I know that the last thing you want to think about in July is football, especially in a summer of an NFL lock-out and the possibility of no football come September, but here I am working in an office where we need some occasional outside stimulation, and this morning provided a bit of that. Since December of last year, we have been looking out our office windows at a deflated Metrodome (See my December 12, 2010 post - "the Vikings always find a way to stay in the news" [although the video of the collapse isn't there anymore]). This morning -- finally -- the repaired roof went back up, and we are looking at a white dome again instead of a flattened pancake...
... and don't complain about summer football talk! At least this July you aren't hearing any stories about whether Brett Favre will be back with the Vikings this season!
On the other side of downtown, our West Side Story night was terrific. There were six of us, including me and Jerry, Mary, Joan, Ruthie and James. A good time was had by all, and we're all convinced it will be, for us, one of our highlights of this summer. The mystery of the evening was why so many people in attendance felt the need to go to the bathroom during the show. All that up and down is very distracting! Have they never been to the theater before?
