9:30 p.m.

At 9:18 p.m., I heard a Scissor-grinder Cicada sing around our home. That's my first audio observation of a cicada this season. It's a little later than normal by a few days, but it's not surprising, based upon the cold winter and below normal temps in April, May, and the first half of June. During my morning walk with Barney today, I saw a cicada exoskeleton on the sidewalk a few blocks south of our home.

4:28 p.m.

Temps were in the upper 70s to low 80s. Still decent humidity, but today is much nicer than the previous week. No 90-degree day today. Yesterday was TOL's 10th day out of 11 where their temp reach at least 90 degrees. I think that other parts of the Toledo area had at least two other days that did not hit 90. Regardless, the humidity has been high for the past seven days, making an 88-degree day feel miserable.

Today is our 18th wedding anniversary. We spent the late morning and early afternoon watching Gabbie and Dominic at CP and Brad's house while they were out doing other things.

12 years ago, I bought my Birkenstock sandals at a store in Royal Oak, MI. That date was 7-7-7. I still wear the same Birks. They have been resoled multiple times at a nearby shoe repair store called Macino's. Unfortunately, the cork sides of the footbed have cracks that might prevent any more resoling. I need to have them resoled. I should have taken better care of them. I bought cork protector or sealant stuff from Macino's several years ago, but I never used it. He
