Blocked Up, Sunrise and Odds And Ends

Rantoul, IL.

63 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Sunny. Highs in the upper 80s. Light northeast winds.

Jim didn't feel too well yesterday. His head was all blocked up, and had been for a couple days, so he took one of those allergy tablets. Those things make him really tired though, so he ended up sleeping quite a bit.

In between taking naps and falling asleep while sitting on the couch, he went outside a few times, watched a bunch of the Olympic games on TV and finished transferring addresses from the old GPS unit to the new one.

You know, one of these days, I'm going to see if I can get Jim to take some photos of the sunrise from here in the CG. I'm facing to the East, the sun is just coming up and it's really kind of pretty. I think he could get some neat photos if he just walked over to the other side of the park.

Do you remember me telling you that we had a good rain shower come through here Saturday night? Well, I found out that Louise had her rain gauge out and when she checked, there was just over 1" of rain in it!!!!

That should help a little. : )

Linda needs to make a few important phone calls today and Jim needs to renew my and CLT's license plates, ( He can do that on the Internet), and either today or tomorrow, they'll need to go to the grocery store to replenish some items they're out of.

Other than that, I don't thing there are any other plans.

Did you know that the oldest ever Olympian is Oscar Swahn of Sweden? He was 72 years, 281 days old when he competed at the 1920 Olympics in shooting.
