You may not notice it, but a piece of history is gone. We have lived here for sixteen years now. For the majority of those years there's been a basketball goal of some sort in this spot. It's been a subject of irritation sometimes. You always had to remember it was there or you would hit it backing out of the garage. Visitors would always have to be directed around it. But that's not the reason I was undone. There's been lots of shots taken on that stupid thing.
There have also been competitions to see who could get "net". And now???
It's lying on the ground in the back yard.
This last one was a gift from Santa one year. It wasn't one of those on wheels. It had a pole that had to have a hole in the ground.
Now, the hole is there but no pole.
Will it go back up once the driveway is done? I have no idea. I'm thinking probably not.
So today August, I don't like you. You have brought one too many changes for me this year. And for just a sliver of a second I'm gonna stomp my foot and say I've had enough. I'm gonna pout for just a second and then move on.
