- California is burning once again.
- The Democrats delivered a great convention.
- Lucy got her stitches out.
- We've had triple digit temperatures all week long.
- My insane father is going to vote for the party instead of for the country. How angry I am I ?
On a positive note, we're going to our grandson's 5th birthday party tomorrow. My parents started a college fund for him, and my husband made a generous donation to the college fund I have set up for him. That. Kid. Is. Going. To. College.
I had fun buying him presents today -- a Playdough set that he can stuff and extrude gooey stuff, a set of magnets with cars, trains and planes, a book about Penguins (which he loves).
I remember well my 5th birthday party at the San Diego Zoo. I had a hissy fit and had to go sit in the car for my time out. My dad drew all the invitations, with zoo animals on them. I thought then, and now, that was the coolest thing. Wasn't my dad a man of great talent? It was a big deal, quite an event, which was unusual in my family. Friends and family gathered under the picnic tent. A giant cake. 1962. Holy Cow.
I have to leave you with a great quote from HRC's acceptance speech: "A man you can bait with a Tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons."
Word. Have a great weekend.
