Next week I must be absent from my office for two days due to an out of town trip for family stuff, so I'm starting to feel the strain of an active list of things to do. Fortunately, this weekend will give me a chance to get some important things done.
I get a lot done when I work on Saturdays by nature, largely because the telephone rarely rings on Saturday.
I need to get a good novel going again. I was reduced this morning to reading the Texas travel guide, which is fascinating reading, but not as well plotted as I like. Tomorrow night we go to a high school play in which my partner and I's secretary's son is starring. It sounds really interesting--about a 19th Century hearing impaired sports star. I went tonight before my bar meeting to downtown Garland to buy the tickets, in this little movie-theater restored into a playhouse. The high school kids were so friendly and helpful, even if they weren't sure how to do advance sales. Later, over dinner, my partner recalled seeing movies often at that theater. I asked him if he had seen Ben Hur there, but he said that his cub scout troop headed into Dallas to see Ben Hur, as it would have taken forever to reach Garland.
Snow is predicted tonight, but hopefully none will accumulate. I am ready to be writing posts about giant swallowtails and blooming thistle again.
