I must admit I'm rather glad July is over. We had temperatures that broke records for heat, and we're also setting a new record for days with no rain. I believe we're up to 50.
There were good things too. Our family BBQ on July 1st is always lots of fun. Then M turned 12 (he's the youngest of our 5 grands). We enjoyed our first ripe tomatoes and of course I enjoyed my flowers.
Here is a photo taken I think in 1987 while we were on a road trip with Miss C and our DIL. We were dropping them off in Alberta at her Dad's and we were continuing on to Waterton and Glacier National Parks. I'm not sure why my DH posed on that tree. Must have been some reason or other. I do remember that poor Miss C got practically eaten alive by mosquitoes. She was such a sweet little girl and I miss those days ( she's still sweet but in a different way of course.)
Here's a picture NOT AT ALL SWEET. Some hooligans thought it would be fun to light the boardwalk across the lake on fire. It happened in the wee hours of this morning. At one time we had police on bikes patrolling the park but that didn't last. I wish they'd bring that back.
Take care, G.M.
I didn't have much to blog about today but I did want to do a final July post. I hope you're all having a pleasant weekend. It's a long one here in Canada but to us who are retired long weekends are not all that special. Every weekend is like a nice long weekend.
