Ain’t that the truth!

Today, it rained and rained and rained.  We stayed inside and worked in the office and are about caught up!  Mary made the last of the arrangements for the Ireland Adventure while we worked on the Panama Canal Adventure the previous week.

Mid-afternoon, I checked the rain gauge, and we got a tad over five inches of rain in the past two days.   I hooked up the portable sump pump and took another two inches out of the pool, just in case.

We binge-watched Royal Pain, and then around 3:00 pm, we met with a roofer to discuss the leak we had in the kitchen.

At 5:00 pm, we got gussied up and headed off to the Segerstrom Performing Arts Center, where we had tickets for The Lion King!  We stopped at The Westin South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, for a glass of wine and met up with Kiana!  I have known Kiana since 1994, and she served us wine before the play for over thirty years.  I was pleased to introduce her to Dr. Mary.  It also turns out she is Pam’s dear neighbor, the daughter of Jeff, our neighbor!  It is a small world.

For more than 20 years, the North American touring productions of The Lion King have been seen by over 21 million theatergoers.  Having already played more than 9,000 performances in over 90 cities across North America, The Lion King now returns to Costa Mesa, CA, at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

It was an excellent performance!

As we exited, I thought I heard rain, but fortunately, it was the fountain.  The sky was clear, and it was an easy drive home.

We had a delightful evening at the theater.

We left Scout inside this evening while we were gone, and when we got home, we were curled up in his bed in our bedroom.  I invited him outside to do his thing before we hit the sack for the evening.

The sky was clear, and the stars were bright!

The rain has gone away.

Mary read a book for about thirty minutes, and I worked on the computer until I got sleepy, which was also about thirty minutes; it was a delightful day!

About Paul
