Calends of June How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before its June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?

-- Dr. Seuss
June 2nd Again Denny T and his Bass fishing group from Illinois are here, again they are having a successful fishing trip, and again they are going to have a delicious fish fry tonight. Geez, those fish dinners are good!
June 3rd At approximately 2:00 AM on May 10th (almost a month ago), the sun rose in Barrow Alaska, and it hasn't gone down since. The residents will continue to have 24 hours of daylight for nearly 2 more months when, on August 2nd the sun will set shortly after 1:00 AM. They will then experience their first darkness in almost 3 months, which will last only until the sun rises again an hour and twenty minutes later. That would be interesting to experience, wouldn't it?
June 4th Love is a funny old thing, isn't it? We're all like little kids chasing butterflies. You see it. You want it. You grab for it. And there it is.........all squished up in your hand.
June 5th through 8th The following is an e-mail I received on June 10th after leaving a blank in the Chronicles for June 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th:

Jerry, Jerry, Jerry........

Does the LBLR calendar go from June 4th to June 9th? Just because you didnít add anything to the Chronicles for those days doesnít mean the dates never existed! For instance........

June 5th there was a tropical storm in 2001 that cost the state of Texas over $5.5 billion and was the costliest storm in US history! The storm's name? Allison! And it was Finnís 4th birthday! [Ah yes, named after appropriate. And happy birthday to Finn!!!]

June 6th, 1944 was the landing in Normandy. [Yes, a very important event.]

June 7th was Monday. [Good one Colleen.]

June 8th was Kevin and my 25th Anniversary [Congrats!!!!]

See........there were events that happened!!!

June 9th In honor of some guests from Germany, the Bundesflagge flies over the LBL flag! Click HERE. We have now had guests from Canada, England, Germany, China, and Tasmania (Australia). By the way, I'm only counting people who actually live in those places; people who are from other countries but live in the U.S. now, aren't included in the list.

Dave K has a birthday today, and he's even older than Brian.
June 10th A toast to the memory of Injun Joe is in order. He was a good friend who died two years ago today. Click HERE.

Last year, after a month of nice spring weather, June 29th became cold, windy, and rainy. Weatherwise it was not good.......and it stayed that way until well into September. It was, without a doubt, the coldest summer in anyone's memory. Yesterday the weather was great but today is cold, windy, and rainy, and the indications are that it'll stay like this for at least a few more days. One surely hopes that this is not the start of another summer like the last one. (By the way, the Farmer's Almanac predicts the 9th through the 12th to be sunny and warm. What's up with that?)
June 11th The members of the annual Charles City Invasion arrived two days ago and filled the resort, so the summer is now in full swing. Well, not meteorologically or astronomically of course, but other than that the summer is now in full swing. Instead of their normal one week stay, they'll be here for ten days this year.
June 12th A Palm Warbler showed up at LBLR this morning. But alas, it is not a new bird. A Palm Warbler was spotted at LBLR several years's number 59 on the LBLR Bird List. Click HERE.
