172nd post

CONTINUED FROM LAST EVENING....

And maybe we went to our grandparents house while we lived in the two other

houses we lived in in Dayton after the Thompson Street house?

Now I 'll finally tell you the directions to my grandparent's home place and

where we went for Sunday dinner.

I told you all about taking State Route 42, but failed to mention that we started

out  from the house on Ottobine Road (this may also be State Route 257).

We started out with Father driving (Kaser Fraser, Buick ? Father liked a big car)

and Mother riding shotgun, reading all the road signs along the way and all

of us breathing the second hand smoke of my Father's cigarettes (my Father

smoked a menthol and then a regular cigarette at maybe 25 cents a pack.

I machine roll my cigarettes and they cost about $1.35 a pack).

Well, at least we're in the car and headed east on Ottobine Road towards

US State Route 42.

And we'll get there, I promise.

TO BE CONTINUED....


Summary of the XXXI Olympiad.

SPORTS OF THE (NEW YORK) TIMES

By SIMON ROMERO and ANDREW JACOBS, AUG. 21, 2016....

“We know the city isn’t an easy place to live in, but Rio flung its arms

wide open, and we need to congratulate ourselves for our receptiveness

and joy in making such a beautiful party,” said NaidĂȘ GouvĂȘa Lira, 45,

a logistics analyst.

The ebullience was further buoyed on Saturday by the Brazilian soccer

team’s win over Germany, a victory that yielded one of the country’s

seven gold medals in the Games and helped ease the sting of its humiliating

2014 World Cup loss to the Germans....

Over all, Brazilians seemed satisfied with their relatively modest medal

count, which placed the country among the top 14 nations, its best

Olympic showing ever. Many are still savoring their first gold of the Rio

Games, won in judo by Rafaela Silva, 24, a black woman from an

impoverished part of Rio. “To see her win really lifted our spirits,” said

Fabio Costa dos Santos, 47, an unemployed carpenter who, like Silva,

hails from City of God, a favela in the city’s western suburbs."


“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been

the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

― Henry James

I told you all before that I like planting and taking care of plants and flowers.

I take care of about 12 different beds of various sizes with maybe 70 different

flowers/plants in total. I have only two varieties of vegetable plants, 4 tomato

plants and two pepper plants. I'm now dividing flowers in some beds and

transplanting them to other beds.  Does flower transplanting mean to take the

heart, kidney, liver, lung or other organ from a dead plant and give it to a live

plant?
