sirk night

I landed yesterday at 5:15 a.m. or so, drove home by 6:15 a.m., fell asleep by
7, woke at 8:45 a.m. just in time for my 9:00 a.m. conference call, made it to the office at 10 a.m., and had a productive work day. During lunch I saw birds
at Breckinridge Park---barn swallows and a scissor-tailed flycatcher.

Last night I watched the Douglas Sirk movie "Magnificent Obsession" and the Douglas Sirk 1959 remake of "Imitation of Life". The remake of the latter was about as enjoyable as the Claudette Colbert original. Both films are remarkable for their time, even though each is a melodrama laced with Hollywood plot devices.

The weather now is not only hot during the day, but very warm and a bit muggy at night. August is arriving right on time. I have a lot of work to get done today.
