A small stretch of fall like weather continued this morning...low of about 45 under clear skies. Got my game in at Eastview Park here in Celina last night...a 1 hours 40 minute 5-0 shutout for the Celina home squad over Parkway in Varsity ACME action. Sam was at Lima Shawnee for a Shawnee-Defiance double header, he didn't finish until 10:30 or so. Tonight we work together at Celina for a game with Van Wert in Junior ACME action. Tomorrow I'm at Lima Bath and Sam is at Parkway, both with double headers.
A Family Tree Comes Down_____
Dad and Mom bought the house on Cherry Street as I was finishing up my Air Force days, in the early 1970s....I think they moved in around January 1971 to be exact. The house had been built in 1915 or so, and had several large Maple Trees in the yard. One in particular was huge, and continued to grow strong until a few years ago when Mom had it trimmed. It finally became a concern this past winter, as the bark begin to separate and the larger limbs began to fall....it was time for this century old shade maker to come down. I'm sure she is not happy about it, and the shade will be gone forever, plus a few dozen a squirrels have lost their home and safe haven from the neighborhood cats.
Always hate to see historic or nice personal shade trees come down....but better this way than a large limb or part of the tree crashing through the roof, or the neighbors roof.
The dry weather will continue...for a day or so___
Sunshine and 74 today, 80 tomorrow, then the unwelcome wet weather will return...we have had more than enough rain to last until July....but it appears we are in for more next week.
Hal purchased a new car, or almost new. A 2006 Ford Fusion with only 6800 miles on it...seems a Little Old Lady from Pasadena owned the Red Fusion, and he got it for a good price....With less than 10 thousand miles on it, this thing has not had a chance to be broken in yet. I'm glad he took my advice and did not get a Chrysler or GM Car....as I've stated before, no more Government Motors vehicles with Obama as the CEO for this family. As far as I'm concerned, Ford is the last American car maker. Now Hal needs to find a post Masters Degree job to pay the payments.....
Enjoy the weekend.
