Starting this thread to see whether people want to share their Day, not all of them, just the Day....:cool:

Today I had a battle with an old fence that didn't want to be torn down...But I bested it because I had Tools....:cool:
What really made my day was when I sat down to watch an OPB show this evening. Part of it was about a very good violin player from Corvallis, which is a town about 40 miles north of ours, and she is still in High School....Had to share Her link

An interesting day, so far.

Bought a watermelon yesterday, and when I got it home, noticed it was rotten on one end, so knew I needed to use it right away. Made a salad with watermelon pieces, Feta cheese, strawberries, fresh dill, fresh basil, oil, and vinegar. Delish!

Staying inside, as it is both hot, and very smoky from many fires.

We've had the USA Olympic Trials going on in our town and they have some side venues....My Grandson's band played there today and I had to share a link.

(I heard and have read about all the smoke up close to you Eggy and I hope you're safe from it...Sounds like the whole Rocky Mountains are burning up....)

Just had a radio alert, an evacuation order for folks down around Wheatland, WY. Today, they banned fireworks in the county for the first time since I've lived here. This much, this early in fire season is truly frightening.

Hope you are in a safe area.

I did a physical setup of a 5.1 surround system today (mechanical technician) but could not get the rear channels working. Melissa played with the amp/receiver and got them working (sound engineer) and together we got the balance just right. We are talking about close to $2,000 (real dollars) in JBL speakers, front and back.

We watched Twister as a sound check. It was interesting to hear the tornadoes swirling around our heads! ;)(y)

Cute,

I'm parked in the basement for the duration, as upstairs is 80 degrees, and climbing.

Small A/C in bedroom, and no insulation.

Thankfully, the PC, and all electronics are down here with me.:)

My mind is filled with thoughts of vacation, which starts Friday. We are taking a driving tour of the south of our province, which I have not seen myself since moving here thirty years ago. Shameful, maybe, but I can claim that I have seen more of this country than the majority of Canadians. I love showing Liam new things; teaching him, answering his questions and watching the look of wonder on his fresh face. We will pop into B.C. I have seen all ten provinces but for Melissa this will be her fifth, and Liam's third. You can't truly claim to know your country until you have seen it.
