178th post

CONTINUED FROM LAST EVENING....

I told you all last night that my parents had finished the house on what,

I believe, was called Logan's Hill named after the man/family who sold

my parents the land and the other house that was already there. At some point

in time, Jerry and Janet bought that house (they rent that house now owning a

home off the coast of North Carolina) and are now in the process of buying

my parents last built house. Their intent, I believe, besides using them as rental

properties is to keep some of the memories of my parents and some other

members of the family from being forgotten.

Back to Father driving. We saw mostly farmed fields owned by Old Order

Mennonites planted with corn (no ethanol in those days) and fields used for

hay which was manually, after the hay baler spit out the heavy long and

rectangular bales, loaded onto a flatbed trailer and pulled by a tractor.

We ain't far from Bridgewater now and I believe were going to make it, but

not today.

TO BE CONTINUED....



Summary of the XXXI Olympiad.

SPORTS OF THE (NEW YORK) TIMES

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

"But even amid the celebrations, the rising polarization of Brazil’s unruly

if functioning democracy was on display.

When Globo focused its cameras on revelers celebrating in Rio’s old center,

a cry from the crowd of “Globo golpista!” (“Putschist Globo!”) interrupted

the newscast, revealing even at that moment the political divisiveness

persisting during the Games. (Globo is viewed by some of its critics as

supporting the ouster of the suspended president, Dilma Rousseff.)

Indeed, the sense of reverie will be tested in the coming weeks as

Brazilians confront the ugly realities of surging unemployment, rampant

corruption and the intensifying political drama in the capital, Brasília.

The respite will be brief: In the coming days, Brazil’s Senate will start

its trial of Ms. Rousseff on charges that she illegally manipulated the

federal budget. Michel Temer, the interim president, did not event

attend the closing spectacle after he was greeted with a chorus of boos

during the opening ceremony."


This is Aug. 26: National Dog Day.

A man, woman and child's best friend. In one of my stories I talked about

the family dogs and believe me, there were a lot.

I don't know if we got any rain last night (they called for spotty showers) so

I'll check the dirt for wetness when it gets daylight and if it ain't wet enough,

I'll water the flowers.
