Today the Summer Olympics end in London. We have enjoyed the few hours we have been able to watch them. What was your favorite event or something that happened at the events?
Mine was Mo Farrah. I don't know why. He and his running partner Galen Rupp caught my attention the day they ran the 10,000 meter. I enjoyed the 5000 meter showed last night almost as much. The look on that man's face was priceless both times, but I admit he looks like a skeleton to me!
I was skinny when I was a runner but I don't think I was ever that skinny? I was known as one of the fastest kids around Sardinia and my speed went with my personality. I can get bored easily.
Mass was wonderful today. The Mass readings are always to the point and ways to live as they were today. Forty days and forty nights is a long time until you go through it yourself and you get more understanding what all those Bible references point out.
We got home and put together enough stuff for LuAnn to make vegeterian Lasagna. I can't wait for that but I think I won't be able to turn down the pizza party for Brynn's birthday. Brynn was 6 yesterday and we haven't seen her in awhile. We have been spending time with the others because we usually see her more often.
I feel like I am catching up a bit but about the time I think that I will be far behind again. I realized this morning after looking at those nice, refinished Ollies at OVAM yesterday that I need something more practical. I need a good 80 horse utility like tractor to replace the 1655's. I can't believe I am even thinking that but it's true.
It has to be one I can climb on and off easily like my 24 horse Farmall I use for a real tractor too much. It's a glorifed lawn mower and that's it. I have a lot of mowing to do and I haven't done a good job around my fields this year. Thankfully the county, state and township has done an excellent job for me. The drivers must sense I am getting older because I used to do what they are doiong for me now.
My corn has awesome ears on it. I am really blessed. Did you know we consume 25 corn plants per day per person in the United States?
It's a totally beautiful day here in southwest Ohio with temperatures in the 70's and blue sky. It is really, really nice.
I hope it is for you, too.
