Went for a 3 mile walk with my dog this morning around a local lake. We would walk awhile then sit on a comfy bench and watch the birds and people. It's been very windy and hot lately so we had very wind blown hair when we returned home.

Planted 3 tomato plants, an eggplant and a broccoli plant along with some marigolds. Having one of my cups of green tea now and will head toward the bathtub shortly to get the garden dirt off. Nice day so far wind and all.

Out to breakfast with DW and DD home from college. Later I may watch the recordings of Sunday night's Lost-fest, to see how it all turned out.

Washed insides of all house windows and removed and cleaned all screens with brush and garden hose. It is 81 degrees here in East Nowhere. I am in siesta mode right now.

Announcing...my first summer flowers

I've never seen Lost, but I recorded the last episode, and used this video to catch up:

Got up early and went for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with my Mom. (Our CB still has the worst service of any that I've ever been to...won't go back!) Dropped Mom off at home, and went for coffee with the gang. Came back home and put in the 2 window A/C units....yesterday it was only 90....today it was 94!!! S'posed to be hot & humid the next couple of days...so it was time for the A/C.

After that, I had a couple of hot dogs for lunch, read for a while, and then decided it was time to head to the coffee shop again, but this time for an ice-cold lemonade!!! YES!!!

Now have to figure out what's for supper! Hmmm....I dunno, but I guess I'll figure something out!

Played house today....

Just got through eating eggplant parmesan...mmmm..so good. Now I'm sippin' a fine glass of Pinot Noir. Unfortunately in my stage of the game, I have to plop an ice cube in the glass of wine....

It still tastes good......

Got the boat out of the garage, changed oil, spark plugs, gas, and gear lube. Now I'm waiting for the Tony the pontoon hauler to drop it in the lake.

Looks like a happy puppy!

Dogs are always good photography subjects. They're never critical of the results.

Old dog and I went for a walk at 7:00 am before it hit 90. Still poured sweat. Saw 15 turkey vultures kettling and swatted mosquitoes. Came back to see the latest market crash.

Dodging the heat here, too, in MI. Walked the dog at 8 AM before it gets too hot for her. Got home in time to see ex-mayor sentenced to 2 -5 years for probation violation. Sorry for taking him back away from you, Dallas.

I played a "teach kids about jazz" gig at a middle school this morning.

We invite the kids up to sing scat, and that's always fun

But I was bummed that my bass player told me that he has prostate cancer.

After the gig the drummer and I went out for a leisurely lunch.

Towed my boat home. I did some interesting maneuvers in the driveway to turn it around 180 degrees without another pair of eyes to help. No damage done.
Took a midday 1 hour nap in my AC bedroom. We have a regular heat wave (by upstate NY standards ) going on here.
Moved my tomato and pepper seedlings out to the screened porch to start hardening off. Moved my indoor wintered over geraniums to outside plant hangers. Summer is HERE!

Lena's flight was supposed to get in at midnight, now it's delayed and will arrive at 1:15 AM. Do I stay up, or go to sleep and set the alarm

That's true, but I don't have to go to w*rk tomorrow...but I am feelin' sleepy....

Now...if you decide to stay up, be sure your alarm clock is nearby, just in case.

(I wonder if anyone else is reading our conversation?)

That's the third bass player I've heard about or know in 6 months with prostate cancer. I'm switching back to sax.
