Sunday. Marita Beth left very early today to begin her long, lonely trek to the North for the Summer. There are so many times & reasons I wish I could pack up and go with her, but corporate (read: fiscal) responsibilities keep me in Texas. She gets to enjoy much cooler weather overall while I get to enjoy the typical Texas Summer heat.
That heat, luckily, broke yesterday with a "cold front" that came through. That front brought with it a little bit of rain, too, so although it was cooler (89° F) temperature wise, the 85% humidity made it feel as though it was in the mid 90s when we took the field for our regular Sunday night football match. I only played a few minutes, perhaps 15, of the game due to a hamstring strain. I chose to not play after straining it so that I can heal and play out the remainder of the season. That decision afforded me the opportunity to take a few photos. This one I got near the end of the match of the opposing keeper & his domain silhouetted against a brilliant fiery sky.
