Lots of great baseball was had this weekend in Omaha

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Florida vs Texas Tech Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

It is summer and I am having a hard time wanting to spend it inside on my computer. I have a family that likes to be outside, a ton of yard work in a fairly large lawn, and limited amount of time to do everything. When I finally come inside at night I usually wind down and go to bed.

Also, the fact that I usually am done around 9:30-10:00 pm doesn’t help either. If I have daylight then I’m staying outside.

I suspect that my flakes will continue to be short in terms of opening for a bit. My apologies to those who read these. Come back for the others contributions as they seem to crank out well written works for prose on a regular basis.

Anyway, on to flakes...
