SSuiseiseki

good times, good company, and forgotten shades

And so, after a less than optimum start to the day, I wound up heading for Rockville and a backyard BBQ/unbirthday party/Independence Day celebration. It was a potluck, and I had been dithering between bringing a veggie tray, chips & salsa, and pie; in the end I wound up popping for all three and wound up going home with the chips and salsa. It was a good party; met Brenda's parents for the first time, renewed acquaintance with some folks I hadn't seen in 20-30 years who were part of the Dunhams' D&D circle, and ate probably more than I should have. Did manage to stay away from the cake, cookies and pie, though. Lots of good conversation, and I wound up leaving a little before midnight.

Took the long way home around the beltway, since Google Maps was showing southbound 395 as a mess; got home, did my shot and fell asleep. Sugar is okay this morning and am now debating what to do about brunch before I decide whether to go back for my sunglasses this afternoon or wait until tonight. It's supposed to rain sometime today, and is partly cloudy now, but I'm not sure it's cloudy enough for my poor abused rods & cones.

And now a word from Harry Callahan about hot dogs.

“The shootings, the knifings, the beatings…old ladies being bashed in the head for their social security checks…Nah, that doesn’t bother me. But you know what does bother me? You know what makes me really sick to my stomach? It’s watching you stuff your face with those hot dogs. Nobody…I mean nobody puts ketchup on a hot dog.”

- Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) in Sudden Impact.
