Kentucky Summer Begins

June 21 kicked off the first day of Summer and by that, the National Geographic has a nice article about the Summer Solstice and this day in history.  It’s only been 9 days since the beginning of Summer and I have to say I celebrated the longest day of the year in style.  Spent most of the day rocking at WebMedley under new management, played golf with Bypass Rental owner David Culton, and topped the night off with some Mexican food and hanging with my dogs.

June brought several events to the calendar.  Father’s day, my brother had his colon removed to rid him of colitis, the NBA Draft picked four University of Kentucky and John Calipari players Brandon Knight, Enes Kanter, Josh Harrellson, and DeAndre Liggins to continue their basketball careers, I took a trip through the flat lands of Missouri that were flooded in May and surprisingly a great portion has been planted, and we have finally finished our home improvement project.

Tomorrow marks the first day of the third quarter and the beginning of my birthday month.  I’ll be celebrating the last year of my 20’s with an initial trip to Tybee Island for a little rest and relaxation!  Half a year has come and gone by and I am looking forward to finishing up 2011 with as great a second half as the first.
