Ducks on the Charles

Wasn’t I just wondering where July went? I have a feeling I’m about to be wondering where August went. We’ve been traveling a lot, and we moved last month, etc. etc. etc.

For those in the Boston area, did you know they do free movie screenings at the Hatch Shell every Friday night in the summer? We went last Friday and saw Tangled, the Disney version of Rapunzel. (Strange: Disney did all those other classic fairy tales – The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty – but never Rapunzel. Or Rumpelstiltskin. Or Hansel and Gretel. Okay, I guess they didn’t do them all.) Tangled, anyway, was better than I expected (despite taking extreme liberties, bordering on blatant falsification, in their representation of equine behavior), pretty funny, and worth seeing.

Also, the weather was pleasant, and we had a picnic and friends to share blankets with. And we got to see ducks on the Charles River!

What I’ve been reading: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle
What I’ve been listening to: Question the Answers, Mighty Mighty Bosstones; Stripped, The Rolling Stones
