Good idea for a party, though.

Agreed!

I can't believe it, but I've actually outrun my New Yorkers. I've finished the June 10-17 issue, but as of yesterday's mail the June 24 issue has not yet arrived. Instead of the magazine, I'm reading a book at lunch.

What book?

I'm invited to a post-solstice party Saturday night. But I don't think I'll know anyone there except the hosts, so I'll probably skip it.

I used to love fall but now I don't.

Good idea for a party, though.

I'll be at work, and thinking about the days getting shorter, as we slide down to autumn.

I keep hearing on TV news that the solstice is shortly before noon (or something like that), so I'll be at work, too, for the momentous moment. I will be sad to think of the days growing inexorably shorter, and think how fast time seems to be passing. I will, however, remember how much I love fall, and hope I will be able to travel this fall. I will raise a glass of scotch to the occasion. (I do that every Friday night, but never mind!)

The summer solstice is this coming Friday, June 21. I've heard two reports that the solstice occurs shortly before noon.

Another TV news anchor person remarked that after the summer solstice, the days will slowly begin to grow shorter.

Yum!

I love how even when your family goes out for a meal, it's Italian.
