It's feeling like...well, July, hot and muggy with periods of rain. My father came looking to have lunch with Daniel in the late morning and we all ended up going to Bagel City, where I had intended to take the kids anyway since we needed bagels and spreads.

We had quesadillas for dinner, then watched PBS documentaries on the Statue of Liberty (an early Ken Burns film, and excellent) and Mount Rushmore and Borglum, who was quite an egotist.
