175th post

CONTINUED FROM THIS MORNING

"Father stopped, then turned right headed towards Bridgewater."

As us kids set in the back, I could see things that I cannot remember now.

The Dayton's Farmer's Market, doctor's offices, furniture store,

insurance office and some other business's that are off to the right

about an 1/8 mile from turning right are there now. Where any of them

there then? I don't know.

As we drove, I remember Herring's Hill which wound to the left and up the

the hill as Father drove. Was the first house to the right there then? Again,

I don't know. TO BE CONTINUED....

CONTINUED FROM THIS MORNING

So, If Uncle E. C. and Aunt Ruth have place, and Jerry and Janet have a place,

and Roland has a place at Lake Wales, Florida in that order, then we might as

well move the whole living family tree down there.

SPORTS OF THE (NEW YORK) TIMES

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

"Still, many of the worst fears proved unfounded. Zika, the mosquito-borne

virus that prompted some foreign athletes to stay home, was largely

forgotten as the Games got underway.

So, too, were anxieties over a potential terrorist attack. And while the state

government failed to meet promises that it would clean up the sewage-

infested Guanabara Bay, boating competitions took place without any

collisions between sailors and floating sofas.

Anderson Gurgel, a sports researcher at Mackenzie Presbyterian

University in São Paulo, commended the organizers for dealing with the

unexpected problems, although he said they were sometimes slow to act.

“Every event of this size has problems; the issue is how to manage them,

” Gurgel said. “Brazilians need to learn things won’t always go wrong,

that there won’t always be chaos."


“If it could only be like this always – always summer, always alone, the

fruit always ripe and Aloysius in a good temper...”

― Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

From Good Reads

I watered the plants and flowers this morning (about 8:00 AM) like they

said to do (I talked about that this morning) and transplanted a lot more

flowers and plants, too. I'll probably do some mulching tomorrow. They're

calling for rain tomorrow, but as long as there is no lightning, I can work in

the rain.


After completing last night's post, I went outside and saw a glorious sky

full of stars and imagined that I could see my Father and Mother sitting on

one of those stars in Heaven holding hands and smiling and I wondered if

they were looking down at me to see how I was doing. I waved to them and

then....... I started to cry.
