Thoughts While Shaving for July 21

Was it hot yesterday or not? 97 degrees at the local National Weather Service reporting station … 97 DEGREES. Thought we were going to receive some rain ’bout 9 p.m., but it ‘fizzled’ out before it reached our location or the NWS reporting station at the nearby airport … Bet some west of us did receive.

Weather forecast is for another hot day, high near 97 degrees and a 30% chance of rain … and, not much change for the next couple of days…

Changing the subject … At my age, little to do, well … let me re-phrase, nothing to do that I care to do … Woke up this a.m. thinking about friends that were some of my best buddies years ago, many I haven’t heard from in years. Wonder if they are still alive, if yes, wonder about their health … their family.

No doubt many are deceased, some likely suffering from bad health, but some still going strong … well, at my age, going strong is able to feed, and take care of ourselves … totally lost contact with so many … Not sure how that subject came up.

With the virus still on our mind, no class reunions and none planned. No gatherings of any kind … homecomings at churches, etc.

Recently went with a friend/relative to a nearby hospital for some tests. While I was waiting and watching, just wanted to thank the good Lord for my pretty-good health. Lots of people with serious issues, many much younger than me, I think.

One stat before signing off … Less daylight than a month ago … Sunrise June 20 was 6:02 a.m. and sunset a month ago was 8:31 p.m. Yesterday, July 20, sunrise at 6:31 a.m. and sunset at 8:08 p.m. … or little over an hour less daylight yesterday…

Whatever you decide to do make sure it makes you happy…

May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the pure light within you guide your way on.

Friends, sun, sand and sea, that sounds like a summer to me.
