Another Hot Day? Sunny and 82 Degrees at 10 a.m. Then headind to 91 and Sunny
Well it is July you know, gets hot now and then until about September

Well not enough going on down on the River yesterday to take a Video, except for the Clouds
Big dark ones mixed in with bright white ones and a few drops of rain now and then
Does anyone else watch the Clouds in the Sky as much as I do? Have all kinds of Photos and Videos

10 a.m. and off to the Price Chopper with $65 in winners to trade in
Cashed in and then hit Machine One for my same old choices and headed Home
Then scratched and scratched and finallly won back only $5... No good luck today

~ Thursday ~ Not a lucky Day ~

~ Quiet River Trip ~
~ Another Sunny Hot One ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Wednesday and waking up from Dreams that were wearing me out
Forget just what but I think it was about writing Computer stuff

So on into another Hot Day, well it is Summer and we have to put up with that
Now 75 amd Sunny at 7 a.m. Then on to 97 Degrees but it says Rain showers
Well I am from Missouri and you have to show me, these Forecasts are wrong a lot

Up a bit early so done with my Internet runaround at 9 a.m. or so, headed out for Lottos
Cashed in a $15 Win, headed to Machine Two for my daily Dose and back in that warming Day
Then back to scratch a $5, $5, $10, $15, $15, and another $15... Hey a win this time!

So, a profit, back to try again, Cashed in, Hit the Service Counter for my Tickets
Then back again to scratch off a $5, $20 and $40 Win, Hey! Another profit

~ Not as Nice as a $50 but not Bad ~

And then what? Still Sunny and no Rain showers... Let's go check the River Park
Quiet Downtown, Farmer's Market open in the Lot, on past a quiet Entrance Shelter
Then on down to see an empty Dog Park and Boat Ramp parking lot, just nothing going on
The Sky beautiful with high flying white Clouds and also dark Clouds passing by
A few drops of Rain on my Windshield as I headed back to the Shelter

Hiked in with my Chair and had a seat for a long watch for this and that
A few Hikers passing by, more than on my last Visit, Cars and Trucks heading down and back on the Drive
Why? I do that myself, head down to the Ramp to see what's going on and back if there is nothing much
A few do stay and park and then do whatever, Boats, Dogs or Hiking, and the Park Crew too

Now and then a Hiker would stop in for rest or a snack and maybe a chat
I gave my Parkville Web Page address to a couple Visitors after we had some chat, many are interested
I did a short Hike myself over to the old River Dock and back, just don't take long walks lately

Then all was quiet and I gave up and headed back to wind down the Day again
It was an earlier start to the River than usual and an earlier in the Afternoon departure
Home in mid-afternoon, stopped on the way in to check on that big Pot with the Geranium

~ Lots more Blooms on the Geranium ~

Then in to have Lunch and catch up with the TV News, a bit too warm for me out front then
so I just gave up for my Movie TV early and a very long Evening shut down

~ Wednesday ~ Kept Moving ~

~ Tuesday, July 11, 2023 ~
~ Home Alone ~
~ Sunny and Hot! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Buenos días amigos... ¿Cómo te va? Woke up from a Dream speaking Espanol
Oh, Sigi Wulle, if you are reading this... Then 'Guten Tag... Was ist los?'
On into a Sunny Morning and nothing to do, already did my Morning Internet runaround
And did a load of Laundry, already hung up in my Closet

So what's the Weatherman say? Yeah... Sunny and already at 80 Degrees out there
And then?... Oh No! Sunny and heading to 94! That's HOT ain't it?

Well what for the Day? Ho Hum already, same old type of Morning but I do enjoy catching up on my Blog
It's more of a record for me of what I did and when, than it is info for anyone else
I have only heard from a few that they have read anything on it so it is kind of like talking to myself

And those River Trips have begun to get a bit boring to me even though I see something new now and then
Seems this year has been less going on, but then you have to be down there at the right time
One Day last week, busy busy busy at the Boat Ramp for about a half Hour then all quiet

In and out of the Shower and off to the Price Chopper for my daily dinkies
Cashed in a $20 Win, this time Machine One was back in business so hit that one
Then over to the Shear Palace for a Haircut, then headed Home to acratch off $15 in Winners

This and that and on to 2:30 p.m. and what's there to do? Too hot to cruise to the River
Too hot out front to do any Gardening catch up, too early for an afternoon TV... BORED!

Well then a late Lunch and gave up for the TV for the rest of that long amd idle Day

~ Tuesday ~ Yeah... Not Much ~

~ Monday, July 10, 2023 ~
~ Idle River Trip ~
~ Sunny and Hot ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Monday... 'Let's get started here'... Monday, am ease off Day from the Weekend, I like it
Back when I used to head off to work at IBM it wasn't my favorite Day, back then my fun Day was Saturday

Nice weather Day on Sunday, how about today, looks good out there at 8 a.m. with Sun in my Window
Forecast says Sunny and heading to 91 Degrees... Oh Oh! Hot Day ahead again

Morning stuff done, off to the Price Chopper, hit Machine Two again for Winners
Then picked up a few Grocery Items and headed home to win a $5, $5, and $5... Not many Winners

Then some more Internet stuff, gettng bored, what to do? Well head to the River of course
All quiet Downtown and in the Lots on the way in to the River Park, a few in the Shelter
On down to the Boat Ramp and only One empty Boat Trailer in the Lot, no one in the Dog Park

~ The Crowd at the Boat Ramp ~

So back to the entrance Shelter, a few visitors in there, carried in my Chair
A Hello from a guy as I hiked in, sat and had a pleasnt chat with Him, then off down the Trail he went

Then all quiet until another guy walked over, Hello and then he began asking questions
What kind? Religious questions... HUH? Did he hear something we were talking about earlier?
Well I do happen to know something about various Religions from reading a lot about them
And after all I have read seems I am not an athiest but more of an agnostic, if you know what that is
"Agnostic: a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God." Well I was a Baptist in my Teens
But the more I read and saw the less I could believe... Anyway he talked and talked and invited me to his Church

Shook hands and he left, all quiet and then a Lady and several Girls hiked over to the River Bank
Then in the Shelter to sit and chat and and tha lady asked me questions about the River Park
So, gave her my Web Site address, then talk about Parkvile and this amd that, some nice chat

~ The Crowd at the Shelter ~

They left and that was it, all quiet for quite a while and then time for me to head Home
Nothing to report after that... Just another late lunch again and an early Evening wind dowm

~ Monday ~ Nice River Chat Trip ~

~ Sunday, July 9, 2023 ~
~ River Trip ~ No Video ~
~ Sunny and Warm ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sunday Sunday... What's to do today? Well edit that River Video from Saturday
OK but what's the Weather? Looks like Sunny and Warm again... A modest High of 84
OK, off to do my Internet runaround and then edit that Video

~ Saturday at the River Park ~

And then off to the Price Chopper for the eusual... No Winners to cash
Hit Machine Two again, Machine One out of action for three Days so far... Fix it please
Then back Home to scratch away and only win back a dinky $5, She is still hiding

Well, nothing to do at Home, not really wanting to face that Sunday Crowd at the River Park
But I headed down there anyway, as usual for Sunday the Parking Lot at the Shelter was stuffed
On down to the Boat Ramp amd again the Lot was full of empty Trailers, busiest Sunday this Year
So I just sat on my Bench and watched and chatted with Hikers here and there

More Hikers than any recent Visit, a few Boats coming and leaving, some Fishers down on the River
A gorgeous Cloudy Sky, got a sweeping Video of that, but that's all the Video I did
That big old Kayak Bus showed up with another Load but I just watched that, no Video
Then all quiet on the Ramp and I headed back to the Shelter to sit and watch with a few to chat with

Then late Afternoon, time to head for Home, and time for that very late Lunch and TV Time again
And that was about all there was for a Sunny Sunday

~ Sunday ~ Not much to Write About ~

~ Saturday, July 8, 2023 ~
~ Another River Trip ~
~ Cloudy and Cool ~ Then Sunny and Warm ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

OK, what's the Weather for Saturday? Looks cloudy out there at 10 a.m.
Yeah, Forecast says Cloudy and 68 Degrees, then heading to 80 and partly Sunny
Then a long Morning on the Internet doing what? This and that but not much of anything special
What did we do back when there was no Internet? Just read the Morning Newspaper? I guess
When did I give up that Newspaper? Been a long time now, bought my first Computer in 1985
Two Years before I retired from IBM in March of 1987... Not sure when I gave up on the Newspaper

Off to the Price Chopper for some of this and that and some more loser Lottos
Cashed in my big Winners of $5 and $2 and then some real money in Machine One for what?
Got my maybes and my stuff and headed home to scratch off NOTHING! Lady Luck is still on Vacation

That done by Noon and what's for the rest of this Cloudy and Cool Day? The Sun peeking out
Don't feel like a River trip at the moment, getting lots of that but nothing to do at Home

Then some more boring time on the Internet, the sun looking better, Let's go to the River just for the ride
On past the Shelter, nothing going on in there, on down to the Boat Ramp
And the Parking Lot was full of Boat Trailers, I counted 11 in there but no action on the River
So I headed on back to the Shelter, carried in my Chair for a seat on the Bank behind the Shelter
Then I watched a group file in to start on a BBQ Party, I asked a guy 'Where from?'
He said 'Micronesia'... Where is that anyway?

So I sat and watched, then hiked over to the old Ramp and then back to my Chair
On the way I saw that big Van with the Kayak Trailer heading to the Boat Ramp
So I headed on down there to get some Video of that and another Boat Launch
Then it was late Afternoon and I headed on back to close down the Day again as usual

Now again, I have a Video to edit tomorrow in the Morning, I'll show you tomorrow

~ Saturday ~ Busier than Expected ~

~ Friday, July 7, 2023 ~
~ Not much Action ~
~ Cloudy and a bit Cooler ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

One Week of July used up, now we do what I can still hear what my IBM Boss said in 1956
We would be idling in the Office before heading out for Service Calls...
He would walk in and say "Let's get started here"... And off we would go

So off to the Weather report... says 68 and Cloudy at 8 a.m. But some Sun peeking out
Then on to 86 Degrees but stil says mostly Cloudy and so far no plans for the Day
Except for now, pour a cuppa Coffee and start editing yesterday's River Video

Then Edited and Uploaded by 11 a.m. That one took a while trimming this and that
Kind of a cloudy Day but comfortable, a bit too windy for me again

Then off to the Price Chopper again to buy and scratch and only win back a dinky $5...
On to the rest of the Day, just no urge to head back to the River again
So some more Laundry, whatever I needed to straighten up around the place
And then out in front to sit and watch a while, then back in to the TV
Finished off the quietest Day so far this week, Ho Hum again

~ Friday ~ Quiet Day Inside ~

~ Thursday, July 6, 2023 ~
~ Down to the River Again ~
~ Warm Sunny Day ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Thursday, 8 a.m. Says 67 Degrees and mostly Cloudy... Then partly Sunny and heading to 82 Degrees
And as of the moment as usual no plans except for the usual waste of Money
Started the action for the Day with a load of Laundry, doing the Bedclothes today
Then my Internet runaroud with Crosswords and then what?

9 a.m. biggest task of the Day completed, sheets out of the Dryer and on the Bed
Next a super Shower, Shampoo and Shave and on to another fascinating Day!

Well, not yet, off to the Price Chopper again, had a free Ticket to buy another Ticket
Then cashed in my last $10 Win, over to Machine Two to try again, then back Home to scratch
Checked my free Ticket.won $3, still wait to see what else online from that, maybe...
Then $10 on a scratcher... DARN! She is still on vacation

Morning all caught up and nothing to do... So off to the River Park again
On past the Shelter, no one there, down to the Boat Ramp. several Boat Trailers but no action
So back to the Shelter, hauled in my chair to sit and wait and watch
Then more action than usual, several stopping in for a chat, a group setting up for a picnic
Then a couple Boats passing my, started getting some Video, saw one boat heading for the Ramp
Headed down to the Ramp to get some Video of that and then headed back to the Shelter to finish out the Visit

Late Afternoon then so I gave up and headed Home to finish out the busy Day
Too late to edit and post the Video I got, just save that to start the Day on Friday
So then finished up the Day the same old way

~ Thursday ~ Busy Enough ~

~ Wednesday, July 5, 2023 ~
~ Nothing Special ~
~ Cloudy Cool Damp Start ~ Sunny Afternoon ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

What's the Weather for the Day after The Day? says 73 Degrees and mostly Cloudy at 8 a.m.
Then for the rest of the Day... Forecast says T-Storms and heading to 85 Degrees
Well we had more than enough of Sun and Heat for the Holiday and I didn't go anywhere...

On through the Morning and off to the Price Chopper at 10 a.m. Cashed in $45 worth of Winners
Then over to Machine Two, dumped in my Winnings for maybes and headed back
Thrn scratched away to only win back a dinky $5 Win, Where is she Today?

Well I'll go see if she is back... Back to cash in a couple of Free Tickets and then hit Machine One
Then back to scratch away and see she hasn't returned yet, I only won back $10

OK Noon time and what to do? Says 79 Degrees and mostly Cloudy out there but now a bit of Sun peeking in
Maybe a drive to the River Park to see what's left after the Fourth

So, headed down after Noon or so, Shelter empty, down to the Boat Ramp, a couple of Trailers
Back to the Shelter to carry in my Chair and then sit and watch this and that
In came a Guy I have met before, he brings in his Lunch now and then
A bit of catch up chat and then heads back out down the Trail

Then another Hiker came in to sit and chat, always something to talk about
He rested a bit and took off down the Trail, then in came a Guy with a couple fishing Poles
We had a long talk about this and that, then he headed over to the Bank to Fish
On to the rest of a quiet Afternoon, finally another run to the Boat Ramp and back and headed Home
Then again, was late Afternoon, on to the TV Catchup and the Evening rundown

~ Wednesday ~ Quiet Day After ~

~ Tuesday, July 4, 2023 ~
~ Independence Day ~
~ Sunny and too Hot ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Happy 4th of July! Well we shall see how Happy it will be
I will hear the Parade when it passes down the Road on the way Downtown at 10 a.m.
But I won't be heading down there in the Crowd that will be waiting for it
Downtown will be crowded and they say Platte Landing Park will be closed
They will be setting up for Fireworks tonight, I haven't gone down there for that for years

On through the Morning runaround, a bit after 10 a.m. I headed out for the Price Chopper
Got there just as the last of the Parade was heading down the Road behind the store
Parked and in to the Lotto Machine Number One to donate my dues, got my Tickets
Then here and there for this and that and headed back to scratch off exactly NOTHING again!

Haven't checked the Weather Forecast, now says 89 and mostly Sunny at Noon
Then heading to a very hot High of 97 for the Day, doesn't sound comfortable

Boring Hot Day and doing nothing... Headed back to the Price Chopper to try my lack of Luck again
This time Machine Two, got my maybes and headed back to scratch off a $5, $15 and $20
Well only a $5 loss this time, have to try again Tomorrow for that big One

Back home to spend the rest of the Day inside, lots of noise outside, kids running around
Then on to Afternoon and Evening TV, then a big BOOM! Who fired that one?
On through a long Evening on my TV trying to hear with Fireworks popping outside
Then another loud BOOM! Looked out front to see a cloud of smoke next door down
That one bunch of neighbors in one Apartment made more Noise than I ever heard here in 20 Years

Then some time after 9 p.m. I heard the Downtown Fireworks start Booming
And that kept on until almost 10 p.m. But was all quiet when I gave up for bedtime

So, I did nothing, only to the Store for Lottos, least fun July 4th I can ever remember

~ Tuesday ~ Not my best Independence Day ~

~ Monday, July 3, 2023 ~
~ One More River Visit ~
~ Sunny and Hot ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Monday, Monday... We start again... I see the Sun out there again, what's the Forecast?
Hey... It's cool out there at 66 Degrees now at 8 a.m. Then Sunny and heading to 93 Hot Degrees
And at the moment I don't feel like heading down to the River today

Actually I feel OLD... And I don't like it... I do like still being here but not the old part
I was doing great up to my 89th Year and then after my 90th Birthday... all down hill
And looks like my Primary Doctor gave up on me in my 80s, they give me tests but no cures
I went to him in my 80s when I had a pain in my 'middle', and he said... 'Well maybe a colonoscopy?'
'But at your age'... Anyway I went to get that test and then they found and removed Colon Cancer
Now I have three things wrong and have had tests but no attemps at cures

10 a.m. and off to the Price Chopper, no Winners to cash in, over to Machine Two to dunp in my Dollars
Got my possibles and headed back to only scratch off a dinky $10 Win... (is that a Win?)

On to 11 a.m. All caught up and nothing to do, let's head to the River anyway
On down to the Park, no one in the Shelter, on down to the Boat Ramp and nothing going on there
So back to the Shelter, toted in my Chair to have a seat and watch some of this and that
Mostly quiet, a few hikers and bikers heading by, A small boat headed up the River, then a huge one headed down
Then here comes a guy with a Cat? Cat on the River? Never have seen one before
Then led in a Dog on a leash, then carried one in with a Cage...HUH?
Several friends came in with him, sat and talked and played with the Pets and I got Video

They left, then all quiet so I headed down to the Ramp to see a Truck headed up the Ramp
Started a Video of that, them here comes the Boat, they pack up and leave and then so do I

Late Afternoon, headed on Home to head in to edit and upload that Video
Then start my Evening rundown and finish out that sort of Fun Day again

~ Monday ~ Yeah, another River Trip ~

~ Sunday, July 2, 2023 ~
~ Video Editing Morning ~
~ Sunny and Hot Again ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well I woke up a bit early for Sunday when the Lights came on after Midnight
Had to get up and shut off all the lights that were on in every Room
Then it took a while to get back to sleep but finally made it to 6 a.m.
So, now I have Two Videos to finish editing, that River Trip and the Tree Fall episode

Well that took a while, now 11 a.m.and uploadng the River Video to Vimeo
Uploaded and ready and now here it is

Now the Weather report, a bit late, Sun in my Window all Morning, now says Sunny and 78
Then for the Day... Mostly Sunny and heading to 87 Degrees

Then on to the Tree Fall Video, that took a while... Then off to the Price Chopper
Cashed in my $55 Win, hit Machine One again,then here and there for a couple items
Back then to scratch away and again win back NOTHING! Lady Luck hiding again

And then, back out to add a couple views of the Tree Fall after the Crew left last Night
I see all they did was to cut the limbs off the fallen trunk sbove the Power Lines
Looks like that trunk could now fall anywhere near it in tha back yard

Here is the Video of the same Tree falling in 2022, what was left standing didn't look so good
Now what's left of the rest of this Tree branch looks even worse

So a long Day editing and uploading those Videos, already late aftenoon and no River Trip
Well I have already had too many this year that I didn't need

So, time to just give up and wind down for the rest of the busy inside Day

~ Sunday ~ Quiet Indoor Day ~

~ Saturday, July 1, 2023 ~
~ River Trip ~ Lights Out Early ~
~ Just another Rainy (Then Sunny) Day ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Rain Rain... Go Away! Come again another Day! Yeah I just watered out front, don't need any today
Well anyway the Forecast says 72 Degrees and mostly Cloudy, then Rain Showers and up to 83 Degrees
Wasn't planning any River Trip anyway even though it is Saturday and usually busy down there

Morning wake up finished and off in a bit of Dunshine to the Price Chopper, no Winners to cash
In to get my real Winners from Machine One and headed back, now the Clouds are back
Then Home to scratch away and win a dinky $5 and a nice fat $50 to start this Month with a Winner

~ The Way I like to Start the Month ~

On into the Afternoon and the Sun peeked out from those heavy Clouds
All caught up and nothing to do so I headed down to the River Park Again
On past the empty Shelter to the Boat Ramp to see a Boat Trailer backing down
So I parked and started taking a Video, it was Two boats leaving at the same time
They launched and sped away and I headed back to the Shelter to sit and watch

All was quiet and then here comes a lot of Cars and a crowd heading in the Shelter
I asked what's the occasion?... anther Birthday Party, I was invited yo join in
but I moved my chair our on the bank to sit and watch

~ Saturday Party in the Shelter ~

Got some Video of the Party,then the Afternoon wound down and I headed for Home
Uploaded my Video to my Computer to edit Tomorrow, then started my Evening runddown

Watching my Movie on the TV and at 7 p.m. Lights Out! What's going on?
Well, dark everywhere Inside and nothing to do in the Dark, still some light outside
So I headed out front to sit and watch, saw an Electric Company Truck across the Street
I headed over to ask what was going on, he said a big Tree fell down out back... Oh No!
So I trotted out back to see, yeah, another part of the same big Tree that fell off last Year

~ Big Tree Fall out Back ~

Back out front to sit and watch the neighbors rnnning around, then more Trucks showed up
These weren't the Eectric Company, they were Tree Cutters to get the Limbs off the Wires
They headed out back, I followed to watch and Video the starting efforts on the Tree
Then back out front to sit and watch until it got Dark, then back in to end the Day early

~ Saturday ~ Busy Day after All ~

~ Friday, June 30, 2023 ~
~ Too Hot for Me ~
~ Mild Start ~ Then Sunny and Hot

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Friday and the last Day of June, was it a good Month? Yes, OK with some fun with some good Lottos
And had some fun down on the River wanderng around and taking Videos, a little Gardening at Home
But really not much to write Home about... Home? That's where I am, no need to write at all

So a too Hot Day on Thursday, what do we have for Today? Looks like Sun creeping over the Gully
Forecast says 75 Degrees and Sunny now, then mostly Sunny and heading to 98... An inside Day?

And off in the mild Sunshine at 10 a.m. still in the 70s and feels good
Hit the Price Chopper to cash in my last dinky $5 Win and hit Machine One for my Winners
And then back to scatch and scratch and win back exactly NOTHING! No me gusta nada!

Noon time and some Gardening done... The AeroGarden said to feed it some Plant Food, did that
Then hooked up my Hose and watered end to end out front and filled up the Bird Baths

~ Where are the Tomatoes? ~

So what to do? Sunny and Hot out there, over 90 Degrees, a trip to the Park just to check?
Headed on down, passed the Shelter, several Visitors in there, on down to the Boat Ramp
A few in the Dog Parks, no Boat Trailers in the Lot, no Hikers in sight, Ho Hum

So I headed back to the Shelter, lugged in my Chair, set it on the Bank behind the Shelter
One couple and one lady having lunch, I just sat and watched the Trail for almost nothing
The diners finished and left, then time for me to give up and get out of the heat

~ Downtown Parkville from the Shelter ~

Headed Home,ready to get out and where's my Phone? Not in my Pocket or on a Seat! DRAT!
Remembered that I had set in on a Bench down there... Better head back quick and that's what I did
And Goodie Goodie! It was still where I left it, packed up again and headed back to get cool

Hot out there, Cool in here, poured some Juice to sip and comment on my Blog and then...
Wind down the Day as usual

~ Friday ~ Goodbye June ~
