Tonight for supper we had a pair of boneless salmon steaks, a ½ a baked potato, an ear of Mike’s corn on the cob, mixed veggies, fresh tomatoes, cottage cheese, and I had a slice of cantaloupe with a dollop of ice cream in it. A cup of coffee finished it off. It was excellent. However there was no swimming today. <Sigh>

It is a bright clear morning with sunny skies and cool temperatures. It looks like a very good start for their Palmerton Community Festival starting this evening. This morning the blood glucose is 132 and the weight 194.
We went for our full walk this morning. It felt good walking with Queen. She said she had a better night and seems to thing things are getting better. I an glad to hear that.
We both had to laugh as we approached the corner at 3rd Street and Columbia Avenue. A young boy was running up the hill. As he was about 15 feet from the top he called for us to wait. Were we going to cross the street at that crossing? We replied "Yes". So he scurried out into the middle of the street and held traffic for us. We thanked him and told him that he was doing a fine job. There is one young man who takes that job seriously. Many of them don’t. I don’t know him but I suspect he has a good attitude for this life. He should do well.
I want to go downtown soon but then I want to get this web page out early today. After I got home I cut the grass but not before reversing the blade on the mower. I suspect a new one is needed. As usual it was cut a while and rest awhile. In fact last week Queen told me that neighbor Al Long asked her if I was all right. She explained it was my loaf and work method of doing it. That was nice of him to ask.
Queen is cleaning up around the outside of the house. She is taking off dead flowers and other debris about the place. She trimmed all the boxes down at street level as well. As usual she saw a lot of people passing by. Shirley, Gail and her dog stopped by and chatted with her. In the mean time Butternut took great and loud exception to Queen petting Gail’s dog. They bet I was lamenting the lack of swimming. They were correct.
Neighbor Mike cut and trimmed his lawn as well. They he cut down the Chinese chestnut tree growing in front of our garage along with a bunch of our weeds. I think he was shamming me into doing something about it. He beat me to it. Ha!!
I saw this sign at the festival set up yesterday. It makes quite a statement.
The poor "Froggies" !! A sign of the times!!
A bit of research on Google quickly told me that my memory has not failed me. Mark Twain held the French in considerable disdain so the above is nothing new!! Ha!!
In certain public indecencies the difference between a dog & a Frenchman is not perceptible. October 1878 - February 1879
French are the connecting link between man & the monkey. Feb.- Sept. 1879
M. de Lamester's new French dictionary just issued in Paris defines virtue as: "A woman who has only one lover and don't steal."
- quoted in A Bibliography of Mark Twain, Merle Johnson
France has usually been governed by prostitutes. Feb.- Sept. 1879
Please love one another. Mom and Bob [Queen and Bobby]
