of time. The cornfields are so tall. Thigh to hip high, not the expected knee-high. And, I bet some people will have ready to pick tomatoes in their gardens soon. Oh, the glories of summer. . .
Went to a Red Wings game last night. Such fun! The Wings won, but the ending had a bit of drama. Bases loaded with two outs. If the pitch hitter had connected, we would have seen the game tie and possibly switch lead. The suspense! Everyone cheered. The fourth inning was equally exciting. The Wings scored six runs. The Pawtucket pitching was all over the place. I think they put in five pitchers over the course of the game.
We're suppose to go to see a band at the Public Market tonight, but if the heat gets to the temperature of frying an egg on the sidewalk, I'm not sure if we'll be venturing out . . .
Summer session is over and I submitted the grades yesterday! This month will be a mix of work and play.
Always, Upstream . . .
