Everyone is going to think I’m crazy, if they don’t already, but I’m having a lot of fun writing about forts. Oh, yes, these coastal defenses are far more than forts. But I am calling them forts till I get to the Nike missiles. Why did I pick forts? They are just architecture, many just large purpose built brick structures that have evolved from defensive use to innovative peaceful uses.
Tuesday swimming with G before dawn takes the pressure off going to school these last few weeks. Then it’s package myself and my lunch, and I am off to the last classes. I’ll really miss them. I get concrete and careful editing here….folks take time to read and make suggestions. Then it’s home to write. Yesterday I worked most of the afternoon gathering and pasting basic info down that I can work from later.
Dinner….we were late. Every traffic light was red and laughing at our attempt to pick up Captain Poolie on time. The new North Park Sipz was a huge hit. No parking, same menu, far better décor, and a marvelous steampunk motorcycle as it’s centerpiece. The captain is just now staging steampunk as the focus of her next show at the museum, and she was interested. We had some comfortable conversations and laughter fit for a king or queen. Delightful indeed.
Home to our New Summer Tuesday Movie Routine instead of a double header NCIS. Something brought “Reds” to mind this week, and I picked it. What fun. It’s a well done light movie with a terrific cast. No matter how many times you see this one, there’s always a new twist to capture your attention.
Today I am off to Books, books, books in hopes that the boss and the head pricer will have returned leaving me to just deal with the books. Then it’s home to forts and fun with revetments until dinner. You can’t beat revetments before dinner.
