Out of the Blue

We had a very nice time yesterday at what was dubbed a Mayfest. It was a pleasant setting and we got to check out one of the walkways over the Hudson River, which was awesome. But it sure was hot, and it's hot today too. I looked at the weather and MrsBlue's mom's hometown Atlanta came up first, and it's warmer here than there! That tracks with our recent experiences for Memorial Day and its ilk where the "unofficial" start of a new season is like flipping a switch. This was the perfect atmosphere for my viewing last night of the awesome Dune 2. Though in another unofficial sign of summer, I just emptied the dehumidifier in my office for the first time since last year, but I was not tempted to drink from the reservoir. I guess I'd make a terrible Fremen.

Based on their politics, pretty sure Indiana doesn't want me there. And I'm glad to not be there.

I live under two hours from Indianapolis and never had an urge to go see the race.

Indiana wants you, but you can't go back there?

Crash on the first lap of the biggest 3 day drunk in the world.
The Indianapolis 500
Halfway home in 1 hour, 33 minutes, 30 seconds.
1 hour 56 minutes allowed until we have to throw the checkered.
Great odds to get all 200 laps in.
