Small town parade

Our small town’s annual fair had its opening parade the other night. A neat aspect of living in a small town is that you’re not restrained behind barricades dozens of feet away, you’re right there only a few feet from the action. You can make eye contact, person to person as it should be.

Back on Thursday.

Play ball.

I recently had the good fortune to attend a Tigers-Astros game. Although Jose Altuve – the best second baseman in the majors – went oh for four and the Astros lost 5-3, it was a decent, entertaining game and a very enjoyable evening.

A special plane ride

My dad flew the C-47 Skytrain troop transport airplane in World War II. I had the great good fortune to ride in one the other day. The experience gave me the opportunity to experience a tiny sliver of how he spent about 2 1/2 years of his life.
