Art Imitating Reality

After a long career in the Military, I am a little hard of hearing. It started on the rifle range and ended in the Field Artillery. The Master Gardner (aka Head Gardner) is always after me to get my hearing tested. I know what's wrong, I hear poorly in one ear and can't hear out of the other. My right ear is worse because of a concussion and that is side she sits on when I drive. Add a little traffic noise and I can't hear her when we drive without her speaking a lot more loud.

The Olympics are in full swing and yes, I will watch things that I would normally not watch. So far I watched the USA Women defeat Japan in soccer and their is dressage currently showing. I wouldn't normally watch horsing around unless it is in an R rated movie. Now if they could include something like a tractor pull in the horse show, I might watch eagerly. Yes Marv, it was a full pull for that horse from Jamaica. That Clydesdale isn't pretty and jumping that hurdle just wasn't possible but look at that form and distance.

It will be a lot cooler today here in the heartland and we might even get a little rain. I do have a little house cleaning to do and a load of dishes to wash. With a good book and the Olympics, there won't be any shortage of things to do. Hope you all have a great day out there.

MUF (That is MUD to those of you with good hearing)


  1. So you're getting some of this rain? We've been cloudy for a couple of days, but it wasn't till tonight that we got rain, rain and more rain. Glorious.

    Go get tested, MUD. You'll be surprised at the difference it makes to hear again.
