177th post

CONTINUED FROM THIS MORNING

I left off this morning telling you that my grandfather built the second house

on the right. Later on when I was about 27 years old and married (about

1969?) with a young son, Michael, Father bought the property (to include

the house that his Father built) and also included about an acre of land

more or less to the south from Mark Logan who lived directly across US

State Route 42 (it is a divided highway now). My parents intent was to

build a house on that property and they moved into the basement when

it was finished and when the upstairs was finished they moved up there

and rented the downstairs, one 3 bedroom apartment and one 1 bedroom

(to the left if you're facing the back of the house).

My Grandmother's Sunday dinner is going to get cold if I don't keep getting

distracted.

TO BE CONTINUED....



Summary of the XXXI Olympiad.

SPORTS OF THE (NEW YORK) TIMES

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

"The Rio Games will also be remembered for a debacle that was not of its

own making: the false claims by the American swimmer Ryan Lochte that

he and some of his teammates had been pulled over and robbed at

gunpoint by men describing themselves as police officers.

On Saturday, Lochte tried to put the controversy to rest by admitting that

he had exaggerated the details of the incident. “I let my team down,” he

told NBC News. “I learned my lesson.”

Still, the victory of Brazil’s national soccer team over Germany’s allowed

many in the country to pivot from the episode involving the swimmers.

Globo, Brazil’s dominant television network, luxuriated in the conquest

of the soccer gold medal, devoting the bulk of its nightly news program

to the triumph."



“It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered

gold over the grassy hillside.”

― Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib

I transplanted more plants and flowers today. When I learn the ways of

YouTube, I'll make a video of the flower beds and then I'll let you know.
