not much else to say… that really got away from me. Roughly six
to eight weeks of stuff that needed my attention or took me away
from the office.
you ever seen log rolling competitions? Or maybe a person trying
to get on or off of a moving treadmill? Something where a person
tries to change directions or speeds, or move between a surface
at a complete stop and one in motion. Those would be perfectly
generalized concepts to use in beginning to describe how April
moved into May and then into June for me (and, honestly, for both
Terry and I).
hopped on to a run of chores around the yard, visits to the kids,
assorted work issues and more, thinking we knew what we had ahead
of us and how the schedule would move.
truth? We had an absolute blast. Quality time with quality people.
Despite all of the rain and the lacking sun, the garden seems
ok. But the reality was that things were moving at speeds we weren’t
even close to prepared for, and suddenly… poof… here comes July.
final week of June… here’s what to expect around The ‘ville…
got the June issue of A
Parkside View ready. It will be out soon.
The July edition is actually being prepped and will follow next

announced on our social media pages. I’m wrapping up today’s entry
with a summary of the June challenge just in case you missed it
and would still like to play along.
am now approaching July with a one-essay-per-day-average mentality,
and the idea is to get things rolling again in a big way.
Phew. Lawn needs to be mowed. Sun has actually been out for almost
four straight days. Time to get back to work. A few assorted notes…
have zero clue what
to say about this. A return of The Banana
Splits? I mean… come on… AWESOME. That’s awesome. A scary slasher
film? Part of me is shaking my head, and the other part is thinking
it could be an incredible twist.
is beginning to shake out and make
announcements concerning theatrical releases
in a post-Fox-merger world. There’s still plenty to come… Marvel,
for instance, is expected to outline some specifics at upcoming
Comic Con or Disney gatherings… but a few major moves are in place.
stay with Disney for a moment and move toward the character of
Maleficent. First live action work on the tale did a nice job
shifting the perspective and narrative of the story. Now we have
Mistress of Evil
on the horizon. Visually it looks good, but
I have my fingers crossed they get the story right.
the Toy Story movies and anxious about Toy Story
wait is getting shorter. (And, actually, this
line was written before the film was released. Which it was, a
few days ago.)
last big thing for today…
Friends for Local Business
June, the challenge is based on Sharing the Love. And, it’s a
bit of a twist on the usual Local Friends idea.
this particular case, consider the places you would recommend
to someone if you found out they were going to be heading to a
certain city or town or location of any kind where you had some
there a local bar you need to visit for live music when in town?
How about a restaurant you immediately add to any plans when you
head back to where you grew up? Is there an amazing tourist attraction
or shop in a place you visited on vacation?
the answer is yes, then share the love.
wrapping up. (And all while The ‘ville is proving almost ready
for May. Stay tuned.)
