Here I am again.

Sunny and warm today. Currently, it's 87˚F, with the heat index at a slightly cooler 86˚F.

Day before yesterday we watched the first three episodes of Season Two of The Boys, and while I very much enjoyed Season One, Season two feels...tired. Like everything was said in Season One, and now it's all gratuitous gore and cynicism.

Later Taters,
