Frosty morning revisited



Late night drop in temperature,

chilly as hurried sleepy body

into car, using defroster.

The frost on all surfaces,

noticing white crystals on

roof of the Branch Rickey

Recreational Center.

Traveling with boy,

one who loves

bacon and ‘cakes.

Hot cakes, pancakes,

butter and maple syrup.

* Coffee a “must.” *

Ask grandson if okay

to stop to capture

white coating,

knowing he

will say,

“Yes, Nana.”

    • A fun way to wake up your senses, Ian. There was a foggy mist or coating over everything. If the boy had not been with me, I may have captured a few more places. Hope you and Ana have a wonderful weekend!

    • Well, sometimes it would be nice to see a dust storm while I am safe inside, Ian. Thanks for bringing a whole entire subject up to do very and entertain me. πŸ™‚

    • Yes! So much fun and I like the local place, where I order a side of hand-cut home fries “loaded” with onions and cheese: Yummy, Beth. Hamburger Inn diner. Really it’s true name. πŸ™‚

    • Hurray for Drew!! You know how much I like when someone knows the details! Some of Jackie Robinson’s family came to Delaware, Ohio for the premiere opening of, “42.” My family managed to get tickets and went. Branch Rickey ended his career here, teaching and being part of Ohio Wesleyan University coaching team. πŸ™‚

      • Now, that I didn’t know. Thanks. I often feel that Branch Rickey is the forgotten man in the story. Major league baseball has plenty of tributes for Jackie Robinson but too little for Rickey. Thanks for sharing this.

    • I was happy to share this and I wrote a post about the opening. This was before I included pictures! They gave us programs and tickets, too. I felt Harrison Ford played a great Branch Rickey, Drew.

    • It has been chilly and foggy in the mornings and we had frost end of May, so not that long ago. . . 2 weekends ago. I was so shocked when we had fog on June 2nd and 38 degrees at 6 am, so not that strange, Marissa. πŸ™‚

    • Diana, thank you for telling me you can picture my grandson and me, including the addition of “cute” to it! πŸ™‚
      On June 2nd, we had 38 degrees at 6 a.m.! This forced me to sort through my end of May photos. There on two Saturdays ago, I took this photo. Micah and I were getting up to see a bit of frosting on the rooftops, while he was wiping sleepy sand out of his eyes. πŸ™‚ And yes, the “boy” was treated to his pile of butter-laden pancakes and I ordered my “loaded” hand-out home fries with onions and cheese. Now, hoping you have a deliciously delightful weekend, D.

      • Pancakes are our morning staple too when the Overlord comes for the weekend. We’re supposed to hit 100 degrees today and break a record – weird weather. Hope your weekend is perfectly beautiful, Robin πŸ™‚

    • 100 degrees on June 4th!! My goodness gracious, D. We went to 80 possibly on Saturday. It rained on Sunday. I just ran out of my ingredients or I do make silver dollar sized pancakes for the grandies. Your overlord sounds like a bright and creative child, Diana.
      On Sunday, my DIL, their combination family of 5 kids (baby Hendrix in a stroller), my daughter’s 11 year old son, Skyler and I went to see “Alice through the Looking Glass.” My son works weekends as a chef. My daughters both work weekends, too.
      It was a nice highlight of the weekend since my Saturday date was sick. So,no second date, yet. . .

  1. This photo was refreshing, like ice cubes in a beverage. We have seen highs in the 80’s-90’s and lows near 68, and a little cooling down would be nice. We Yankees (which I am told includes everyone not from The South) are not used to running the AC every day. Cheers to you and your sweet grandson. – Mike

    • Mike, glad to give you a dose of “cool” and am verifying the fact on two Saturdays ago, this actual event occurred. On June 2nd, the weatherman said it was 38 degrees and lo and behold, my neighbor Gray Chapel had a thick fog over the top of the turrets.
      On another subject, I keep forgetting to tell you, my dear Filipino friends (Felda, Mae and Mary Jane) are on third shift and my friend Melvin is in reclamation department now. This is why I have had non-work related posts. I miss the days of contemplating a “Robin written” situation comedy and I will always remember your positive reactions to those posts! Thank you. πŸ™‚

      • You shared many entertaining stories about your fellow work colleagues. I guess I will have to settle for ‘reruns’ of your sitcom, at least until they return to prime time. πŸ™‚

    • So glad I caught the contrail which added to the rather simple sky presentation, Dan. I am glad you let me know this makes Faith smile. πŸ™‚ Now that the weather is changing, I imagine a father-daughter hike or exploration will be coming up soon. Take care and have a great weekend.

    • So true of some of the flowers and new vegetable plants, Anneli. On June 2nd, we had a 38 degree morning with fog. I had to look for this photograph to tell my actual frosty morning outing with Micah, two Saturdays ago! πŸ™‚
