Not much exciting to write about lately. It is mid September and the temperatures are still high but there are other signs that summer is ending. The leaves are starting to fall and I think the grass is starting to grow slower. I have been busy with meetings in Church, mostly about finding a way to keep our church from failing. I watched the news for a couple of days of Hurricane Ike as it headed towards Texas. I remember Hurricane Carla in 1961 when I lived in Corpus Christi, Texas, so I have an idea what the people on the Gulf coast can expect from Ike.
This weekend the annual air show and Blue Angels demonstration will be held at Oceana Air Station. I have not gone to the air show in a number of years as I dislike the large crowds. Instead, I will probably go to the Heritage Arts Festival & Civil War living history festival in Chesapeake. I have never been to it and it sounds like a lot of fun. I received my package from the KSC with everything I need to be able to see the space shuttle launch in early October. The date is not yest set due to weather delays but it should be around October 8. I will be flying down on October 6 and am not sure exactly when I will fly back. I only have a one-way ticket due to the fact that the launch day may change.
Can’t think of much more to talk about. Things have been kind of boring here. I have had lots of time to read and swim so I guess I can’t complain. I am looking forward to fall and cooler weather so I can get outdoors more often. It has been too hot and humid lately to even take Max for a walk. Got to go get ready for church now.
