The Best Laid Plans

Today is the last day that our neighborhood pool was open and we had made plans to go there with Sam and Bonnie this afternoon. But it rained. It rained a lot. So we never made it to the pool.

But earlier in the day, we had gone out to see Christopher Robin with Sam and Bonnie. It turns out to be a delightful film and caused Gretchen to coin the phrase "Agent Carter and the Super Sleuths", which makes my brain hurt.

I also discovered that I cannot sit in the third row of the theater without becoming motion sick. *sigh* Motion sick watching Christopher Robin. Right.

We headed back to the house to chat. It turns out that Jerry has just arrived back in town, so we invited him over to join us. There was a lot of pleasant conversation, an emergency run for dinner supplies, dinner, and eventually the party broke up and we started moving -- slowly -- towards bed.

Back to school and work tomorrow.

But it was a good end to summer.

And a very wet one.
