Today must have been recovery day because I have no idea what I did all day. A trip to the grocery store was in order first thing this morning right after the refrigerator was cleaned and bleached. It seems as though some wanna be genius emptied the box and left town with the doors shut. With the 100 degree temperatures I was able to grow quite a crop of potential penicillin. The rest of the day was spent waiting for the ball game which didn't start until 9 pm because the Cards are in San Francisco.
A trip to find an laundromat was the order of the day. With the absence of management in the park they have decided to lock the laundry room except for the 6 hours a week the park manager in in the park. Very inconvenient, but I found a wishy/washy just a few blocks away and got the job done in short order at a cheaper price than I would have paid here in the park.
Cardinals win and head back to St. Louis where games can again start at a decent time.
Independence day 2014 a time to celebrate our freedoms. If I were in Hannibal I could watch Americas Home Town swell from 18,000 people to over a hundred thousand folks as Hannibal celebrates National Tom Sawyer Days. In addition to what's listed in the Wikipedia article a mud volleyball tournament draws 64 teams to play in pits of Mississippi mud. Tom Sawyer days has been listed as one of the top 10 4th of July celebrations in the country.
