July 19, 2018* Euro loses a full cent!* Gold sees an $11 gash this morning!Good Day… And a Tub Thumpin’ Thursday to you! I’m hoping to recharge my batteries early this morning, so I am able to participate! It was a very late night for yours truly, but one that was well worth it! Delaney Grace was on stage at the Muny! If you’ve ever been to St. Louis in the summer, you’ve probably heard or had the opportunity to see a production at the Muny… And there was my little bundle of joy, dancing and singing on the stage! She was GREAT! And she’ll be back on stage for nightly presentations of ANNIE for a week! The Kinks greet me this morning with their song: Sunny Afternoon…Well, I think I had better be getting my things in order to walk away from all this… Recall I told you a couple of weeks ago that if things didn’t work they way I described them that I would have to really “retire”, as my credibility would be shot!

Or whatever the letters that are used to describe someone with no ability to focus and sit tight! I did see this morning though that 10 home runs were hit in the game that ended up 8-6 AL… Bob Marley greets me this morning with his song: 3 Little Birds… Don’t worry, cause every little thing is gonna be alright…My Monday Pfennig was titled: Could We All Just Get Along?

Well, my busy day yesterday, got to me about mid afternoon, and I was wiped out, took a long nap, and was then ready to watch the Home Run Derby… I’m reminded of a HRD of years ago, when I was recovering from my two major cancer surgeries, and my colleagues, Chris, Mike, and Christine, came to visit with me… Good memories… One of my doctors told me yesterday, that I’m his best patient, and that he loved it when I came in! WOW! My grandson, Braden is coming to spend the day with me… Just me and Braden, I wonder how this turns out! HA! Seals & Crofts greet me this morning with their song: Summer Breeze…Well, yesterday’s trading was a lot of nothing..
