today I am .... zucchini

I had a great idea for what to write about today, but I'll be damned if I can
figure out what it was. Maybe I should go nap instead.

For some
reason, going to the boatyard, washing and waxing the double, eating breakfast,
and walking all around the airport next door, which is having some sort of block
party thing for the people who live there has left me very tired. I can report,
though, that block parties are a lot more interesting when they include activates
like dropping flour sacks from a plane, trying to hit a target, and trying to land
exactly on a given point on the runway. I'll be practicing landings myself
tomorrow morning, but I don't think I'll be ready for the landing competition any
time soon.

There are some very, very pretty aircraft at that airport.
Also some houses with virtually nonexistent landscaping -- it's clear where these
people place their priorities.

Speaking of things in the sky, I
finally remembered to look for the amassed planets in the western sky. Whoever
said they would be in line apparently flunked first-grade art class, but there was
a sort of bright V formation near the moon that I think was them.

I'm considering shopping for patio furniture or bathing suits this
afternoon. I probably look better poured into the furniture, though. And I
wouldn't have to worry about whether I was tan enough for it. Meanwhile, off to
veg some more.
