Yesterday was hot and humid but no rain... well, perhaps a light shower somewhere other than where I was, which was working. Today's going to be different. The ariel flood watches were posted yesterday. Temps are supposed to be very warm (though not hot), and the region is supposed to be rife with humidity.
On and off storms will take our already slow business to an even slower level. As long as they keep paying me, I don't mind. In fact that's what I tell people who complain about how bored they are because business is slow slow. "Be happy," I say, "they could send you home in order for them to save money." I work with people who depend upon their part-time earnings to make their lives comfortable.
I talked to my friend Betsy last evening who just returned from her first ever cruise. She loved it. So I suggested that since she now has her passport, she could travel to Greece with me when I go. Her comment: "Can we take a boat?" I told her we'd probably have to fly. When I do go, I will probably try and build my own itinerary using available day tours. That's what I did in Paris and it worked out well.
So I'm clearing off pictures and files off three old laptops that I have (one which still has Windows XP) and while it's fun looking at this old stuff, it's more difficult than I had imagine. Software has changed so much. So many things are not compatible. Anyway, here's a 16 year-old picture of me holding my very first Cannondale bike.
