Rambling Thoughts for a Late Summer's Day
Summer enters it's final month, and I would usually say that this makes me sad...however, with the heat returning after 3 nice and less humid days, I cannot say with any honesty that I will miss the passing of this summer and it's weather...way too humid to really enjoy most of the activity out-of-doors.
Of course there is sports, especially the Cincinnati Reds and the run they are on....another come-from-behind win in Arizona last night has pushed my favorite team 3 games ahead of the perennial division champions, The St. Louis Cardinals. Still a long way to go, but the upstart Redlegs have at least kept their fans interested in the games...usually by this time of the year, we have completely tuned them out, and are waiting for the NFL and NCAA Football seasons to start....not this year though, the Reds are keeping us entertained.
So politics, sports, and hot weather, are in the forecast for the foreseeable future....along with a good colletion of decent hand rolled cigars, and looking forward to the fall beer collection, as they roll out in a month or so....I am ready for Fall!
But tonight I head for St. Henry, and work a scrimmage to begin my football season, just in time for the hot weather's return...tomorrow back at it here in Celina, for a Freshman Scrimmage....then next week it begins in full, including High School, Junior High, and Recreational League games.
I went out and checked the Sunflowers earlier, and the bees are doing their thing on them....I will grow more next year, unless the entire economy tanks(which it has a pretty good chance of doing), and I have to plant all food to keep on the table.
Enough Rambling for today...
