"No time, no time, miss a day, you miss a month..."
That was a quote from my high school junior-year pre-calc teacher (who at last report was still trawling around on Facebook). That's significant because I readily remember graduating from that institution on June 26, 1977; I remember it for unknown reasons that didn't bind my brain with my anniversary dates of graduating either undergrad or law school, the dates of which are lost to history. 

It also comes to mind because I did not post anything here a day ago, first time since April 7th that I officially had nothing to say. It was a long day out of the house for both of us, in different places, and by the time it ended I really didn't want to fall back on work BS or TV spoilers.

Today, though, was uneventful, and thus worthy of a post.

No court or appointments today, for the first time in a week; I thus got to clear major stuff off my desk, set up appointments and other things for the future, and generally felt better about Things in the professional world by day's end.

Between radio in my travels and TV at the end, I watched the US soccer team lose, and yet advance to the Sweet Sixteen knockout round of the World Cup. Reading the diatribe by A Loner Cunt about the sport made me love it so much more.

In a slightly different world, I'd have spent today driving back from watching the Mets lose last night, to a pitcher the Oakland A's acquired for all of one dollar.  The court hearing connected to that trip got moved to Tuesday August 5th, making feasible a number of home games against the Phillies and Giants from July 30th to August 4th. In the middle of that is the annual Shore Leave sci-fi con near Baltimore, so there are possibilities involving that, as well.

Tomorrow, I hit the road again, but only, mainly, to bring Cameron back here to see his brother graduate from high school on Saturday. Wonder if he'll remember the exact date 37 years from now.

That's impressive: I don't remember the exact date of my high school graduation, which was only 19 years ago. But knowing the date of yours makes me realize that you are the same age as my youngest uncle. Mom has pictures of him in his graduation robe, holding me as an infant less than 2 months old. He looks kind of gangly. I look very small.
