I made it home safe and sound. The flight back treated me to a view of the full moon rising over the clouds somewhere between Northern Kentucky and South Florida.

Today is another use-it-or-lose it day off. I’ve been looking forward to it not just because I get time off but because I’m going to do something special that has something to do with this picture below.
This house is located at 409 East Front Street in Perrysburg, Ohio. No, I’m not going to actually go back to Perrysburg, but in a way I will be.
I’ll tell you all about it when I get back.

I will find out later today if I get the whole day off or just the morning. Right now, though, I’m going to find out if I can go back to sleep until the sun comes up.

As you leave Key Largo, the sign on US 1 says “Leaving Key Largo — Back to Reality.” Very true.
I’m catching up on the news from the Navy Yard: yet another mass shooting on a military base. Details are still coming in, but there are a number of fatalities and injuries.
Also, the United Nations is confirming that chemical weapons were used in Syria against civilians, but they’re stopping short of assigning blame.
It rained the entire time that I was in Key Largo, including some really heavy thunderstorms this morning, putting the kibosh on any plans to sit on the beach and gaze out at the ocean. But I had a good time with my friends who made me a birthday luncheon and plied me with chocolate. So despite the horrific news from the outside world, the day was not a total loss, and I’m grateful for the expressions of love and friendship from my friends and extended family.

Vacation is over; I’m heading back to Miami today and back to work tomorrow.
As I alluded to last night, it’s been a bittersweet time: great to be with my parents and to go to Stratford, but also a goodbye to a place that will always be a part of my life.
Today is also the first day of school in Miami-Dade County. Best wishes to the teachers, staff, and kids, and yes, I’m also wondering where did the summer go?
See you when I get back unless I see something worth posting.

President Obama and his family are off to Martha’s Vineyard for eight days. Sounds like a great idea; everyone needs a little time off.
I too am out of here for a while: off on my annual pilgrimage to my hometown of Perrysburg, Ohio, and then on to Stratford, Ontario, for theatre and maybe even a picnic on the banks of the Avon River.
That means that blogging will be light and variable for the next week or so, at least in terms of the stuff that usually passes for content here. Check back every now and then to see if I have put up anything.
