Call it the "Summer of Daft Punk and Robin Thicke," but for all practical purposes it is now over.
If you think of summer as being a state of mind rather than a season, for us it began on May 24, when our oldest son graduated from college, and ended exactly three months later, when we headed home from a trip to drop Son #2 off at college in San Diego and visit Son #1 in Long Beach on the way home.
So now the Christmas decorations are in stock at Costco, and Starbucks has begun selling its pumpkin flavored drinks. Which means something, although I'm not sure what.
Because things have been busy on both the work and personal sides of the ledger, the blogging has been non-existent for most of this month. That, hopefully, will change soon.
