Ducks, books and 100 degrees

What has happened since I last posted..well, not alot.   Everyone is on vacation.  Which makes work a bit slow...but frustrating because when the CEO is out everyone does their best to push the limits.   I'm beat.

However, that didn't stop me from going to a bookclub meeting tonight.   I got to meet a great author, Karen White, for the second time.   She's the kind of woman who acts, looks and probaby is always put together.   Hair was perfect, cute outfit with the coolest cuff on her wrist.  And she's a really good author.  

The only problem is I just found out about the club...went to it without reading the book.   And what does a book club do?   Discuss everything including the ending.   And Karen sat next to me so I had to have her sign the book that was thrust in my hand as I walked in.  (I'm a co-dependent book buyer).  

I also bought next month's selection "Lost Horizon".   The author won't be there because he is dead.  Yes...it's that "Lost Horizon".  I've seen the movie..and I think I read the book many moons ago.  

I also  bought September's book..but I'm too lazy to get my bag to give you the title...I'll do that soon.   Of course I have about a dozen books I need to finish. 

Joining a book club for me is like an alcoholic going to a wine tasting party...not good.

My duck story is simple..I was going to work and drove past the AFB when three teenage ducks were waddling in a row into the four lane street..where the speed limit is 45 mph.   I swerved as did the people behind me.  I hope they made it.  But there was nothing on the other side of the road but a closed up car dealership.   I think they were better on the base. 

And it is freaking hot here.   99 degrees..which usually doesn't happen for another month.   I hate to think what August will be.   And it will rain this weekend which means no lake or pool for me.  

Yuck.

Have you seen the video with the ducks "marching" with a group of cadets? Too cute.

I think I need to find a book club.

I haven't I need to go look for that video. Have you seen the one where the hippie guy sees the double rainbow? It's adorable as well. I just love youtube.

You should join a book club. It gets me out of my comfort zone and is making me read what I wouldn't normally and that's a good thing.

I used to HATE Atlanta in August. They don't call it "Hot 'lanta" for nuthin.

Stay cool, darlins.
