Escape to Cinderella Man

My husband and I went to see Cinderella Man last night. I needed an escape from this humid heat. It is a great movie. I’d say on the order of Sea Biscuit. I don’t care for so many fight scenes but after all that is what the movie is about. The one line that stood out to me was when the reporters asked him why he was going to fight again and he replied, “for milk”.

Will I Swear?

That wonderful little mister I have counted on to help me keep cool has clogged. The hole is so small, nothing will fit into it so I can clean it. The directions said to “simply remove nozzle with an ordinary pair of pliers and soak overnight to remove debris”. I tugged and twisted, it wouldn’t come off and I almost swore and I don’t swear (but I can’t guarantee that will be the case by the end of this hot summer.)

Terrorists in Lodi, CA?

What? My old stomping grounds contain terrorists? I used to shop at the Walmart the next road up from the searched “suspected” terrorist’s house. My longing to return to that beautiful, quiet area has been “paused”. Ok, you can hit the play button again. A few terrorists don’t change how wonderful the area is, just a short drive to the ocean, Yosemite, Mammoth, Tahoe and Reno.
