Goodbye July!!!!

Here's my take on the month that was....

When the best thing that happens to you in a 31 day period is when the McDonalds drive-thru mistakenly gives you 30 Chicken McNuggets instead of 20...well...you're not looking at the most stellar month, are ya?

July 1: Said so long to valued employee, spend rest of month working hard and trying to determine how to replace...

July 2: Saw my cat for the last time (I just didn't know it at the time)....

July 3: Discover Katie Pickles dead at the end of our street while leaving for church, on, of all days, my wife's birthday.

July 4: Work on a holiday so I could leave work early the next day...

July 5: ....because the kids were returning from a weekend at Grandma's and we had to break the news about Katie to them.

See the developing pattern???

I am not sad to see July 2005 in my rear-view. I look with anticipation to August, and, so far, so good.

But there were good points.....

--Our morning service on July 17th was especially good.
--I stayed indoors during the heat of the day when the mercury reached 95 plus.
--The Orioles finally woke up and realized who they really were....

So, there it is. For better, for worse. July 2005.

And, in closing, July did have lucky winning numbers...

2, 3, 18, 23, and 31.

It was a good but stressful month for me! I always like the freshness of a new month though and the prospects that it brings....
