Simple things are good.
Took Kyle to soccer practice.
Ran 5 miles in San Souci. Stubbed big toe on left foot and twisted right ankle. Why ??
This day in history "Faced with an Aztec revolt against their rule, forces under the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes fight their way out of Tenochtitlan at heavy cost. Known to the Spanish as La Noche Triste, or "the Night of Sadness," many soldiers drowned in Lake Texcoco when the vessel carrying them and Aztec treasures hoarded by CortÝs sank. Montezuma II, the Aztec emperor who had become merely a subject of Cortes in the previous year, was also killed during the struggle; by the Aztecs or the Spanish, it is not known."
Gavin and I go to Lowes to pick up 20 bags of mulch. They make it from skid to car to side yard. Bring on the garden beds when we get some cooler weather...or tomorrow, heat or not.
Pizza for dinner.
Luke and I go to West Lake tonight. We stop at bait and tackle to pick up live bait. Little minnows and try our first attempt at catching large mouth bass. Success, we each land a handful of small bass. I get a perch as well, and Luke gets a pickerel.

New Hampshire becomes the ninth and last necessary state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, thereby making the document the law of the land.
By 1786, defects in the post-Revolutionary War Articles of Confederation were apparent, such as the lack of central authority over foreign and domestic commerce. Congress endorsed a plan to draft a new constitution, and on May 25, 1787, the Constitutional Convention convened at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. On September 17, 1787, after three months of debate moderated by convention president George Washington, the new U.S. constitution, which created a strong federal government with an intricate system of checks and balances, was signed by 38 of the 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the convention. As dictated by Article VII, the document would not become binding until it was ratified by nine of the 13 states."
This spider is playing possum...How long has it been hanging out in the pool ?
Luke scoops it up and we take a closer look. Holy crap, its big and it starts to make a break for it.
Other less exciting activities of this really hot day are getting new running shoes, bathing suits, and cleaning the front closet...too many shoes.
Sue is at Peggy's apartment with he siblings. We receive some nice bouquets of flowers, and the Bartoli's bring over dinner, a large variety of Mama Lombardi's classics....very thoughtful and needed. I don't have to cook tonight. Thanks to all of the friends and families for their condolences.
Sue gets home from Brooklyn late and exhausted. She eats some chicken parm., eggplant parm, penne, salad and mozzarella and tomatoes...shortly after she falls asleep on the couch.
I go for a late run. A swim in the pool.
