A Typically Busy Weekend

Today, to celebrate Free Comic Book Day, Thing 1, Thing 2, and I visited...
  • two different comics shops
  • two different libraries
  • two places where letters & packages are dispatched
  • the local grocery store
  • a bank
  • a Friendly's restaurant for lunch (after burning two frozen pizzas in our oven and realizing it was broken)
  • and the super-secret shed where the High Paraphernalia of Cub Scouting are kept
...on our way to my mother's house, where we met with The Wife and her younger sister for a fine and only very slightly '70s-seeming dinner of pizza fondue.

On top of that, it's the twenty-third anniversary of the first date of The Wife and myself. (Her prom -- long story.) And tomorrow is the Soapbox Derby, when young boys in blue uniforms -- including Thing 2 -- will strap themselves into jury-rigged contraptions of plywood nailed atop little-red-wagonwheels and hurtle down the road next to the First Aid Squad in pursuit of glory.

So I don't have a lot of time for blogging this weekend. I hope to get some serious pounding-the-computer-keys time tomorrow, but that may be a vain hope. And today is already gone. So I'm going to drag something out of the deep freeze and schedule it to post tomorrow morning, just in case.

And this will have to stand for today's post.
