This was a crappy day.
I woke up to a vomiting dog. He’s feeling much better now, but it took a $400 vet visit to do the job.
My to-do list was repeatedly stymied by frustrating people and annoying road blocks.
And my evening dog walk, usually my stress reducer, was washed out — literally — by a cloud burst that left me and Rory sopping wet.
Yep, crappy was the word of the day. So this video really spoke to me.
…and puts a smile on my face! Great way to put this day to bed and start fresh tomorrow.

Love Downton Abbey? The ol’ upstairs/downstairs drama?
How bout with some out-and-out silliness?
Add Another Period (Tuesdays, Comedy Central) to your viewing /DVR schedule.
The name alone makes me happy. But the cast — including Michael Ian Black, Thomas Lennon, Jason Ritter, Christina Hendricks and a host of others I can’t name — is game for anything, which makes the show crazy funny.
From what I can tell on Imdb.com, there are lots of great cameos planned, too, so you look forward to that.
Or, you can if you watch.

What a difference a day makes.
Sam Groth, an unseeded player from Australia, was last seen on the courts at Wimbledon in his traditional tennis whites. Nothing to mar the surface except the brand logo.
It is a different story today during his headline match on centre court with Roger Federer.
Note the sponsor patch that has been applied on his right sleeve. There is another out of view on his left arm as well.
Those last-minute sponsorships can earn a player $50,000 a pop.
When you add that to his projected winnings for losing in the third round — it looks that way at this point — Groth could walk away a Wimbledon ‘loser’ with close to a quarter of a million US dollars.
A good week.

I love Wimbledon. I look forward to it every year. I consider it a legitimate response to the question,
“What are you doing July 4th weekend?”

I have never followed an intense exercise routine.
I am a big believer in ‘all things in moderation’ — in both food and physical activity.
But I have recently been inspired to follow a new upper-body strength routine that I think could catch on around the globe:
Donald Trump Pinata Challenge
1. Buy pinata in likeness of annoyingly-ignorant businessman and Republican presidential candidate.
2. Get really big stick.
3. Beat the crap out of that thang, honing upper body strength while reducing frustrations with Trump and flawed political process.
4. Repeat 2-3 times each week.
Note: if you put candy in pinata per tradition, this could reduce positive outcomes of routine.

For a sport with such small balls, golf is an unusually large target.
People who don’t watch it or understand the nuances of the game are quick to dismiss it as boring.
My mother never understood why I watched golf on TV as a young child. But if she sat with me for even 30 minutes, she would soon be ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’ over some of the precision shots the pros could pull off.
And in television golf tournaments, you see a lot of golf. The cameras jump from tee to fairway to green, so you get to see sometimes 50+ different golfers swing the club or putt every 30 seconds or less.
So, contrary to what you might think, there is a lot of action in golf.
In contrast, televised baseball and football games — America’s sports — mostly involve standing around. A Wall Street Journal study calculated that a baseball fan will see 17 minutes and 58 seconds of action over the course of a three-hour game. And the football audience? A paltry 11 minutes per game.
So for pure entertainment value, swing for swing, I’d put the US Open Golf Championship up against a baseball game any day. I’ve watched both, and I feel pretty good about my chances.
