The weather finally turned here and it’s lovely, although still a bit chillier than I’m accustomed to in the latter days of summer. It was a hefty high of 75 degrees yesterday. But at least the rain had stopped and I got to see the beauty of Vermont that everyone’s been talking about.
Last night we spent the evening at the ECHO Aquarium. It was beautiful there. I think it’s time for me to share a few more random musings about my latest adventures:
- After hearing the name of the first song I wrote when I was a kid (Now that our love is dead the only thing left to kill is you), it completely threw everyone off the trail when it came to guessing the faculty fave 5 that we play here at the beginning of each session. Mine were songs from Queen, The Doobie Brothers, The Eagles, James Taylor and Bon Jovi. Everyone was expecting country/bluegrass. I guess you can never quite account for taste!
- Do you think there’s something cannibalistic about eating fish or seafood as appetizers when you’re visiting an aquarium and looking at fish?
- No kidding, there was a sign about seeing the live animal display directly behind the meat carving station last night. Creepy.
- I’m a new fan of Adirondack Chairs. In fact, any chair. My foot really, really hurts!
