did anyone watch the preakness? my my my, what a race. that was most of the excitement round these parts this weekend. we stopped in to our favorite bbq place that reopened for the summer (yes, the bbq in upstate new york is actually quite good) and started to enjoy all the things to come - strawberries, corn on the cob, walking outside in the twilight to dinner. i'm so ready for summer, and even though it's another rainy monday, i'm glad we're getting nice weather on the weekends. i consider it a fair trade. alright - galoshes on, umbrella out - back to work i go.
