Harlan Ellison's A Boy and His Dog. Not a great movie, but worth watching.
I'm usually not scared, I take each day as it comes. I recently filed as a widower, because I am approaching Full Retirement Age (FRA.) I'm scared because I am reaching the point where I realize: 1) I am getting older; 2) I won't be working at my usual occupation for much longer. I've had a good run, my finances will be ok. I plan to continue doing something but it is a new vista and quite simply a little frightening. I will see what the future brings.
Columbo, Prescription: Murder. The first take, he had an edge in this one that didn't blend into subsequent episodes.

Autumnal Equinox : The equinox at which the sun approaches the Southern Hemisphere, marking the start of astronomical autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. The time of this occurrence is approximately September 22. On that day, daylight is everywhere 12 hours. Compare with vernal equinox, offset by six months.
I prefer The Lemon Ice King of Corona but Uncle Louie G's ices are pretty good.

16 years ago, still hurts.

The New York Public Library is quite impressive.

Sunflowers in the sun.
Washington Square Park.
Figured I have to take this picture now before they take it it down or put up a plaque outlining his misdeeds.
Different colored carrots.

If it is Labor Day weekend, it is outlet time. Must be getting old, bought underwear and kitchen utensils and one Converse T-shirt.
Finally saw Cats. Liked it. Had second row seats near the drain pipe, Cats running and jumping around me.
RIP Walter Becker. Rickie Lee Jones wrote a nice tribute in Rolling Stone.
Rock and Roll High School, Forest Hills.

Last Wednesday's visits included St. Paul: St. Paul and Pacific RR.
Tornado over St. Paul.
Minneapolis Institute of Art : Christ Driving the Money Changers from the Temple.
F. Scott Fitzgerald's birthplace.
Cass Gilbert designed these houses, one for his mother.
Arby's Brisket. I used to eat them in college. It truly is mystery meat, it ain't Brisket.

Tuesday visits: MTM, a Minneapolis icon.
Nice touch at a construction site, the new Nicollet Mall.
Matt's: home of the Juicy Lucy.
Place was packed, ate at the bar. The Juicy Lucy was great.
Thanks to Google maps with bus and train routes, a quick visit after Matt's to the Mall of America. Huge, with an amusement park in the middle. I needed touch screens to find my way out.
