The day was 15 hours and 22 minutes of sunlight.

We are slowly and imperceptibly moving towards the shorter days of Fall and Winter.

Rises Sets Day Length
Sun 5:19 A.M. 8:28 P.M. 15:09

13 minutes less each day already....

less time to check the coop for eggs...

less time to feed something...(cows, horses, chickens - take your pick- there are never enough hours in the day...)

July 10 is the 191st day of the year

There are 174 days remaining until the end of the year.

Interesting things happened on this day...

In 1890 Wyoming became the 44th state.

In 1985 Coca-Cola Co., bowing to pressure from irate customers after the introduction of New Coke, said it would resume selling its old formula.

I remember that last one!

July 10 is also known as the day we cut a 20 acre hay meadow.

Tomorrow we bale if all goes well and the rain stays away.

I drive the rake that gathers the hay for the baler, so I have a date with the grass and a hot drying sun tomorrow.

My chariot awaits
