There were only a handful of days at Mudville last year during which the lack of a.c. seemed unfortunate to me; another 3 or 4 like this and I'll have tied it this year already. Hey---it gives me a reason to be glad I'm going back to work tomorrow. I am philosophically in favor of experiencing the seasons more than we do in our climate-controlled world of to-day, but a few days of feeling sapped like like those Labs on Main Street yesterday and I'm itchin' to pay 9 bucks to sit in a big air-conditioned space for a coupla hours while they screen anything at all that doesn't include Sean Connery.
My houseguests, alas, have departed. First time I've hosted the J-Bean. He seems to've had a fine time. I was the #1 item on his What I'm Going To Do This Summer, so I hope I've sent him home with enough lasting memories that he'll have something to put down about it, should the first grade open with the old classic essay Charlie Brown & friends always had to write. Loved having J; glad his mom's coming back solo soon, too.
I have a little excursion in the near future myself in a little more'n a month. Am looking most fwd to it. Gives the Linus-was-right boost, too (talking of Chuck & co.).
