Scattershooting

This has to be the strangest summer I ever remember. More rain in the forecast for the next few days. I think it all stems back to me putting in an automatic sprinkler system at the end of last summer:). But here it is the end of July -- and we are looking at highs in the upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s. Last night at about 6:30 or 7, I was outside -- and it actually had a feel of Fall in the air. It has been really nice.

I wrote about smoking the other day. Maybe you heard that Disney is not going to have any scenes with smoking in them from now on. I don't know what they will do with their old animated movies, because the report I was watching showed clips of smoking from "101 Dalmatians," "Pinnochio," and "Peter Pan" -- as well as others.

I don't know: Are kids really tempted to smoke because they see Cruella DeVille (sp?) puffing on a cigarette in a holder that is 18 inches long? Could this be an overreaction on the part of Disney?

Here's hoping that the stock market got over its little temper fit yesterday.

The weather has been unbelievable this year! Kinda fun!
I am delighted to see someone getting involved to protect our children against the ails of tobacco.
I am so looking forward to traveling with you next week!
