Finding “Lucky Stones”….my latest obsession.
Regular, old-fashioned, rec baseball! No weekends, no traveling and lots of winning (for once!)
Watching and listening to my son play at every type of venue imaginable!

|Beiber vs. Jazz – I choose Jazz|
Speaking of venues, we visited an interesting venue in the BottleHouse in Cleveland Heights. We listened to original jazz.
There were people of all ages with pinball and board games available.
This can probably be viewed as politically incorrect or bad parenting, but I thought it was fun and creative….
These kids were clinking beer bottles with quarters making all kinds of music!
Yes, a woman after my own heart. She was embroidering!
This place was neither bar or restaurant to me, but more of a gathering space. I also noticed that there were NO tvs. It seems I can’t even go into a nice restaurant anymore without tvs in my face. Even when I try not to look at a tv, I find my eyes drawn to it. We were discussing if this type of venue with jazz and other types of music could exist in my outer ring suburb versus the more artsy and culturally diverse “heights.” We concluded our area is just too “conventional.”
This was attached to my son’s arm. It is the American Dog Tick and we are pretty sure my son got it walking in the tall grass behind our home – except he found it a day later. It had not burrowed in.
Oh, here’s a bright spot.
My baby won’t stop growing!
That’s a peek into our summer. Needless to say, my “midsummer’s night’s dream” is to have some sleep! How is your summer going? Are you shopping for school supplies?
I can’t believe summer is almost over, although in this heat I can take the end of it, especially the days I have to walk to the Post Office. All the rain has made it one of the pretties summers though. I always loved the diversity of Cleveland Heights. And as for your air show, it reminded me of the National Air show I used to see from my yard in Bratenahl. Loved to see the Blue Angels in formation.
Have a fun and relaxing break.
We have had tons of rain too! It does look like you are sneaking in lots of fun:) It does seem like certain areas are more artsy and supportive of creative endeavors. I wish we had some great artsy spots in our newish area of town. I always tell Tommy there is not much charm here in the burbs.
