Yeah, so we had this backyard party planned for a while for August 27. I’d purchased a pool, a slip-n-slide, and water balloons. And, according to the law of hospitality, I’d updated my porch to a swanky setting. And then the APB to tell everyone, “So sorry, you can’t come. The Bay Bridge will be closed at noon. ” I am really not happy about having my party cancelled. I was even cleaning today. Housekeeping for the inevitable hurricane. Go figure. I did manage to get out to the store for groceries, The library for books and videos. And the liquor store for a box-’o -wine. We’re ready-ish for the stinky hurricane but I still feel jipped for having my friends’ visit stolen.
