The next four hours will be spent here, with our southern view and another glorious (for me) cloud-filled June sky outside the window. Today, as always, we came prepared for the long haul. P brought five Lemony Snicket books to read (he pages through, studying the words, letters and occasional illustration). Jo Ann and I brought our copies of 'The Hobbit' - we are joining Grady on his summer reading list; this book, my least favorite of the three we're reading, is his choice as ice-breaker.
Last night, Peter took Grady to see 'Debacle,' a skateboarding movie that was screened at Nike's Montalban Theater in Hollywood. That's the same location that hosted the Livestrong event back in February. They had a good time eating popcorn and - unexpectedly - waiting a long time for the movie's skater star to cab it to the theater from the ER so he could introduce the flick. The dude seriously injured himself while skating yesterday afternoon. Guess Peter and Grady can't avoid being around people who hang out in hospitals!
OK, more later.... I better dive into Hobbitland. For me, this kinda literature is the equivalent of eating raw tomatoes or brussels sprouts. Ugh!
