Summertime Happenings

I went to see my brother Bob here in town the other day. He is staying at a nice place. Lots of things for them to do. I got comped a meal with him. It was excellent.

Desert was bread pudding!! It was right out of the oven.

On July 4th, while I was in bed sleeping. Bob got up and did a mile in the halls of his place in his wheelchair. Six laps, he got this medal to celebrate. Not only was I asleep, I had covid so I couldn’t go cheer him on and take photos.

Last weekend, the Tulsa Urban Wilderness Coalition had a work day on Turkey Mountain. Lots of people showed up to do some really hard work repairing erosion damage and rebuilding jumps and all that heavy work. Kudos to them.

What did I do that day? I watered the butterfly garden.

And took videos of the cottonwood trees shimmering in the breeze.

I also gathered up my loppers, a trash bag, and my 32 oz water container and ventured out onto a lesser used trail picking up litter and lopping limbs that intrude on the trail too much. So I didn’t do the big heavy lifting that others were doing but I was doing what I could.

So for a musical interlude, “American Kids” by Kenny Chesney. A fun summertime song. Enjoy

    You can tell you are brothers. Sweet photos and ahhhh, bread pudding, my favorite dessert and this looked really good! Thanks for the shimmering cottonwoods and the walk. I am still tapping my toes to Chesney, that doesn’t happen too often 🙂 sorry to read about the Covid and hope you feel better real soon.

    Pretty fancy have lunch with the china, tablecloths and cloth napkins. Bob is looking good. Kudos to you for volunteering for the trails. I’ve been thinking about getting involved with our local trail coalition.
