August is supposed to be the lazy month, but I’m often surprised at how my leisure calendar gets filled up at this time of year. I’ve had a pile of gigs, including my 12th visit to Paw Paw, and I squeezed in a trip to Vegas (almost everyone came back safely). My 15th wedding anniversary is Thursday, I’m seeing Cirque du Soleil on Friday and I have yet still another gig Saturday.
I’ve also got tickets to three Nats games in the next 12 days, including two games against the Cardinals. For years, I’ve watched out-of-it Nats squads kick around the pennant-contending Cards when St. Louis has come to visit. This year, it’s the Nats in the driver’s seat. Hopefully the Cards won’t return the favor.
