It feels like the millionth day in a row of 95+ degrees here in Our Nations Capital. It hasn’t rained since June. I am ready to poke my eyes out. I like open windows, a cool breeze and temps not exceeding 72 degrees. If you throw in a nice pattering rain, it is Nirvana.
Is it Fall yet?

Continuing the Summer of Fun, I saw my college roommate Tuesday. She was in from California visiting her Mom. It was a real treat, since I don’t see her very often, as in maybe 10 times in the last 30 years. Her latest CD is outstanding - check it out.
I picked her up and we spent a very enjoyable afternoon on the beach and went out to dinner. It was a long drive home, definitely worth it. It brought back lots of fun memories I hadn’t thought about in decades.
Thirty-two years ago, the summer I graduated college, we took off for Rehoboth Beach, Del. It was 4th of July weekend; we had no place to stay. Within a day we had landed jobs and found a tiny apartment. It was a fun summer.
The universe has really aligned for me this summer. I have seen almost everyone I have ever loved. It occurs to me that if my life was a sappy movie, this is where I would die.
Instead, I think I’ll just wait out the heat. I'm glad this is just Real Life - which is occasionally full of unexpected gifts.....
