Poem for Saturday

Collapse )

Extreme quickie...have just spent a completely lovely evening after a completely lovely day with dementordelta, though it started too early for me because Paul and I had to take both kids to the dentist/orthodontist (older son to get his veneers repaired, younger son to a consultation to find out how much $$$$$ it is going to cost for the next phase of his treatment to get his teeth aligned so his jaw doesn't get messed up). I have no new news about my uncle other than that we'll be able to see him Saturday as long as we get there during visiting hours.

Once dementordelta arrived, she and I took the kids to lunch at IHOP, then sent them off to the pool for a while and watched a whole bunch of Doctor Who and Torchwood ("Dalek," "School Reunion," "The Girl in the Fireplace," "Day One") plus the Buffy musical while waiting for dinner to cook. Then she and I ran off together to Wolf Trap to see the New York Gilbert & Sullivan players put on H.M.S. Pinafore, which was fantastic -- big tall ship set, good singing, terrific comic actors -- we were in the upper balcony with birds nesting just above us and a glorious view of the treetops and sky on the longest night of the year. Speaking of which, have a lovely Midsummer/Litha/Solstice.

Here's my last retro review till we get back from our long trip at the end of July: "Yesterday's Enterprise", one of Next Gen's best ever. And probably the last of these for a while too:
