Day 269

I am humbled to have been entrusted with the responsibility of two days in Beth's journal.  I'm not quite sure what I've done to deserve it, but I will do my best to keep with the spirit of her usual posts.  I'm George, an electrician from the Philly area.

Today I am grateful for:

The wife.  Terry puts up with a lot of baggage and lets it slide off like she is Teflon.  She doesn't bat an eye when I have a room full of guys with guitars and amplifiers and microphones, and she's a mighty good cook too!

Sunday Afternoons in the fall.  I share a Sunday plan for the Phillies with my youngest brother for every home Sunday game.  This time of year we not only get to enjoy baseball but we have the added joy of the NFL season starting, really getting this sports junkie going. Did I mention how much stuff my wife puts up with?

The sound of the crickets in the woods out back.  The birds & cicadas during the day as well....the 3 o clock church bells doing a hymn (St Joes), and depending on the day and wind, Pennsbury's marching band during a practice or on Friday night a game.  Just a few things I've always enjoyed hearing here....

Good Neighbors.  We are  lucky with great neighbors for the most part.  Today my next door  neighbor Dennis drooped by with some smoked turkey that he'd made. He's been smoking stuff (meats!  sheesh..)ever since I moved in here, and when he didn't come in last place at the big community day competing against experienced teams he decided he was going to get serious.   He bought a new smoker, and a van to haul the equipment in.  I am in the fortunate position to eat all his leftover practice food. Get practicing Dennis!

My bike.  I didn't get a ride in today as I slept in this morning.  Thank goodness for the extra Jenny Craig from the week at the shore!  Anyway, much like Beth i enjoy riding my bike.  The big difference is that I just recently got back into riding.  It was something I loved as a kid and tried to do as an adult ( but 60+ lbs heavier than I am  now) but now that I've gotten my weight under control I thought I'd give it another try.  I went to Bucks County Bikes and got a bike that fit me and my needs and ride regularly at the park, as well as just short jaunts to the gym etc.  I had forgotten just how much fun it is.

I am new at this, so that's all I have for now.  I wish everyone a safe and happy remainder of your weekends and look forward to my next post!
