The weather was beautiful here today. Plenty of sunshine and not too hot. Perfect day for working in the yard, and there’s the rub. We spent too much time working on an endless list of repairs and improvements that, as usual, required more than one trip to Lowe’s.

By the time the sun was going down I had just enough energy left to toss a couple of steaks on the grill. It was a really nice day but one that left little time for radio. I made a handful of contacts in the SKCC WES whenever we took a “break” but I’m going to need some late night radio success to have any hope of making 50 contacts this month.
