A Midsummer Day’s Dream

Despite being extra-busy with work, I still have time for the outdoors, which included making this image of a recent evening thunderstorm on our humble patch of green in Oklahoma.

Among my nerdy hobbies that few readers will appreciate is amateur radio. This image shows applying weather-sealing tape to an antenna connector prior to mounting it on the roof.

Thanks for your patience, Team Muh. I’ve passed from the doldrums of July to the mad rush of early August. In the past ten days I’ve worked seven sports team media days, a couple of football scrimmages, the annual Byng-Konawa Back-to-School softball tournament, and I’ve shot tons of pre-back-to-school images.

I’ve tried to squeeze in some hobby time and Abby time, but there are only so many slices in my daily pie. Thankfully it’s been dry outside, so there hasn’t been much yard work.

I am shooting well. The Ada High School softball media day was the funnest media day I have ever covered, both because the girls were so happy to see me but also because their new head coach arranged for them too have Knockerball® games after the shoot.

Once the softball girls got inside these things, hilarity ensued.

When is it time for grapes and golden honeydew melons? All the time.

Abby decided this week to cook, including last night’s vegetarian enchiladas for me and hamburger steak for her, and peach cobbler for dessert for both of us. It’s also been another great summer for fruit, particularly my discovery of golden honeydew.

Abby makes enchiladas for me with Morningstar Farms veggie crumbles in place of ground beef. They are unbelievably good.

This is a Honey Kiss melon, which looked good at a good price. I haven't had any yet, but I am interested in making some kind of joke about the fact that it came in a net: "Wow, now you can get fruit directly from the net!" only less lame.

  1. Glad you had a great summer. Love the thunderstorm photo. I’m thinking you could develop a side career shooting food photography. You make every morsel look delicious.

  2. The knockerball does sound like fun. I assume it’s very similar to NFL uniforms of the future.

    “Back in my day, billion-dollar quarterbacks only wore helmets, faceguards, rubber mouthguards, shoulderpads, rib protection, cups, leg pads, and high-tech shoes. They were *real* men back then, yes sir.”

  3. I know what you mean about slices in the daily pie. I’ve found that between work and family life, I have no time for hobbyist photography or even reading. If I could ask for, and expect to receive, anything at all, it probably wouldn’t be money but more hours in the freaking day. Anyway, that’s what this post reminded me.
