Good morning. It's a bit cloudy this morning, and today's high temperature will be around 81. Tomorrow should be more of the same. Both days, we are expecting scattered thunder storms; and at the moment, the Weather Channel is posting flash flood alerts for our area through tomorrow afternoon.
Yesterday was a day of rest. I did, however, clean up another large pile of paper goods, filling up one bag with recycles and another smaller bag with shredables. When the shredable bag gets a little bigger, I'll sit down and shred everything in it.
Last night Kevin's baseball game was in Oxford, quite a distance from here. They needed to win this game and the next to win the state championship. Mother Nature was not cooperating and it started raining way before Dee, Eddie and Kevin got to Oxford. However, unless there was thunder and lightning, the game would be played.
And play, they did. Around the fourth inning, our boys were down by eight runs but then they made quite a comeback and tied the game up. This game started between 7 and 7:30 p.m. and did not finish until after midnight. The teams played in extra innings until finally our team lost 12 to 11. Guys, you did a fantastic job this year. Kevin, I'm so very proud of you.
I have a couple more photos of boats from our trip to Plymouth Harbor. The first photo is the CAPT. JOHN & SON tourist boat, and the second photo is an adorable little boat that reminds me of a little wind-up toy boat from yesteryear.
This morning, I'm going to give Pogo a bath with an olive oil shampoo. He's been itchy all over since his grooming, and I'm hoping that the shampoo will get rid of the itch. First, I'll shut off the A/C so that Pogo doesn't catch a cold. After that, I think I'll call and make him an appointment for his yearly checkup and any shots that are due.
Well, that's all the news for today. It's time to make my morning coffee and do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
