It’s summertime here in North Dakotaland and temperatures are going to hit 90 degrees once again. We can only hope that the warm weather, like our blustery winters, will keep the COVIDs away. The surge in cases around the U.S. is terribly alarming.
Globally, the show goes on. I’m up this morning trying to enjoy the second Test Match between England and the West Indies. Tomorrow the Formula 1 guys are in Hungary and the NASCAR is in Texas. Next week, the NBA and MLB are scheduled to return and the slate of boxing scheduled for Tuesday night on ESPN is among the best of the summer.
The semester is also looming, there is at least one more book to nudge through production before the summer is over, and I’m supposed to have finished another chapter for the book I’m “supposively” trying to finish.
If you’re interested in what I was up to this past week, here’s a sneak peek at the next book from The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota: Calobe Jackson, Jr., Katie Wingert McArdle, David Pettegrew, eds. Foreword by Lenwood Sloan, One Hundred Voices, Harrisburg’s Historic African American Community, 1850-1920. You can download a copy here.
