On Sleeping Dogs

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. What did you do? Did the weather cooperated by providing a chance to see the Super Moon? We had hot and muggy, and late afternoon Sunday delivered storms and needed rain … which also means a few days ahead will be uncharacteristic fall-like conditions.

My wife went away for the weekend with her sister and dad to visit our niece, who is doing an internship in Michigan. Correct, I was never invited. Nonetheless, I stayed busy with an evening of ballroom (it’s good to dance with others), many hours with hoses and watering, hosted a friend for dinner before we went to my brewer neighbor, attended a British car show, watched baseball, and even prepared the next Saturday Morning Cartoon post.

The majority of cars at the British car show were vintage … that is from the 1970s and earlier. You know the names: MG, Rolls Royce, Austin Heeley, Jaguar, Triumph, Mini Cooper, Morgan, Sunbeam, Lotus, and a few others. Plus, attending was a good way to support two friends in that club.

Thanks for the many inquiries about my eye. Although the problem still exists, the retina specialist saw vast improvement – that is, the differences he sees in my eye over 4-5 weeks usually takes 2-3 months … so we will continue doing what we’ve been doing  – nothing.  I visit my primary physician on Monday for additional consultation.

On Satire Bits: Vol. 64

Happy Yellow Pig Day!

Yep, this is the day (Wednesday) to celebrate everything and anything 17. Now some of you may be wondering why I didn’t do a post on 17, after all, I like posts about numbers … and the answer is simple, I have already done one (here)!

Hot and muggy has dug in again into much of the eastern part of the US …. and I hate this kind of weather. However, I (with help from a friend) was able to get much of the deck stained this morning … but golf was grueling today.

Oh well, on to the mid-week dose of satire from The Onion to rejuvenate the week. Any favorites? For those enjoying a challenge, use the info in these headlines to create your original headline. Mine is at the end. Have a good rest of the week.
