june twenty-fourth

Five for June 24th:

Lightning bugs. Jane had a good afternoon nap yesterday, so we let her stay up late to catch some lightning bugs in the backyard. She had a blast, and became attached to one particular insect which she named Christy, who she only reluctantly released back to the wild before bed.

Cheap fun. Two plastic launch ramps I found in the trash, a piece of thin plywood, and a handful of wood screws and I have a little mess-around kicker ramp in the basement. May build a little deck onto the back and throw on some PVC coping for added levels of dorkiness.

Brexit, stage left. The UK is Googling what the E.U. is, hours after it voted to leave, crashing their stock market and forcing the abrupt resignation of their Prime Minister. On the plus side, for the first time in a few years the US doesn’t look like the biggest idiots in the civilized world, however temporarily.

Cool stuff. Getting paid, afternoon skate session in the works, zucchini bread, fresh pair of contacts, beets from the garden, $25 Vato Rat hoodie.

Weekend action. Columbia for family stuff followed by Nachos Bianco and Booches burgers with Lisa, morning session at the CoMo skatepark, mowing the lawn, swimming at the Maplewood pool, taking the kids to the playground.
