This morning I ventured out after breakfast to Wildwood Park hoping to take a walk before it got too hot. Well, it was already really warm at 9:00 A.M. as I walked out on the fisherman’s pier there and caught a weak lake breeze. For a good ten minutes it felt rather nice as I looked West towards the new Euclid Beach pier now under construction and the skyline of downtown Cleveland shimmering in the haze. When I walked back to the beach though, the heat hit me again and has been the other times I ventured out of my house today going about my business and ordering a frozen daiquiri and my first crab cakes in a decade at the Standard Restaurant on East 185th Street (and both highly recommended).
So much has happened in the week since I thought about writing up a new post. I was originally going to talk about how wound up at, you guessed it, a couple of local Democratic Party functions in my area. Then, it was going to be about all that I heard and read about this week, from Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s retirement to Canadian tariffs, to what I read in the Washington Post. Time just keeps slipping away but that’s only fair. I did manage to get up to the Waterloo Arts Festival for a few seconds yesterday in the broiling heat and took two nice photographs. However, my cellphone is acting up (courtesy of Tracfone) so I didn’t find them in my gallery to download when I looked today. Just as well, I wrote about it previously. Even at noon the street looked pretty busy which is a very good thing for the neighborhood. What’s even better, I haven’t heard of any problems so the overtime Cleveland police have been doing until they get for officers trained is kind of paying off.
Things should be cooler by Saturday but in the meantime another long hot stinking week!
