Hot and Humid
July 15th, 2006 was the hottest day of the year. The temperature in Downers Grove reached 97.34 Fahrenheit Degrees on my shaded backyard deck. That was a good day to stay inside and enjoy the air conditioning. What did I do? First I converted the temperature to Celsius, now it was only 36.34 degrees Celsius. I love Celsius, I'm not even 19 years old when I convert my age to Celsius.
At 8:00 A.M., my wife and I packed up a cooler and some lawn chairs and headed over to a nearby park, where we watched our granddaughter's Softball team win game one of a tournament. When I saw that that game was in the bag, I zipped over to Boilingbrook to watch my grandson Jeff's Baseball team get thumped pretty good.
That game finished just in time for me to go home, change into a dry shirt, pick up my wife and head over to see Michelle's 12:00 game. They lost a heart breaker, so I went home and got another dry shirt and headed over to watch Jeff's team lose a heart breaker. I went home and watched the Cubs clobber the Mets 9-2. I showered, put on my forth dry shirt of the day and prepared for Michelle's 6:00 P.M. game. The poor girls were exhausted and their pitchers were out of gas, as they were eliminated from the tournament with their second loss. The good news is we get to stay home on Sunday when the mercury approached 100.
I watched 3 baseball games and 3 softball games!
|After watching 6 game, I headed over to Bonos Cruz in Saturday Night, Where I was able to see my Son's 57 Chevy Nomad, my grandson Jeff's 1980 Camero and my grandson Mike's 1987 Mustang.|

Getting ready for the Duffer picnic keeps me pretty busy in May and June.
I went to Denver in March of 2004, to watch the Avalanche play 2 games. We played 2 games too and I worked up a big thirst, but I behaved myself and stayed on my low carb diet and lost 20 pounds.
In May, 2003 my brother, sisters and I threw a surprise party for my mom's 90th Birthday. Go to Mom's Party Pictures.
