Lighthouse

Not the sharpest image ever shot of this often-photographed Lorain lighthouse. Too hazy. I’ll have to get up earlier or wait till closer to sundown. Or find a better photographer.

Memorial Day 2018

Memorial Day, May 28, 2018.

It’s 10-something a.m. on Washington Avenue in bucolic Elyria, Ohio.

Pretty much your standard small-town parade: firetrucks, convertibles, every club and civic organization in town, old soldiers, not-so-old soldiers, Marines, etc., firetrucks, candy, marching bands, vintage cars, a beat-up old Ford station wagon (!), no DeLorean. A cemetery.

At the Rib Cook-Off

Took a little jaunt down the pike to Berea for the Rib Cook-Off, the unofficial official start of summer in Northeast Ohio.

After getting caught in rush-hour traffic, I arrived at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds to a fairly sparse crowd. Things were just getting started, I guess.

Anyway, here are just a few pics from the day. Nothing spectacular, but the ribs I tried were mighty tasty. I randomly picked Sgt. Oink, one of fourteen vying for the championship. Recommended!

Entertainment provided by Cleveland classic R&B group Cruisin.

Old news

I’ve been having some trouble with WordPress. I don’t know how much is the blog app or whether my competer and browser have simply gotten too old.
Well, I’ll try typing blind.
IT was a full moon.

And this is what happened:

And this:

And finally this:

Fortunately, it was not my apartment that burned, but an upstairs unit.

I was a temporary refugee. Building is still a mess and many of the tenants have relocated. But I’m staying put. I just hate to move.

Cleaning house

Time to clean house, update files, unclutter the computer, restore order. Do the dishes. Put away the laundry. Purge that hulking pile of paper and crap.

This kind of goes hand-in-hand with the recent miniburst of activity on the blog and so forth.

Been living a pretty slothful life for the last, oh, I dunno, year or so.

Time for control + alt + delete 2.0. Maybe defrag the hard drive and purge some files. Figuratively and literally.

Who knows? Maybe a change of scenery would do me good.

That’s all for now.
