Costco and dinner with Paul and Mary last night, always a lot of fun. We ate Brix again, but ate inside, so Paul and I could watch the last holes of the US Open golf tournament. After we ate dinner we went next door to a new Frogurt, a new frozen yogurt shop. I have tried many times to eat regular yogurt and even frozen yogurt but do not like it. I was willing to give this a try and I am glad I did. At this shop you dispense whatever flavor you want into a cup, then add all kinds of toppings, then take it up to be weighed for the price.

I am reqading Cannan's Gate by Kathryn R. Wall, a Bay Tanner mystery that I bought on our trip to Hilton Head. I have been waiting for the library to get this one and her new one that just came out. But, like a lot of the authors I read, they stopped getting her books several years ago. One of the museum gift shops we were in sold autographed copies of all her books in the series except the newest one. Since I like to buy books at places at travel that worked out well.

Typical summer weather. Last night I went to the Y. It was a scorcher of a day with temperatures reaching the high 90's. While I was at the Y the local news station was showing severe weather in the counties west and nothwest of us. I decided it was not worth trying to beat the storms to mow after we ate dinner. Around 7:15 I took Colin for a walk and stopped to talk with the neighbors for 25 minutes or so. It sprinkled once but that was it. I came in to check the weather and those nasty storms has died out before they got here.

Today I left work at 4:15 to come home to mow. It is not nearly as bad as it was yesterday, 89 degree's, feels like 91. Nothing but a few green blobs on the radar but this time of year storms can form all of sudden in a matter of minutes as has happened here before. Even with the dry weather the grass is still growing enough I need to mow every five to six days.

I am reading a new author, Emily Brightwell writer of the Mrs. Jeffries Victorian mysteries. I picked up an omnibus, Mrs. Jeffries Learns the Trade, that is made up of the first three books in the series published in the early 90's. Mrs. Jeffries is a widowed housekeeper for Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard. What everyone does not know is the secret behind his success in solving crimes is due to the sleuthing skills of Mrs. Jeffries who also enlists the help of her house keeping stafff. Witherspoon inherited the large house and staff after his aunt died. Being grateful for what he has, he and Mrs. Jeffries run a rather relaxed but efficient household. As you may guess, their pretty light in nature.

The folks and I leave in the morning for a short bus trip to Chattanooga, TN. The Mrs. Jeffries will be the perfect light reading for the trip both literally and figuratively. The omnibus is a large trade sized making the three books fit into 500 pages so it's pretty light and easy to handle.
