The brutal heat of summer is more than half-way past now. We are looking forward to the cooler days of autumn, when it will be pleasant to be outside, and when our monthly electric bills will drop back to sane levels, since we won't have to keep all our airconditioners running night and day.
For some unknown reason, neither Sweetie nor Grump slept too well last night. Despite this, Sweetie dragged Grump off to Bible study tonight, along with Kuya. Kuya had a great time playing with Char and her little brother Phil, but Grump struggled to remain awake. Which was a shame, because the message from Bible study tonight was a good one: don't be too overconfident in your plans, or anything about your life, because it could all be taken from you in an instant.
Whenever we say we're going to do something, or go somewhere, we should at a minimum have in our hearts an implied, "God willing". With all the potential disasters of life that could fall upon us each and every second, it's a miracle that any of us last longer than a day, let alone a long lifetime.
Let's end today with a pic of Grump's brother, (who these days is a high-level bank executive married to a higher level executive, living with their kids in London), doing something or other, someplace or other. (Don't ask, don't tell?)
