Adios, June!

I can’t even believe it’s the end of June. I’m not going to harp on the fact that the weather has been less than stellar so far - that would be pointless.
I just can’t get over how quickly time flies!

Coming up in July I have a friend from Ireland coming to visit (he’s coming to see Boston, not just me), 4th of July celebrations to attend, BBQs to host, and above all, the end of the softball season.
Most other ‘summer leagues’ are just getting going at this point, but our league isn’t one of them. We begin our season in early May and then usually finish up by the middle of July. When I first joined the league, we were actually always finished be the 4th of July, so the past few years have been an exceptionally ‘long’ season based on past BSL seasons.
When I tell my friends that I only have 4 games left, most of them are pretty shocked. I think it’s a pretty good deal though. We get to play a decent amount of games and still manage to have a summer. If we went any longer, not only would the heat be unbearable, but since it’s primarily a weekend league, there wouldn’t be any time to do anything other than softball all summer long, so this schedule is just perfect!

Maybe Jim and I will plan a weekend away at some point…at the very least; I’d like to spend a day down in P-Town.
We usually try to go for the day at least once a year, but I don’t think we made it down there last summer….or if we did, it was rainy. I can’t recall.
With my luck (and my memory) we probably went for the day and it was a beautiful, sunny day.

I don’t have much to say today….things are going well with the commute and new location. I’m greeted every morning at the entrance of the building by a bunny or two…that makes me smile. I’m a sucker for nature.

That is, unless I’m pulling it out of my pool filter. Yesterday I had to scoop up (SCOOP IT UP!) a drowned chipmunk off the bottom of the deep end; and one day a couple weeks ago we had a double homicide – a baby robin and a mouse went home to Jesus on the very same day. Sadness.
I think it’s time we invest in a ‘scamper ramp’ and see if they actually work…..

That’s all for today peeps….have a good one!!!
