Weather: We’re having some really nice, if a little wet weather for the end of July here in St. Louis. Highs in the 70s for several days is almost unheard of at this time of year and with low humidity to boot.
Floatin’: Last Sunday we had the kids over playing cards and in the middle of the card game a bug landed on my glasses, or so I thought. I wiped it away but it was still there, fluttering around. Another swipe at it and a close look at my glasses and I finally realized that it was an eye-floater and not a bug. A pretty good sized one at that in my peripheral vision. It is annoying as Hell, too. It’s shaped like the figure to the right. I keep thinking I see something or someone moving to my left. And the damn thing has a shadow, a very subtle light floater that seems to follow this one around by what seems like about an inch. It’s not nearly as annoying as the bigger, more prominent one. … I just can’t wait to see what happens next. On a positive note, I’m feeling pretty good otherwise.
The week ahead: Next Saturday is our mud volleyball tournament. This is the 34th year we’ve been doing it. I’ll be doing a bit of work for it this week but I don’t do near as much as I used to do.
That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?
