Indians and Rainbows


Yesterday was the end of a pretty satisfying week. As a result of missing games while recovering from her knee surgery Donna had several unused Indians tickets to exchange in addition to her regular tickets for Monday and Wednesday nights. I went with her Monday, but I am hard pressed to sit through more than one game a week. She ended up going with various friends on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. The Indians won each and every game, why didn’t they do that early in the season? The Ohio State Buckeyes also won yesterday, but not convincingly enough to keep them from dropping another point in the rankings to number 14. Of course the Browns continued with their routine string of losses.

I have felt pretty well recently and with Donna out at games I took advantage of unoccupied time on Friday and Saturday to again do some more boxing. Friday I was able to recover 3 of 6 boxes from the “Rainbow” series in Brunswick, plus an additional unrelated (W.W.J.D.) one.

Then on Saturday a new series of 3 boxes in Sheffield Village was announced. Saturday afternoon while Donna went to the Indians game I went after those boxes. I had hopes of being the first finder, even though it was unlikely after others had the opportunity all day on Saturday. I wasn’t but they are very pretty boxes.

I am now making plans for recovering those remaining in the “Rainbow” series plus several others in Brunswick. Perhaps I can do it later this week.

In preparation for the coming winter I am also beginning to make plans for boxes to plant near home and at the beach. Making a good group of boxes requires developing a general theme, selecting the subject of individual boxes, writing the description and general clues, selecting an image to use, carving and assembling the stamp, making a log book, preparing the complete box, locating a specific place to leave it, actually planting the box, then finally preparing and publishing the specific clues for other letterboxers to locate it. I am almost looking forward to the winter.

I was also very pleased to be able to re-establish contact this week with my one and only truly close friend from Junior High and High School. It is going to be difficult to get together with them as he and his family live a long way from here and neither of us has much extra money.

I have volunteered for another Ham Radio public service event (A Marathon) in Akron next Saturday. I need to get ready for that and I have to be there at 5:30 Saturday Morning… how is that for dedication to a cause.

Sounds like you have been busy and have a lot going on!

Can't wait to hear more about this friend! Reconnecting doesn't always have to be in person. Some of my best communication is through email on a daily basis.
