Our version of Memorial Day

I got about 4 hours of sleep, got up breakfasted, and went out to garden while it was still reasonably cool. A couple of hours later Duchezz got up, breakfasted, and joined me. Jane stopped by to get her flashdrive. Gardening continued until, walking over to say something to Duchezz, I realized that my bad leg was a dead weight. Told Duchezz what I was going to, then mentioned the non-responsive limb, to which she said, "Well, you're done for today." I concurred, gave her the short list of things I was going to do, but now couldn't, and went inside to shower.

She had mentioned that all she was interested in at this point was finishing up, air conditioning, and a cold beer. I concurred, so after she'd showered we headed off for Utica. We had lunch at 99 (because they have awesome air conditioning and Duchezz's favorite beer on tap), then went to Dick's to use Duchezz's coupons to replace our Coleman stove for Pennsic, washed the car, got ice cream. Then home.

Where I learned to hate Windows 7 even more than I thought I would. Actually, I was optimistic--everyone said it was sooooo much better than Vista. Well, yeah. In the same way arsenic poisoning is better than cyanide poisoning. I'd like my XP back, please. (And since this is my work computer, and I don't get to choose my operating system, any "Get a Mac" comments will be followed by banning from future comments. ;-p)

But, Duchezz also made a strawberry rhubarb pie (which was dinner), I made a pot of decaf, and we watched The Good Guys. I don't know if I like it, but it was diverting.

Best of all--it was a gorgeous day, so while we were out we saw:

1) a beautiful bright blue Mustang convertible,
2) a sexy, cherry red Mustang convertible,
3) a gorgeous, red, vintage Chevy Impala ragtop, with two equally well-preserved middle age males in the bucket seats in front, fishing poles sticking out of the back seat, pulling into the Gander Mountain parking lot.

Wow! A real summer car!


Perhaps not popular sentiments, but they are mine.Collapse )
