Best laid plans and all. 

The party is/was tomorrow - but we will still be in the same unstable weather pattern , so Neil made the executive decision to move it to MONDAY afternoon. Hope we got the word out to everyone who had planned on coming - I ll be simi ready tomorrow with some drinks and snacks just in case.

What happens when you send Neil to the store for supper.

They were really good !

plus 2

Did nothing but work in the yard today, mowing, raking, etc. Getting ready for Neil's big extravaganza come Sunday. It is hot - Georgia hot, so rare for up here , and not great for the party. These delicate northern folk wilt easily.

Will be a little bit of a hassle with me and the food for 50 or 60 people - but I will figure something out. Just hope we dont get a thunderstorm.

Re - Boot

 I know I have been a crappy blogger, I have just been at sixes and sevens. Late spring allergies have kicked my butt with the coming of sudden summer. Really, we have gone from down comforter on the bed to the AC on in a week.
 Add too that this weekend is Neils iris party so lots going on to get ready for that. ( LOTS )
 But there was a tower of pink flowers at Wegmans this afternoon
 And Honeoye Falls is all decked out in full red white and blue
 I took dinner over to a St Johns family who.. I dont even know, needed dinner....
 Then late this afternoon took Koda over for a romp with Fletcher

Things will be back to boring normal soon .

We forgot to watch this on Saturday night, so picked it up tonight after Game of Thrones.

What an amazing film full of some of the best performances that you will ever see anywhere. Brian Cranston will get an Emmy for the same role that he got his Tony for. Do seek this out if you can - we had to watch it on Apple TV on the HBO to go ap thing.

LOTS of Winder in this one, Richard Russell playing a huge role in the early LBJ years.
