Well today is fellow blogger Melanie's birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELANIE. I didn't know how Melanie is but fellow blogger Bobby says she is 49 so we will go with that, I am sure she will correct us if we are wrong. I have posted a nice birthday photo of Melanie since all my flattering birthday photos are on no our old computer my sources are limited. Also I understand that fellow blogger Al may have got a new phone, can anyone confirm this. I did go up and watch the Colonials volleyball in action last night against L.C. Bird, they boys team won 3-0 & the girls team fell 3-2. The boys team has only lost one match all year and that was to Thomas Dale. My arm is a bit sore this morning because I threw a baseball for the 1st time in about three months. It looks like it is going to be pretty warm the next few days with high around 90, where is Fall at. MICKEY

Never make predictions, especially about the future.

1890 - A U.S. National Park was established in Central California. It was called Sequoia National Park after the giant redwood trees that grow there.
1933 - America’s favorite cowboy, Tom Mix, was heard for the first time on NBC radio. The Tom Mix Ralston Straight Shooters continued on the air until June 1950.

1965 - Willie Mays hit his fiftieth home run of the baseball season, making him the oldest player to accomplish this. He was 34 years old. Ten years before, at the age of 24, he was the youngest man to accomplish the same feat.

Simple desires
For every desire you have, no matter how far out of reach it may seem, there is a part of that desire, at some level, which can be fulfilled right now. If you desire a shiny new sports car, ask yourself why. Don't be satisfied with an answer of "who wouldn't?" Make a real and sincere effort to uncover the deep and driving connection between the desire and your true self.

What if, at the heart of it, your desire for a sports car was driven by the simple desire to feel the cool wind in your face? All too often, we are ashamed at the raw simplicity of our desires, and we seek to hide them in complexity. What an enormous amount of needless effort that obliges!

Whatever you desire, go for it as directly as possible or you'll run the risk of getting sidetracked by all the interim necessities along the way. Most desires are simple and wonderful. Acknowledge their true essence, and you're well on your way toward their fulfillment.
