On a Warm August Evening
My Monday nights are usually spent writing a post for Blog Dumps Top Sites Tuesday meme, in which we offer Two Thoughts on Tuesday. You can usually find me sitting in my recliner, TV on in the background, trying to string two thoughts from my day into several hundred reasonably entertaining words. Last night, I had the Olympics on until gymnastics started (I had no desire to see Gabby fall short on the uneven bars) … and now it’s The Sum of All Fears droning toward nuclear disaster. But it’s eleven fifteen and I’m just starting my TST #163 post. No, I don’t have posters block. You see, Saturday is our 44th wedding anniversary. Yes, 44 years. After 44 years, Muri and I agree, we have most everything we want, at least of those things money can buy. We have many of the things it can’t buy, too. So we decided, no extravagant gifts this year and no exotic anniversary vacations. But come on … Thought Number One … we can’t celebrate 44 years without something special! I’ve been hunting online for two weeks for that something with no success … and that’s what I was doing online all night. But tonight? Jackpot.
So, what did I find? Let me toss a few hints. It’s August. And it’s really been hot here in Socal, particularly at night. Got it yet? OK, does this mean anything to you?
OK, one more. The Greek Theater. If you don’t have it now, you’re too young to remember. I found tickets to the Greek Theater’s 40th Anniversary Celebration of the original Neil Diamond Hot August Night featuring the man himself. On our Anniversary. Of course, the man is a bit older but so are we.
So Saturday night, it’s Sweet Caroline … I am I Said … Comin’ to America … and my favorite,
Thought Number Two … The anniversary of one of the iconic events in music … what a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. And a perfect topic for my TST post, too. You can make it a little more perfect by clicking my button … gently … to make me Number One on Top Sites Tuesday #163.
