It was BeezleBub's last day working full time at the farm this summer. As school starts Wednesday and his normal day off is Monday, it didn't seem prudent for him to work Tuesday as he'll be busy enough getting ready for school. He'll still put in a full day on Saturdays until the after the farm stand closes the weekend before Halloween.
As he told me the other day, he's looking forward to starting school so he “can get some rest.”
That's my boy!
Now that the 2008 Summer Olympics Games have come to a close, we can start paying attention to a real circus – the upcoming Democratic Convention in Denver.
I'll be blogging about the convention for Weekend Pundit and Dodgeblogium, the latter to provide some Yankee insight into the convention for the British readers of Andrew Ian Dodge's blog.
This is something I did for the New Hampshire Primary and Andrew asked me to comment upon the conventions as well.
As I wrote to Andrew when responding to his request, “I have a feeling the Democratic Convention will be quite...umm...dramatic."
And speaking of the convention, it hasn't even started, yet there are already anti-war protests. One of those protesting is Cindy Sheehan. She is so yesterday and so pathetic.
There are plenty of Gold Star Mothers I know that would give her a run for her money, particularly since she wouldn't be able to claim some kind of moral superiority over them because they lost children to the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, too.
A post-veep announcement poll shows there's been no bounce for Obama, with the presidential race remaining a dead heat.
That's got to be encouraging for McCain.
And that's the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where school starts soon enough, politics follows close behind, and we're still hoping for another two months of boating.
