Hello August.

Good morning from Northside…

Early this afternoon we ordered Domino’s for lunch…

I like Domino’s. I think they make a good, solid pizza pie. And Genifer loves their cheesy bread.

we sat out on our back patio and watch some of the Olympics.Track and field was on tonight…

And then we switched over to the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final: Mexico versus the United States…

The United States beat Mexico 1-0 to lift their seventh Gold Cup. And they beat Mexico for the second time in less than three months!

What a great Sunday. 😀🌄🍕📺⚽️🏆❤️

And after aaaaall, you’re my wonderwall.

Minnesota United played San Jose Earthquakes in the quarterfinals of MLS is Back



And the Loons burst the Quakes bubble 4-1


Cue Wonderwall! The Loons are still undefeated on the season and they’re marching into the MLS is Back semi-finals. They will play Orlando City for a spot in the tournament finals Thursday night on ESPN2. 😀⚽️❤️

Combine this win with Arsenal’s FA Cup win earlier in the day, and that’s what I call a very good sports day.

A pretty good Saturday.

Today is August 1st. Can you believe that? For being pretty much confined to home since the middle of March, this year is going by really fast. I guess time flies regardless of your level of activity.

This morning started out as another grey and overcast Saturday but at least it was cooler and not as humid today. Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made these delicious banana bread cookies…

We were pretty lazy this morning…

After Arsenal lifted the FA Cup, we drove out to the far-north suburbs of Liberty Township for a cookout to celebrate Alyssa’s birthday. When we were leaving Northside, the skies looked really threatening…

And it rained the entire way to Liberty Township but once we got there it was very pretty outside. The sun came out and there were the biggest fluffiest clouds…

When we got home, we dodged more Northside raindrops and took the dogs for a walk…

And good night from Northside…

There was supposed to be an almost full moon tonight but there were waaay to many clouds. Still, it was a pretty good Saturday. 😀🗓️❤️

2020 FA Cup Final.

Today was the final of the FA Cup. My favorite club in the world, Arsenal were making their record 21st appearance in the FA Cup final. Arsenal are also holders of the record for FA Cup final wins at thirteen. They were playing London rivals, Chelsea in today’s final. At the end of last season, Chelsea demolished Arsenal 4-1 in the 2019 Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan. Hopefully, the match would go much better for the Gunners today…

Leading up to this year’s FA Cup Final, Arsenal America took a look back at all thirteen Arsenal teams that lifted the Cup and in the process became FA Cup legends! They started with the very first Gunner squad to lift the FA Cup in 1930

And moved through all thirteen squads ending with the 2017 side

There were some neat graphics and photos on social media leading up to the match…

The match was all knotted at the half…

A brace by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lead Arsenal past Chelsea…

With the FA Cup win, Arsenal booked their spot in next season’s Europa League. It will be the Gunners twenty-fourth consecutive season of European football. Mikel Arteta’s side finished eighth in the Premier League table. Their win knocks Wolves out of Europe next season and forces sixth-place finishers, Spuds into the Europa League qualifying round to play an extra three matches before the tournament properly commences. And that makes lifting the FA Cup trophy just a little bit sweeter…


I hope Aubameyang stays with Arsenal for a long time to come…


I’m so happy Mikel Artera is leading Arsenal now…


Best handshake ever…


Fourteen. Come on you Gunners! 😀🔴⚽️❤️

And I saw this graphic about Nicolas Pepe…


After a slow start, I think he’s going to be a really good one. #COYG
