It's 72.9 degrees here at 4 pm. Days like this in August are worth noting and filing. Perfect for walking the dogs, riding the bike (to the Parthenon and back), hanging in the hammock, and (only briefly) pondering the Monday morning moment, now coming fast into view, when I'll be tempted to echo Older Daughter's lament: “GOODBYE SUMMER!!!!!” Then we'll see if I can really practice what I preach, and haul that summer state of mind back down the highway to school in the 'boro.
But for now, as we prepare to enjoy one more Middle School performance of "Thoroughly Modern Millie," it still feels like endless summer... or "Saturday in the Park."
