Ducks, books and 100 degrees
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.
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.
