JAM packed week... with Brutus, OSU golf, fair...

I cherish the days I get to spend with Buckeye.  I was painting my fairing for the motorcycle this week and I brought Buckeye to the garage.  We don't have a yard at our current apartment... and he LOVES to just lay in the grass in the heat.  We had fun waiting for the paint to dry after each coat.
Alright... So Saturday I helped my brother unload four and a half motorcycles out of his minivan.  None of them run, so he will be fixing them up and selling them. I was sweating a LOT. I put on a fleece to keep from greasing up my white shirt. To the lady walking by on the sidewalk asking "what's the weather tomorrow?" I hope you saw Marcus's face. 
Monday I went home to the Great Darke County Fair.  My sister won seven ribbons for her dresses and other clothing she designed, including three first place ribbons.  I also ran into Roma Hicks, who was my babysitter when I was a toddler.  My grandma and grandpa drove up from Cincinnati and we all visited my other grandma so I couldn't pass up the chance to get a photo of the entire group together.  Fun day for sure!
Tuesday I was invited to the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship media day golf outing at Ohio State's golf course.  We played the Scarlet course and it was very challenging.   Fun day... again.
My wife challenged me to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  Here is the video.  It was quite chilly, and despite any people who think it is a wasteful fad, yes we still donated to find a cure. People who don't care about those around them don't plan on making the world a better place. 
I love filling in on the morning show... and I was lucky enough to be on the morning show when Brutus was visiting.  So much fun.
So the fairing is done.  Above is the before and after.  The silver matches pretty darn close.  It doesn't quite have the same metal flake, but ehhh...  Really happy how it turned out.
Today's sunset was amazing.  The chance for rain this weekend will be less than the last few days.  The rain this weekend will be spotty and best chances for any rain will be in the afternoon with pop-up isolated showers and storms.  The heat and humidity will be sticking around through the middle of next week.  Highs will be in the low 90's and the heat index will feel in the mid 90's with the humidity.  A strong cold front will bring our temperatures back down by the end of next week.  Have a good one!
