Graduation at Ft Lee Virginia, food, books, motorcycle ride and some failed gardening updates......hmmmmm...where to start........
My son graduated with honors at Ft lee Virginia on Friday. I am so proud of him. :-) Wish we could have been there but his fiancee drove up and they were able to spend some time together.
Borders bookstores are closing, did you know that? Discounts are good now and we scored a chicken cookbook, a cocktail book, a Dave Matthews concert DVD, pretty hot pink journal....lots of stuff.
Almost too hot to ride: A few Sundays ago we rode about 200 miles...just to get out. Leaving early the heat isn’t too awful. Heading north into Georgia some guy blew by us on a sport touring bike and just looked at us. Doug was doing 60ish and this guy flew by so…..guess he was up to 80+ which was by far exceeding the speed limit.
Next thing we see a police car with lights flashing, flying by us in pursuit. HA-ha
Cockails: We made a few decent cocktails recently.

Gardening: We started the garden a bit too late in the season I think. It's very hot here, many days having a heat index 104+....which does not make the tomatoes happy. Did you know wasps love tomatoes? They do! They drill into our fat tomatoes and make them inedible. Next year we'll start the garden sooner.
My Italy in Reading Challenge is going well...just finished my fourth book for that blog and challenge. Review for The Daughter of Siena may be found HERE.
New Grill: Last but most certainly not least - my bartender/grill master acquired his new grill! He's been lusting after this one for quite awhile.
At this moment he is out fiddling with wood chips and a chicken.
Sorry I haven't been visiting much......sometimes I just can not open the comment field on your sites. Shite of an Internet connection I imagine.
Hope you all are well and braving the heat of summer with good food, good company and a cold drink.
