It's Officially...


...Summer...as of June 21st at 5:14 am EST.

We enjoyed 15 hours and 20 minutes of daylight on the longest day of the year, but did suffer in the 93 degree heat.

Still better than what we endured just a few short months ago...


...so no complaints from this side of the fence.

Of course, it does mean the days will now be getting shorter - we’ve already lost a minute of daylight - as we march inexorably toward Autumn and then





Well, you know.



Meanwhile, Larry's struggle for survival continues...

...in the harsh northern wilderness...



...where dangerous wildlife abound...

rare red-tailed black squirrel, poised to attack.  or something.


...and even basic necessities...

what?  you think those strawberries picked themselves?


...are in short supply.

I think the rest are in the freezer.


Um...pass the toast please, and would it kill you to get me a cup of coffee while you're at it?

Thank you.



In the "Can't Remember Why I Bother" department...



...I tried my hand at flogging again today.

Out of 9 tee shots, I only hit the sweet spot on 2 of them...the other 7 felt like broken bat singles...


...where the vibration of the hickory shaft rattled my hands.  The ball went the right direction but way short.

Didn't splash any, but ended up in the weeds near the water on 3 of them.

Even recruited a few of the locals to help me search for my ball...



...since I figured they knew the area, but they turned out to be of little help.

Ended the round with 1 par, 3 bogeys, 2 double bogeys, and 3 triple bogeys (1 off the tee, an interlude of fruitless searching, then 2 to drop, hitting 3 onto the green, 3 putt for triple bogey, and 1 forehead slap while repeating "stupid! stupid! stupid!").

Consequently I've decided to do the humane thing and never golf again for the good of mankind.

Until next week.



Thank you for flying with us today...


...now please watch your step as you tip toe through the Parting Shots department...

As you rush for the exits, we leave you with this truth from God's Word:
