Great things that happened on June 30, 2019

Lawn mowing before the heat and humidity kicked in.

Birthday lunch at Paige’s for my nephew Aaron and my nieces Sarah and Rachael. Lots of selfies - I took some too.

I got to hold my grand niece!

Joe and I got his tire fixed.

Post lunch dip in the pool with Paige, Aaron, Joe, Tommy, Beth. It felt great!

Dinner at Bob Evans - I had salmon, salad, baked potato and carrots.

After dinner shopping at Jungle Jim’s. I didn’t find any Wild Ohio beer, but I did find some other beers and lots of other great things.

It turned out I wasn't looking hard enough - Jungle Jim's stocks Wild Ohio beer.  And about 10,000 other kinds of beer.

Great things that happened all week long

Friday was the conclusion of a great day camp! Beth and all the volunteers did an awesome job!

- The kids had a lot of fun.

- Jason Pollitt and I had a lot of fun telling high quality jokes at the trading post / health tent.

- Bill Hiler stopped by to visit. I'm not sure if Tom shared any jokes with Bill or not...

- Tom did help us out at trading post when he got a break from Cub Cooking.

I found out that Tom did in fact share some puns with Bill. That's my boy!

"Joke" of the day - June 26, 2019

Today at the Day Camp Trading Post a scout came up and showed me the can he shot at bee bee guns.

Another scout said "I shot two cans!"

I said "You shot toucans? Bummer - they're pretty birds... now how will we get Froot Loops?"

Mostly crickets... but I enjoyed it.

- A cool morning meant coffee on the deck with the dogs.

Great things that happened on June 21, 2019

- Lunch at The Schoolhouse Restaurant with co-workers.

- It was delicious as always.

- Got a lot of project work done. Also a good office cleanup ahead of my week off.

- Beth, Tommy and I went to Sam’s Club and got the Day Camp supplies.

- Then we stopped at Jungle Jim’s for some Day Camp items, and some personal items.

- Oh and we had dinner at Panera - I went with salad after the big lunch.

- Made it home in time to watch the Indians come from behind and then hold off the Tigers.

The Schoolhouse restaurant in Milford Ohio is incredible. The food is great, there is plenty of it, and the restaurant itself is in a 155 year old building that was a schoolhouse until 1952.

The link has all the history - but one thing that I find particularly amusing is this quote:

The second story contained the Principal’s office, used as our bar for special events...

The more you know...

"Joke" of the day - June 20, 2019

I spilled some Thai food on my shirt today and didn't notice until I got home.

That means all afternoon I wore a shirt and Thai.

Great things that happened on June 20, 2019

Lunch with co-workers at a Thai restaurant.

It has been a long time since I had Thai food.

It was delicious. I like it as well as I like Chinese food, but not more.

Yeah... I'd say between those two it's a... tie...

Dinner at Chipotle with Beth and Tommy.

After dinner trip to Wal Mart to get Day Camp supplies.

Great things that happened on June 18, 2019

- I ordered a Gladiator garage works cabinet from Lowe’s.

- I picked it up after work and brought it home.

- Tommy and I put it together.

- Then I picked black raspberries - we are over 1/2 gallon of future raspberry wine.

- On the way to pick raspberries I saw a tiny toad. I don’t think he’s one of the tadpoles that Tom saved from the pool (and raised for a week for the amphibian merit badge) but he was still cool.

- I got a shower, then Beth, Tom and I went to UDF for sundaes, or in my case a peach milkshake.

- We got home and I watched the Indians finish up the butt whipping of Texas - including the back to back to back home runs.
