Looks more like a large creek, or as we say where I grew up, 'crick'.

Thatís an island close to shore. Itís wider than it looks in the photo.

We have a professional hockey team (no baseball team, BTW). What more do you want?

A baseball team would be nice. Then when I come up to pal around we could take in a game.

Yeah, it was kinda close from what I gathered. His wife's sister is a high wattage Dr. In another state. She had to intreven on his behalf. He sat in a waiting room for 4 hours. Apparently there is a 5 hour treatment window? He was close. He's going to be on a pump for weeks.

I would have swooned

Only 40 miles today but I got a slice of pepperoni @ the turnaround. It wasn't quite as hot out as predicted but I drank 4 big bottles, 1.5 fountain Cokes and 2 glasses of water when I got home and I think I'm still a little dehydrated. Gonna go drink some more now.

Kudos to the homies for taking it easy on me.

There's the Smokies in nearby Sevier County (exit 407 for you I-40 travelers). Their logo (below) is the only redeeming feature of the team.

They're working on a stadium/development near downtown to move the team back. Public money for baseball. Government waste its worst. #P&R

Delete it.

If you can skip a stone to the other shore, I say it's a crick.

Is this a solo trip, or do you have traveling companions?

Listening to a classic while I cool off.

I'm doing just fine.

One of our coaches asked if he and his son could come to practice tonight, although they were both exposed and are waiting on test results.

And, of course you said, "Sure, it's nothing to worry about. Just a Democratic plot to get Trump out of office."

Another rainy day. Oh well, at least tomorrow is Friday.
