Looks like a wrap for the summer season. I was hoping for another warm stretch but I’m just not seeing it. So the lifeguard chairs are all stored and the boats wrapped. I’m reflecting and smiling because I got to enjoy the shore a few times this year.

Who knows, maybe an off-season trip. Those are nice sometimes. You can still enjoy the outside on a sunny day and the beach is always there for walks. The last time I got in the water this year was October 4th. It will be another 8 months till it warms back up. Burr, what a chilling thought.

So what madness can I get into this fine but wet Sunday morning? I could rant about the late Saturday night drive home from watching my grandson. But that would send me back into a state of disbelief that I’d like to forget some drivers I saw who shouldn’t have a license.

I thought as I was sitting here listening to some music that I would pick a favorite tune and send that video to the kids and some background on why it’s important to me and what I find special about it. I’m going to do that weekly till I run out of music to send them which will be never. I would be doing them a disservice if I didn’t show them real music.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Thank goodness for headphones. My family would have lost years of sleep if not for them.
  • Ah, the sun returns. What a warm feeling.
  • This is an exercise in exercising my initiative.
  • I haven’t played ping pong in years. I miss it.
  • Feeling like I’m going to accomplish a lot today.
