May is feeling more like July....
We got started at 1pm and were done before 4:30, I was home by 5 downing a few cold ones....with the temperatures reaching near 90 degrees, can you blame me? After a warm winter, a hot March, a windy, but dry April, May has, for the most part, a feel of July...who knows what it will feel line when Summer actually arrives? But for now, things are dry, bone dry, the fields look stressed, as does my garden, as the plants and flowers make their effort to pop through the dry, hard, soil seem fruitless. Ohio it seems cannot hit the happy medium, seldom do we have a seasonal season with enough rain, it's always, so I often notice, either too cold, too wet, or as is the case this Spring, too hot and dry....not that I mind the warm weather, but we could use some rain. Today they are saying 40% chance of storms, but the radar is clear as a bell at this hour, and if it doesn't rain today or tonight, it may be another week of hot and dry before our next chance.
Spring Baseball....finished for PRH
Patricia and I may be taking my sister Kelly, who is staying with us for another week or so, through Memorial Day, to far upstate New York, where her husband/Chef Mike is getting ready to take care and the start up of a resort/marina food operation for the summer months....that would come right after the holiday weekend. Then I will run over to Kokomo for a day or two for the mini reunion of Vietnam Veterans, this is the prequel to the big September bash...ACME Summer Baseball begins that Saturday as the State High School season finishes up....then the next weekend Sam finishes up his work at The Ohio State University in Columbus...he will receive his BS in Actuarial Science on June 10th....a Sunday.
