Our friend Lee is coming up from Florida in early September for a wedding and wants to get together with us for lunch. We're hoping that he agrees that lunch at Tabor Hill Winery in Michigan will be enjoyable...I'm thinking sautéed duck breast sounds good! Nom nom nom. In the meantime, I got an email from my pal Jimi asking if I wanted to meet him for lunch tomorrow. Done deal, we're meeting at our little Hacienda in our little pueblo at noon! I'm looking forward to seeing my buddy and getting the scoop on the shenanigans at the lab.
Ken and I aren't big fans of opening and closing ceremonies in the Olympics. The spectacle is amazing, but as I watched the smoke blowing across the sky after the fireworks, I had to wonder if we (meaning our global community) shouldn't consider scaling things down a bit. The whole energy consumption thing is disturbing...just a thought.
Now that the Olympics are over, it's time to focus on other sports. Baseball will be going on for a while (Go Cubbies!), and college and pro football is on the way. We're going to have a rematch of the Colts-Bears Super Bowl on September 7th. For those of you new to this journal, or Ken's, I'm a Colts fan and Ken is a Bears fan. Yikes! We both love each other's teams, but not if they're playing against each other. I suspect I'll be breaking out my Peyton Manning jersey, and Ken will be breaking out his Brian Urlacher jersey...stay tuned for a picture!
We're both jonesin' for football...much like these two. I feel your pain, guys!
