And Jet, I thought that the major was a little lady suffragette

It's been a really fine day, but not for any particular reason, although I'm tempted to attribute a lot of my good vibe to the weather. The last two days have been in the 70's F and sunny. I wanted to go for a walk today. The guys and I were not meeting at Pete's Coffee and it's been awhile since I've been doing my noon walking. Unfortunately, I had to drive over to Oakland to do some banking, so that shut down that idea. Ah well, it was good to drive with the windows down. Some of my Canadian friends have been complaining that they haven't felt the bitter bite of Jack Frost hard enough this year. Pffft! You won't hear me saying that. I love California. This is my kind of weather.

It was still warm and clear when I drove home this evening. I still had the car windows open. There was something in the air tonight. I have no idea what it was, but it smelled fantastic. There are several trees blooming here. I kept sniffing to catch traces of whatever it was all the way home. It's a beautiful night. There's a half-moon in the sky. If it keeps staying warm like this, I may have to roll out the air mattress and my telescope and do some stargazing. I haven't done that in awhile, either. I only got a few nights of that in last summer.

On the drive home tonight, I heard David Bowie: "Suffragette City" on KFOG and in a fit of free-association, I wanted to hear Paul McCartney and Wings: "Jet". I couldn't wait to get home to play it. Sitting here thinking about Jet, I observed that, if you think about it, Cheap Trick: "Surrender" sounds like it could be about the same group of people.

Shannon's coming to visit this weekend. Jackie's not going to make it this weekend -- it's her boyfriend's birthday. She's been "going with" this guy for the past couple of months so far. I'm not sure what I make of this development. I guess the kid seems okay -- perhaps a bit geeky -- but then I never had a leg to stand on in that department. At least he's her age, and seems to have his head on reasonably straight. I spoke with Shannon on the phone and she explained why Jackie was going to be a no-show. Shannon: "It will be good to get away from Jackie while she's around her boyfriend. It's disgusting: she follows him around like a lovesick puppy. It is sweet, but it's getting so bad I'm going to start getting cavities if they keep it up." Hmmph. You'll get your turn, kid.
