Yay, we did it! We made it through another week!

We finished the election and welcomed our new DOTUS.

It’s time to let off some steam and celebrate. What better way to do that than to revisit some of the fun celebrations by a guy who really knows how to act after he scores a goal, Sean Kuraly.

See some if not all of you on the Zoom tomorrow night!

Rainy out here.
All the oak trees decided to shed their leaves on Tuesday morning (ok, like 2/3 of them) – It was stunning. I’d just used the leafblower to clear off the yard & driveway on Sunday or Monday, and by mid day on Tuesday, the UPS guy was having a hard time navigating the driveway because it was completely invisible under the bed of leaves. Had to make another pass with the leafblower.
There are a LOT of 80′ oaks around the house.

The biggest share of the leaves get moved to a pile under the tree-line. Yesterday, Boomer looked completely lost because he likes to do his business there, and there was a freshly piled reef of leaves dozens of feet wide and 8 feet thick that was as deep as he is tall. Poor guy. He loves to play in the leaves but it was just too deep.

A couple of weeks ago my friend and I were laughing. There had been a lot of wind and my side of Main Street was completely clear and her side of Main Street was covered in leaves.

It’s so odd. Do the leaves have a meeting? Whaddiya say, gang? Ten o’clock tomorrow morning. Who’s in?

Morning folks.

I miss Kura-leaps.

Wow, is it me or has this week flown by? Maybe it’s just in comparison with last week when waiting for vote counts really dragged. I’m looking at you, Monrovia! Also I had two midweek days off this week so they always go quickly…

Sunday morning I need to make an early start on work so I won’t be Zooming this week.

If anyone hasn’t seen “The Queen’s Gambit” on Netflix I can highly recommend it. Someone told me about it because they thought I liked chess (I don’t), but fortunately you don’t need to like chess! Sonia and I both really enjoyed it.

Did anyone see that new Muppets series on Disney +? Wondering if it’s worth a watch.

We just got through The Queen’s Gambit. Definitely enjoyed it. Not super deep, but well executed, and engaging.

Haven’t seen latest Muppets series. (Have seen The Mandalorean – most cool, though it has a very different feel than the old Star Wars – clearly they are going for the style of a classic western or Kurosawa period piece which Star Wars pretended to be but never came close to pulling off.)

I watched the first episode of the new series of Mandalorean last night. Little bit formulaic – Mando goes somewhere, meets some people who need help, Mando helps them. Entertaining enough, but I hope they get back to moving the overall story forward. I was always more into Star Trek though.

Agreed that it does come off as formulaic, but at least there is continuity between episodes and a loose story arc. So while it seems like a series of bottle episodes, things that happen in older episodes do come up in later episodes. This helps it come together bit better as the season goes on. The current season is a bit smoother.

Need to catch up on the Mandalorian. Only have watched the first episode. There’s a couple of guest starts in episodes 2 & 3 that I’m looking forward to.
