‘Poor’ DHL. ‘They’ made his life ‘unpleasant’ during his rather short life; he dying, from TB, aged just 44. As with so many others he is more revered and appreciated posthumously. That is a shame. So, on September 11, his birthday spare a thought for DHL and his indubitable brilliance.

“Indian Summers” Season 2 This Sunday, September 11, 2016, On PBS, Right After “Churchill’s Secret”.

We watched all of “Indian Summers” Season 1 though we weren’t that impressed with it. It was OK — but it could have been so much better given the setting and material. BUT, we will still record and watch Season 2.

Churchill’s Secret” that precedes it looks to be real good.

Devanee As A Part Of The Alton Central School (ACS) Team Takes Part In Her First Cross Country Meet.

This was Devanee’s very first sporting event at Alton (not counting the skiing).

She had been avoiding sports but this year, now that she is back at ACS, I insisted that she did something. Though I have tried she refuses to run with me. So she is still getting into the swing of things with this running. IF she can build up her endurance she should do quite well because she has the build for long distance running.

Yesterday was brutally hot.

The meet was at the Laconia Middle School which is right by Opechee Park — and some of the run (which was twice around the same 1 mile course) was on the banks of the lake. That was pretty nice. To my amazement none of the kids, despite the heat, hit the water. I would have, on the second lap.

A lot of teams participated: Laconia, Inter-Lakes, Winnisquam, Belmont, Plymouth, Barnstead, Gilford etc. The total field counting both the boys and the girls had to have been close to 200. It was impressive. It was well organized.

They walked the course to begin with — which I gather is the norm for all meets. So in that heat, 80F, they first had to walk 1 mile before running it twice.

Though I was dressed to go out to dinner, with Laconia mayoral hopeful Ed Engler, I walked the course — because I can’t stand around doing nothing. I had run 2.25 miles earlier in the day, so I would end up covering the same distance as the kids (though I ran up Prospect Mountain Road, with the elevation).

Devanee, given that she has only been running for less than 2 weeks, didn’t do that great. But she finished. That alone was good.

One of the Alton girls, an 8th grader, whose name I do not know, came in 2nd. She was impressive. She even led the field (for the girls) at one point. She has a good action. She will do well. IF she got some personal, scientific coaching she could win some of these events.

The Alton coach, Alan Barrett, who is a marathon runner (and ran in this years famous Boston Marathon), is very good and committed. He is not a teacher at the school. He comes in just to do cross-country. I have talked to him a few times now. Very nice person. I am glad. Very supportive of the kids.

They have track meets every week now. It is unlikely that it will ever be as hot as it was yesterday. I assume it will be more or less these same teams every week. Will be interesting to see how the kids progress.

Stay tuned. Next week is in Gilford.
