Another good day for the Broncos and a day off for the Cardinals. A good way to spend the weekend. More arrivals here at J-5 as Rich and Joann arrived from Gillespie, IL and Cezaire and MaryAnn arrived from Essex, Ontario. More arrivals are expected this week as the season begins.

Today's big event was to dust off the checkbook and pay the rent on lot 59 for another year. Now I have a place to park for the next 12 months or until they figure me out and have me removed.
Last nights Cardinal game was a bust. Even though they traveled to the west coast they left their bats in St. Louis. The pitching was good, allowing only two runs, but it's hard to win when you don't score any runs. Hopefully tonight will be better.
After a 12 day journey around the country my replacement sensor arrived in Mission this morning at 5 am. We'll see when they get around to delivering it to me.

Today a 5:30 pm the weather sensor finally arrived. I opened the box and prepared it for installation in the morning, the humidity has already dropped to 50%.
The Cardinals found their bats and quit shooting themselves in the foot. The series is now 3 games to 1 and another victory will send us off to the world series.
Today was the second annual 'Meet with the Weavers' day. We met at the Riverside Club which surprisingly enough is right on the Rio Grande river. Here's the view from the patio.
One of the Texas Navy boats passed by. 30 Caliber deck mounted guns and 3 300 horsepower Mercurys on the stern. This pictured was borrowed from Marsha who was quicker on the trigger than I was.
LtoR: Paul, Marsha, unknown, Angie and Rick.
The Cardinal results were not what was hoped for so it's back to St. Louis leading the series 3 games to 2. Still need a victory for a trp to the World Series.

Today was visit your friendly dermatologist day. We did some nitrogen spraying and one rather large hunk of skin was removed for biopsy. Results in ten days.
With no ballgame today and a throbbing in my arm from the scalpel and the weather having turned to a cooler 70 degree temperature, I think today will probably be designated as national do nothing day. I'll let you know how that works out.

This says it all.

The wrap up of the week involved a full schedule of football games and I'm happy to say 2 out of the three had a good ending. After watching three games I found little time for anything else, but sometimes that is just the way things are.
There have been a couple more arrivals in the last couple of days including Jule and Virginia as the park population slowly begins to increase.
