Peppers at 10, which seems low.
It's up well over 90 degrees, or as they say down South, a nice cool fall day. This is why I can't live in Texas. Hooray that I recently bought a house with central air. Regardless, I've spent the day productively. Out running errands in the heat and being sure to include stores near the Gratiot "It's Not A Cruise This Year" classic cars show. Got home and hung a bathroom mirror, two blinds, a paper towel rack, and ten doorstops. Success! On a hot summer day like this I don't need the latest from a tiny little beachside nanobrewery, I just need a simple Bell's while I listen to "Coast of Carolina".
Tell us all about it if you're having a better day than that.
It's a slow Saturday, hopefully there will be a Hello Post tomorrow afternoon for Luiji Vilain. In the interim, I saw on Harbaugh's Twitter that he spent his lunch break at Pretzel Bell, carving a block M into a table. It reminded me of the time that I carved my initials/grad class into a tree near the duck pond on North Campus. I'm sure some of my fellow MGoVandals also left an indelible impression somewhere on campus. Anyone care to confess?
Watching the Tigers, drinking a few Oberons, and researching our next National Park trip.
What's your favorite National Park? Least favorite? Just read this 538 interesting article on how the NPS has never been more popular: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-national-parks-have-never-been-more-popular/
Like many, I have a goal to hit all 58 National Parks. My stretch goal is to accomplish that by the time I turn 40 (10 years... god, I'm getting old). But, Alaska and Hawaii will make that tough.
I'm new to the NP-craze and I've hit some of the big ones, but not many: Smoky Mtn, Arches, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Everglades, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Rocky Mtn, Grand Canyon most recently. Just 49 to go! Hoping to hit California this fall for a few; maybe Cuyahoga since it's so close.
My favorite was easily Zion. I'm a water guy, in general, and hiking the narrows was so fun. Angel's Landing was fun despite my relative fear of heights. I'll definitely go back. I barely remember much of Everglades; I was a kiddo.
Atop my list to hit include: Glacier, Olympic, Crater Lake and (believe it or not) Death Valley.
