We had a nice time at the Fair last night. It was very crowded for a Sunday night, more so than it has been in past years. We ate dinner, I had grilled chicken in pita, then walked around the indoor exhibits before covering the outdoor part. We always walk through the rides to see what new ones have been added. Later on I ate an elephant ear while Frances and dad had ice cream. Then before we left they got funnel cakes and I shared part of those. 

Good thing going to the gym was on the agenda for tonight after all that fried dough. After doing a quick last time mail post and publishing my page I will call it a day at my desk. I did get some work done from the time I got home until dinner time.

I hope you have a great week.

No gym tonight, I had to go over to the library and pack up the remaining stuff from the book sale. Fortunately we sold almost everything so there was very little that needed boxed up.

I was back home by 7 pm. After I check my mail and do a little work I will go out and play some ball with Malcolm. I finished up the Valerie Malmont mystery, Death Pays the Rose Rent last night. I really enjoyed it. I have not picked out my next book from my stack as yet.

Guess that's about all the news I have for tonight.

I decided to start another Laurie R. King mystery, A Monstrous Regiment of Women. King's character, Mary Russell, meets and becomes a tutor under the infamous Sherlock Holmes. These Victorian mysteries are very well written although Mary comes on a little strong as a feminist at times. 

Other than that not much to write about again tonight. Today was grocery store day making it almost dinner time before I got home, unloaded the groceries, and gave the dogs their outdoor playtime. During dinner I watched last night's NYPD then retired to my office for the usual work and e-mail check.

Have you noticed I have not mentioned the work RAIN lately. It has actually gotten a little dry on the ground surface since hurricane Isabel came through several weeks ago. I think it has only rained once or twice since then. The last couple of time I have mowed it has been very dry and dusty. The spell was broken today with moderate rain showers on and off since I left to go to work this morning. As a matter of face it was so dark when I drove down Reynolda Road that I checked both my watch and my truck clock to make sure it was 7:10 am not 4:10am. Between the rain and heavy clouds it was really DARK.

Since I had Friends meeting today at 4:30 I worked until 3:30 instead of 3 then went straight to the library. After we finished up at 5:45 I came by and picked up Bob to go out for dinner. By staying a half hour later today I can leave a half hour early tomorrow.

We got back home at 7, walked the dogs, and I came back to my office. Other than checking my mail and getting this post up I have not other plans for this evening. Too tired to do anything except play with the dogs and do some reading until bedtime.
