2018 Life Logs, Day 35—Raining Tears for Our Patriots
Date: Sunday, February 4, 2018
Weather: Nice Morning, Rain Since 1 pm; High 46, Low 38 degrees F
Location: At Home in The Studio, Falmouth, MA
I just drove home from Heather and Jed’s after having a great dinner and then watching Super Bowl. It has been raining since early afternoon, but it was pouring on the way home. I felt a bit like the heavens were raining tears for our Patriots. We Patriot fans have become accustomed to winning, but, honestly, the team that played the best game tonight won. It was refreshing to see the young Philadelphia Eagles quarterback play with amazing control and ability and Philadelphia’s defense was definitely on tonight. Sam, Jonah, and Ollie had to go to bed before the end of the game, and I know there will be tears in the morning when they find out that the Pats lost. But life will certainly go on and we’ll be back out there next year cheering on our home team.
The weather this morning offered enough warmth and sunshine to send the boys and myself outside to play after a big breakfast. Ollie brought his little John Deere tractor with him for the overnight and all three boys took turns driving it around The Studio parking lot and the parking lot next door that belongs to MacDougall’s Marine Service. This is a pedal tractor and the longer your legs, the harder it is to pedal, but even tall man Sam still enjoys doing this. And the MacDougal’s huge parking area with no traffic this time of year is perfect for this. It also afforded Jonah lots of room to kick his soccer ball around. Since this parking area is right on the harbor, sea gulls and ducks gathered thinking we might provide food for them. The boys got the hint and talked me into providing snacks for our fair feathered friends. The boys headed out onto the docks and had a great time feeding our fair feathered friends. Heather arrived about this time. She had run the five miles from her house to mine and she joined in the fun. She runs five miles and acts like it is nothing. Those days are gone for me, but I am so proud of her for working constantly to stay in tip top shape. Go, Heather!
