It's Warming Up

We've had another enjoyable week.

As reported in another entry ("Winstar and Some Oklahoma Highways and Byways"), we took a short trip this week. It's always good to get away for a few days, but it's even better getting back home.

The weather has been unusually warm for this time of year. On Thursday, the high in San Angelo was in the low 90s. What's going on? Back in 2011, I recall extremely hot weather early in the year, even in the 100 degree area in March. That was the year our extreme drought started. Hope we are not in for a repeat of that.

On Saturday night, we went to the Angelo Civic Theater to attend a performance of Love Letters, a play by A. R. Gurney. Throughout the play, childhood friends Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner sit side by side at tables onstage and read the notes, letters, and cards which they send each other throughout their lives. The correspondence chronicles the development of the characters as they progress from childhood, through boarding schools and college, and then as adults. The relationship they share is the core of the play, and each one influences the other in ways they learn to appreciate over time. It is an interesting and touching play. As someone who has been married for 40 years, it caused me to reflect on the many ways Donna and I have brought about changes in each other over the years.

Looks like a good week ahead. Temps should be in the 70s and 80s for the next week or so. We might even get out for a good hike at the park one day.
