The first of June is the official start of summer; although, it’s been hot, dang hot, since May 19th. I follow the meteorological beginning of summer, on June first.

The above photograph was taken on 5/5/2019, by my youngest brother's wife. New flowers are on Mom and Dad’s tombstone. That's good.

The above image includes the oldest daughter of my youngest brother and his wife. This was an outstanding ladies middle school basketball team! Mrs. Appalachian Irishman and I are proud of you, dear niece! Great job!

The above photograph is in the master bathroom. The black Timex travel alarm clock is on the right. On 5/28/2019, I replaced the triple-A battery, to keep it running. It had been so long, since I changed the batteries, that I momentarily forgot how to change them. I thought that I needed a new travel alarm clock, but I figured out how to replace the batteries. The alarm clock still works! Timex takes a lickin’ but keeps on tickin’, just like me!

Two other items are portable radios. I switch between news-talk and classic rock stations, while cleaning up in the morning. The decorative items are Mrs. Appalachian Irishman’s beach sand, shell, and scented candle, which I allow in the master's bathroom.

I took the final photograph, above, on Thursday, 5/30/2019. It's an example of many fly killin's that I’ve done over the decades! That fly is a goner! I remember, over a decade ago, having a fly killin’ contest with my youngest brother. We were at the homeplace. I killed 22 flies in one day! I think that was the record!

We go through life the best that we can. I’m still here. My permanent and much better home awaits me. “Git ‘r done!”
