Happy Birthday, Chuck! I couldn’t find a picture of you I was sure you’d approve of posting here (hey, one of the pictures had you with long curly hair…), so here’s a picture you took in NC. Hope you’re having a great day.
We had a good day with the Boojums yesterday, chatting and what not, stuffing our faces at our favorite restaurant, Karavalli (mmmmm), walking around the neighborhood and — wait for it — shopping for books at the Book Barn. I only bought three — and we will be boxing up many more to take back to sell. It was hard to say good-bye to Perilous Cheryl and “Mr. Honey Balls” at the end of the day (“pardon me while I say ‘Poppycock’!”).
Thanks for TWO JARS of the world’s best pickles!!
Yesterday I saw a grey heron over at Buckingham Lake, sitting hunched on the bank, waiting for some unlucky frog to come along. Very cool! Today other than the usual ducks and snails, I saw only a turtle pancake on Euclid. 😦
Off to the park soon for fun and games, part of a belated Lughnasadh celebration. So far the weather looks like it will stay pleasant. If you don’t have anything to do, go idle with some juicy Peter Cook gossip.
