Hot, Hot, Hot

No, not the song by Buster Poindexeter (aka David Johansen), but the weather. We had 100+ heat indexes yesterday, just in tome for a mid-afternoon, little league double header! Making up a few of the rainouts from the past few weeks. Nothing like being out in the sun from 1 - 4:30 on the hottest day of the year. At least we (the parents) didn't have to run around as much as the kids!! As assitant coach I tried to keep the kids as hydrated as possible, passing out ice cubes between innings and reminding the constantly to drink water.



But the kids hung tough, played well, and nobody got heat stroke. They even seemed to have fun, though they were all slowing down noticably toward the end.



They play again tonight at 6pm, their 4th game just over 48 hours. This is the closest I could find to a "HOT" photo, something from a couple of years ago. Too bad we didn't have a fountain like that at the ballpark!

Flat!

6+ miles and 37+ minutes from home, and a blowout. I was just getting into a groove. Oh well, that's what I get for riding on one of the older, unpaved, bike trails.....

Thank goodness for cell phones. And I was less than 1/2 mile from a parking lot where my wife was able to rescue me....

Random Thought For A Tuesday Early Evening....

Bluegrass harmonies make me smile….. Figured I needed to share that with y’all…. Inspired by Lonesome Standard Time, which provided the soundtrack for today’s commute. Aside: I saw these guys in a small Nashville bar a few years ago, it doesn’t get too much better than that.

Random Thought for a Tuesday Afternoon


I suppose it is better to define curiosity than to defy curiosity.... Just don't deny curiosity.
Or despise it... or decry, or deride it.

I dunno.... I can't decide
