Could this be heaven? I mean how could things be better? We've had thunderstorms two days in a row now! Real thunderstorms, not just the wimpy kind that produce three or four flashes of lightning and a rumble or two of thunder. These guys have packed some real rain and some pretty nice booms. That plus the fact that today's came in the afternoon when I could glue my face to the window gave a touch of Florida to the day. Ahh...Florida. Actually, it's been a pretty good day all around today, at least so far. I'm back to being able to join my posse for tennis again on Wednesday mornings, and things were sort of rolling my way. In the first set I was teamed with Wild Bill Safranek, against Mark and John (the Happiest man that I have ever met). Mark and John had concocted some sort of deal with the devil and were sure that they would come out victorious. You gotta be careful when you deal with ol' Satan since he's been a liar and murderer from the beginning (you'll find that in John 8:44). I guess the devil double-crossed them as Bill and I breezed to a 6-3 victory. In the second set it was Mark and I (the youngsters) who went up against the much crustier pair of Bill and John. Us kids made an incredible comeback from a 4-1 deficit to prevail in a tie-breaker. In he final tie breaker (which was all we had time for) I added to John's Happiness as the two of us came out on top. In the end I was not only big today, but also the "big winner".
For the first two days of the week...that would be Monday and Tuesday...we hosted my little buddy Brady during the day. Kay was doing most of the hosting but I pitched in when I could. Monday morning we did a little snake hunting and were somewhat successful putting to death a couple of hoses and an old tire. Brady and I put in a little time on the tennis court too, where he beat me in straight sets. We alter the rules a little bit but the game is basically the same. We each carry a racquet and have to hit a tennis ball, but beyond that you might be hard pressed to figure out the details of the game. Brady gets it, so that's all that matters.
We found out yesterday that one of our neighbors was burglarized late Monday night. Someone got into their garage and took a few things, but there was no major loss and no damage to anything. In response to that what did I do? Well, I left our garage door open all night...forgot to close it when we came in during the evening. As proof that we have absolutely nothing that anyone would want nothing was missing or disturbed.
