It is Friday evening...the weekend is upon us. The day started, as a Friday usually does, out on the tennis court. My ineptitude was once again on display as I could not get a serve to land in the service box to save my life...at least not a first serve. The second serves were a little better, but still problematic. I have no idea what the problem was, but there was certainly a problem. The bottom line was that I got my butt kicked around the court for a good hour and a half once again.
Speaking of lousy, and I have used that term to describe the weather over the past two and a half months, the day began on that side of the coin once again. It did get better as the morning turned to afternoon, and by evening the sky was basically clear. That all bodes well for the weekend as we are finally going to have some nice weather. On Saturday the sun will be out almost all day long and the temperatures are going to be taking a jump into the mid to upper 70s in the afternoon. On Sunday we should be into the low 80s...woohoo!...and its about time.
In spite of the fact that the weather is finally going to start saying summer there will be a taste of winter in my weekend, at least in terms of winter sports. The summer basketball schedule begins tomorrow and I will be out on the court just after noon wearing a striped shirt and blowing a whistle at a bunch of high school kids that just won't be able to keep themselves from clobbering each other.
