The 4th

. . . and some of the surrounding days.

June 29

[Cousin Barb, who has won a State Public Links and two Resorters tournaments, got her first hole-in-one at Majestic Oaks in the Cities.  All I can say is, “Well, Barb, you finally caught up to me.”]

[Do you suppose it has anything to do with this year being our class’s 50th reunion that they decided to tear down our high school?]

What’s goin’ on downtown?

[“The talent” (David Christman) putting up the marquis?  I wouldn’t do that without a net!]

[Then Corliss went and did the retirement thing on all of us!  Corliss . . . see you at the ball games!  (Well, and hockey games.)]

What, the day’s still not done?

[Of course, the holiday is all about getting together with family – with the family on the lake.  Fortunately, we live far enough away that only the grandson made the trek, with his new close personal friend.  Celia and Tom will be both be seniors at Purdue this year.  As such, Tom is allowed to drive the Super’s car . . . and I’m not?]

[Let’s take the kids to the Arrowwood deck for an evening with Glen Everhart.  Tom went for the double deck cheeseburger and won a quarter off me for eating the whole thing, much to the dismay of Celia.]

[Well, we had to take them to SAWA to see the Salty Dogs.  They’re old enough to drink now, but I told them that means one glass of wine per year until they’re 55.  The Super did not permit wine drinking by Cecilia (a close relative of the fiddler), who napped immediately on her shoulder.  The duck car owner is a close relative of the tenor.]

[The humidity, dew point, and Canadian wildfires joined forces to form what I call an air conditioning and ice cubes kind of day.  We had to venture out to see the Hoosier kids who rented a wave rider from Arrowwood and were going to raise havoc on the chain.  At the end of our dock I looked left, then straight ahead, then right where Arnie, Barbie, and Bodie were enjoying a swim.  Then the kids came – Tom driving first, then Celia.  They ventured all the way to Carlos State Park.]
