No Big Deal

Rantoul, IL.

66 deg clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 90s. South winds 5 to 10 mph.

I didn't want to make a big deal about it and I don't  want you to think you need to send cards or anything, but yesterday was my birthday. : )  Yep, my Newmar Corporation Label says that I was manufactured on 07/29/99 as a 2000 model, so that makes me 13 years old!!! : (

Wow!!!! I don't feel that old!!!!

Jim and Linda didn't go shopping yesterday. In the morning, Jim got busy changing the tube in his bike tire. It wasn't a job that should have taken very long, but as he was putting the wheel back on the bike, he noticed a problem with the chain and had to work on that before he could put the wheel on.

In the afternoon, both Jim and Linda got interested in the Olympic games on TV and really didn't feel like going shopping, so the decision was made to go today, instead.

We still haven't had any rain here in Central Illinois, and every thing is getting drier and drier. The threat of grass and field fires is climbing and in some areas, there is a ban on any kind of fires, including charcoal grill fires. Of course the crops in the fields are suffering more and more, and if we don't get rain pretty soon, there won't be any crops left to harvest. : (

Did you know that the five Olympic rings represent the five major regions of the world – Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceana, and are interconnected to symbolize the friendship to be gained from these international competitions? The colors were chosen because at least one of them appeared on the flag of every country in the world.
