I've been wondering about the expression "The Dog Days of Summer" for quite some time.
After continually asking FD where the expression came from he told me in btw-fashion the other night that it comes from the constellation Sirius the Dog rising and setting with the sun during July through September.
I easily could have looked this up on Wikipedia but I would much rather hear from FD. It trust his sources more.
We're finding ourselves in the Dog Days of Summer with many visits to friends' and families' places and visits from family and friends. It's wonderful catching up with our loved ones and enjoy the last few weeks before the semester begins. However, it doesn't leave much time for blogging.
Quickly, though, a list of good things to check out from our adventures:
My bro turned 30! Celebrating with him was awesome!
Bell's Brewery: Great microbrews & healthy bar food for a change.
Food Dance: I could live there and eat there all three meals a day every day. And 2 out of 3 ain't bad, right, Gary? Thanks for taking us there, man.
Perrysburg Farmers Market: Buying almost all of our food sans dairy at the market has been food heaven. I'm dreading winter.
Luginbill Farms: The BEST lamb chops we've ever had. Find them at the Perrysburg Farmers Market on Thursdays 3-8 p.m.
Bass Pro: Awesome if it's your thing. An hour there is good by me. FD needs 10 hours.
I feel like I'm forgetting a whole lot of good things and related stories. Oh well...
More adventures to come as well as some reflections on finding old friends online, writing, random thoughts on the direction of my blog, etc.
