The Good Life

I spent this afternoon with my son and his family; drank a couple of beers, watched the Rangers put it on Boston, and enjoyed doing a bit of trotty-horse with our grandson.  He just turned one a few weeks ago and is such a joy. 

I am one lucky man; wonderful wife, three fabulous children, and two special grandsons.  All the rest is just details.

Goodby Summer?

It's officially the hottest summer on record here in this part of North Texas.  The mean temperature (and that's "mean" in both senses of the word) for June, July, and August was 90.6 degrees Fahrenheit.  But finally, it looks like relief is on the way.  The forecast high for Monday is 87 degrees with a low of 66.  We're ready for some of that!
