JULY 21, FRIDAY
Every morning I spend time out on FP (Front Porch) having coffee, breakfast and reading the Chicago Tribune. Enjoying the yard, which is now at peak color for the summer and listening to the birds sing. To me, that is as good as it gets.
I went to McHenry to check out the yard nurseries and found that there were now sales going on at Wal-Mart and Home Depot so took advantage of that and bought more flowers, which I don't need.
We had planned on going to Antioch's Taste of Summer tonight to see the country band Suburban Cowboys, but with forecasts and threatening skies, decided not to. Glad we didn't go as we had torrential rains. Still something we don't need with all the flooding.
We went to the Legion and met the Usual Suspects (our friends) for 50-50. We didn't win, but at least stayed dry. It was hard to see going home with how hard the rain was coming down.
Enjoyed Margaritaville, our downstairs bar and the Ultimate Jukebox (300 CDs). The Legion's digital jukebox didn't have it, but the Ultimate Jukebox did, the Cryan' Shames' "Rainmaker," a very appropriate song these days.
