The summer solstice has happened and it is hot and dry here in Oklahoma. Of course we don't complain. It is Oklahoma after all. It'll cool down the second week of September, maybe. I don't really mind the heat too much. I have got used to it.

|Years ago, my father and I tracked down Geronimo's grave out in the middle of nowhere on the sprawling US Army Base at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. We got there right at the last light of day.|
The Apache chief Geronimo was born on June 16, 1829 in what is now Arizona. He died February 17, 1909 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He fought the United States and Mexican Armies for years. He finally surrendered in 1886 and spent the rest of his life as a prisoner of war under some pretty loose restrictions. Check out more here.

|A "Cowboy Church" in Antlers, OK USA|
Here in the United States, summer is generally meant to start the week after Memorial Day at the end of May. School is out, the swimming pools open, and families start hitting the road for vacations and reunions. Gasoline over $5 a gallon is going to put a damper on that but we are flying free after two plus years of lockdowns and staying home.
I hope everybody is safe out there. I'm continuing to think about Ukraine under the brutal invasion. I'm also praying that the USA can come to some sort of measures to help prevent mass murder. Enough is enough. A couple hours after I put this post together (on Wednesday) we had a mass shooting event here in Tulsa at a hospital with four innocents murdered and the shooter killed himself.
