There were also noticeably a lot of bugs. I ate my fair share. The air was still thick with humidity, which is a rarity around here. I'll admit I don't like it, even though it provides free "food". Still, a lovely ride and I won't complain.
More rain was in the forecast today, and I'm actually glad it didn't happen. The ground can't hold anymore.
Meego and I made it to the bowling alley this week. I sign up for free bowling each summer - 2 free games a day. Our scores weren't all that bad. For free, anyway.
In other excitement, a big, fancy, spanking new library opened up a couple of weeks ago, and it's conveniently located about a mile away from our house. I realize this is not earth-shattering fun for most. But since I tutor, and part of the job is scrounging for a place to meet students, this is very handy for me. I broke in their study rooms this week and give them two thumbs up.
In movie news, I was a bit disappointed by The Lone Ranger. Plenty of fun action and, well... Johnny Depp, but it was much too long and I just didn't care about the characters. In my opinion, there was just no buddy chemistry between the Lone Ranger and Tonto, nor romantic chemistry between the Lone Ranger and his love interest.
To contrast, we also watched Lawless, which featured strong performances all around. It's somewhat disturbingly violent, but based on true events, and so that made it even more interesting.
I called and wished my dad a happy 90th birthday, even though I knew he wouldn't be all that happy about turning 90 (that's my dad, I won't get into it). Still, I'm used to it and it was nice to morbidly chat with him.
