A note of concern
What is your favorite odd...
It has been so hot here these past few days. It hit 105 on the heat index yesterday and this weekend was brutal!!! The In-laws are coming so we spent the whole weekend cleaning house. It looks good and got a bunch of projects finished (update Powder Room, hang ceiling fans, put handles on cabinet doors in kitchen). I wanted to get outdoors but it was way too hot to mow and work outside so I waited until early evening and mowed around 7:30 to about 9:00, how did you do that you ask, well I have headlights on the tractor and thank god for that, nice and cool and the lawn got done ;-)
Yes I changed looks again, did not like the dark font on dark background and the dots, lord the dots. Not original, generic Blogger template but I like it and am adding to the sidebar daily.......
1. Are you a dog or cat person?
Yes I know I am a day late and a dollar short. Been drugged up for my Upper Endoscopy (more later), but yesterday was the Anniversary of Apollo 11 and the new Google Maps went all out and brought us Google Moon. Check It Out!!!
In Capital Punishment.
So we went this weekend to see the new Willy Wonka...let me correct that then new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. While they share the same characters and roughly the same storyline Charlie and Willy are two seperate movies. When I heard that Tim Burton was 'redoing' Willy Wonka I was very upset. First off, I am not a big Burton fan, while I do like some of his movies I am not a big fan of 'him'. Second I am so pissed at Hollywood for not coming up with an original idea in the past few years that the last thing I wanted to watch was ANOTHER remake. And while some may qualify this as a remake, I do not. Well made, great acting, great story and an incredible soundtrack make this a don't miss film. If you have seen Willy Wonka then you already know what happens but Burton out did himself this time and created an enjoyable film for all ages. Do yourself a favor and check this one out.
Yes, we stayed up till midnight and got the new Harry Potter book, no we did not dress up or stand in line forever. We showed up at 11:15pm, got a number (222) and found a seat and read a few books I've been thinking of getting. Lights flashed at 12:00 and they started calling up groups of numbers, we were in the car and on the way home by 12:34....not bad at all.
Yesterday a K9 Officer (some will say it is only a dog but I believe as a trained member of the police department it is a police officer) was shot in the line of duty. While on a search that turned into a pursuit, Officer Arco was sent into a shed where the suspect had hidden. The suspect opened fire on police (not the first time he has done this) and struck and killed Officer Arco.
We just returned from Summer Camp, well just as in 7 hours ago but I took a shower and passed out on the bed and awoke to find the boy and wife gone (out to dinner and church). Many a thing occurred while in the woods, both to me and to the world, London got the Olympics then promptly received a big congrats from terrorists, a hurricane, unemployment DOWN, Stock Market bumpy, gas up .30 cents a gallon here and my dog missed me.
My Fellow Americans,
The boy left for summer camp and the wife and I are alone. I will be joining him on Wednesday and have spent the week getting ready for several days in the woods. It's been hot around here, too hot to do anything really, so we have hunkered in the A/C and hung out, movies and such.
