Right now, at 8:15 AM, the morning is very comfortable, embracing, and peacefulness is only disturbed by the waste retrieval vehicles that semi-robotically empty our waste containers. Now and then, one of our resident cardinals pipes up.
The Sisters, Bailey and Harrigan, are being kept busy by offending squirrels that dare cross the utility wires in the easement, and Chief joins in, agedly rising for a slower chase, but often has no clue what he is chasing.
Tonight is Soaring Sounds at Centerville High School’s football stadium and I could not be more excited. The temperature is expected in the lower 90s and I dread that part. However, the excitement of seeing the drum and bugle corps is exhilarating. It was 1980 when I saw my very first DCI show and I can still recall the rush of excitement. It’s never stopped.
I finished listening to my biography of John Quincy Adams and began listening to a new biography on Henry Clay. Clay’s biography is pitifully dull and I am thinking I may give it another 30-60 minutes of listening before making a decision on whether to can it or keep going. It’s only eight hours in length, nothing like the 30-40+ hour biographies I’ve listened to, recently. Even while working and listening at the same time, my attention does not hold to Clay’s biography. And, it could be the reader’s voice. Some are terrific while others would bore a deaf person.
That’s about it for this morning. I am sure there will be more to report following the DCI show this evening. In the meantime, do make it a great day!
