I tossed on some shorts, shoes, and a t-shirt, and headed out towards the West Bank of Grand Lake St. Marys, to see what kind of sunrise photos I could muster from the point and shoot Nikon. I snapped about 20 or maybe 25 photos, nothing special came out...I have done better, done worse, but since the sun was just rising above a small bank of clouds when I arrived, I didn't have time to plot or even think about what kind of shots I wanted to take. A couple however, are included on today's blog.
One thing I did notice was the morning was delightfully cool, as compared to last week...the humidity had not set in which belies what we will have in store for this afternoon...91 is set for today, well above the normal for mid July, but still at least 10 degrees cooler, and much less humid than it was this time last week....hopefully the days of triple digit heat are but a bad memory for the rest of this summer.
I had promised myself to cut my posting back to only a few times a week, and only if I had something worthwhile, in my own mind, to write about....so here goes:
Things I Dislike____and what to do about them!
Among other things I would like to avoid if all all possible...realizing you can never say never.
After my retirement from the health department and I took up RV delivery, I had to return fly at least weekly to Dayton or some other nearby airport, and while Dayton was nice enough, the flights out, whether it be from Vegas, Tampa, or LA, were like the the modern version of a Greyhound Bus Terminal.
Few people have class when flying these days....smelly, fat, loud, rude...and that's just the passengers. Between the aging Stewardesses and the flaming gay male Stewards, many with attitudes, flying sucks in the 21st century. So I will attempt to avoid it and drive...at least, as dangerous as it is, I'm in my own element.
OK...those are a few things that I dislike these days....and despite my best efforts, the list seems to grow with aging.
(1) A Sunrise this morning made Grand Lake look much better than the water quality does...the lake is pretty quiet this July...few boats, no swimmers, and very little fishing, going on....as you can see from the final photo(5), taken yesterday. (2) Kasyn, the grandson approaching 8 months, is growing up fast...(3) Not many flowers due to the heat and dry this Summer, but once in awhile one, like this yellow beauty, pops up.(4) Flying these days is certainly not what it was back in 1969 when I flew Braniff to beautiful Saigon Vietnam.
