Hot today. Currently, it's 84˚F, with the heat index at 93˚F. Our high is forecast at 93˚F, and we have a heat advisory this afternoon, because the heat index could reach 105˚F.

Yesterday, for Spooky's birthday, we saw The Wizard of Oz (1939) at the Alabama Theater. Spooky had never seen it on a big screen, and I love the Alabama more than just about any theater. The Fox in Atlanta might be grander, but I've been going to the Alabama since about 1968 or 1969, when my mother took me there to see One Million Years B.C.. Afterwards, we drove about for a bit, in cool green places, and there was leftover chili for dinner, and then birthday carrot cake.

Last night, we finished Season Two of Goliath. I'm seeing a lot of animosity and whining from people who didn't like that the "good guys" didn't triumph over evil and people who thought that it was too morbid and horrific, but I say it was great.

Today, I mean to make a serious fucking dent in these boxes, unpacking the last of my books.

TTFN,
CRK

That sounds like an excellent birthday present, as do the cool green places.

I adore that the Alabama is still going. I've been to the Fabulous Fox a few times, which is stunning, but the Alabama was that first big OOOHHH and big screen movies holds a place in my heart too.

Happy Birthday to Spooky! And I am happy you are in the green places. The view from the bedroom I think, I'm trying to picture what are the apartment is but wherever, you have a great view w. the trees and green.

I like the history of the Theater. both personally and as a building.

Seeing The Wizard of Oz on the big screen sounds amazing!
