No Future Politicians Here

Great weekend. Family friends Friday night and locals Saturday night, not the least of whom is Hemley, back from his Indian sabbatical. He surprised the drunken lot of us at Ben and Laura's, after Ben, Laura, Maggie, Gabe and I'd witnessed the locomotive wreck that was "Shakespeare in the Park;" had downed a bottle of rum, two bottles of wine and that 1980 magnum of Dom that I rescued from the 'rents 3rd fridge between us—all by 9 p.m. (Yes, Macbeth was that painful.)

Defense Exhibits A, B, C and D:

A still bright eyed and bushy tailed Ben

Things went rapidly downhill from there.

The girls were faring a little better.

Hemley's reunion with his beloved Ishkabob. And me.
