What in the heck ??!?!?!?! Where did summer go? It's supposed to go down to 48 degrees tonight !! It's still August, for Pete's sake! Randy and I were sitting outside talking this afternoon and we realized that we hadn't seen any robins for a while; the cedar waxwings came thru early to clear out the cherry tree (even before they were fully ripe!); the burning bush is thinking about changing color; we've noticed trees starting to change; and one of my mums is already blooming. **sigh** I guess it's inevitable. Fall is lurking.
I had a good birthday yesterday! Randy and I went to Downtown Detroit and did some wandering around. Mainly we went to Joe Louis Arena for HockeyFest. It was kind of neat. First we walked around the outer area where the concession stands are (photo ops!). There was all sorts of stuff to do down in the arena. They had mini-arenas set up so kids could play goalie (in full goalie pads, too) and have whiffle balls shot at them; see how hard you could slap the puck, all sorts of fun stuff. They had a band playing a bunch of cover songs, too. We went back to where they had past players giving autographs, but we'd never heard of the guy there. We even got to tour the locker room! That was pretty neat. The tunnel is awesome!
