The (not) lazy month

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.
