Nothing much ever happens around here, it’s as if I’m in Sherwood Forest while Robin and the guys are out doing B&Es. Yes, it’s been that kind of summer: one meal and then another meal, it’s dark, it’s light, it’s raining, it’s about to rain, it stopped raining, the sun’s out.
The bonus of boredom is that one has the opportunity to notice small changes that may hint at big things to come.
Why, just this morning–this very morning–I saw a bus driver, big fellow and no surprise there, wearing a captain’s cap with a metal badge in the center! Does this mean that formality will follow? Will other bus drivers follow his lead? Can we expect decorum to follow?
And then, just prior, on the first walk with the dogs of the day, I saw acorns on the sidewalk. We all know what that means! It’s not yet August, but acorns? Pretty soon it’ll be Christmas! Only 146 days to get that shopping done.
