The critters were out looking for food and whatever else they
do, the blue sky didn’t have a cloud in it, and the weather was
great. The only down side is I didn’t get to see the space
station when it went over the east coast of Iowa because of all
the trees in its projected path.
But the moon and stars came out and lit up the night sky like
bulbs on a Christmas tree. I even managed to get a little yard
work done. I have now figured out that if I do a little every day
by the end of the year the yard will only look half bad. I even
watched local news for a bit and learned we will have another
open seat on our city council soon.
We await the upcoming holidays to see if the new law that
legalizes the sale of fireworks will have any impact on the
amount of fireworks set off. Our city law states it is legal to
use the fireworks for a week around the 4th of July and around
the same on New Years.
When sales were illegal the fireworks usually began the middle
of June and went through August then again around New Years.
We will soon find out if this year will be louder. That being
said it’s time to attack the yard and see if progress can be
made. I always have plan B to fall back on. Pave the whole
yard and paint it green.
Enjoy our Wednesday. We’re halfway through the traditional
work week, or as we retirees say “just another day”.
Comments are always welcome.
