Hi. It’s Joe.
This weekend will be fun. It’s the weekend after Memorial Day, so I will be pulling a fast one on the holiday-mongers who were clogging the roads and competing with each other for tourist attractions last weekend. I think that’s the way to do it. Everyone is all holidayed out from Memorial Day and so it should be open season on just about everything this weekend.
My parents are coming to town tonight or tomorrow. I am pretty sure they will roll in tomorrow, taking it easy on the roads between Ohio and here. On Saturday, the weather is supposed to be superb (this represents the only risk to having a tourist-free weekend…if the weather is nice enough, people will still get out and enjoy it). I think we will go to the Madison Farmers Market, followed by a leisurely bike ride around Lake Monona in Madison WI with a bicycling group.
On Sunday, I am hosting a house concert and foosball party from 2 to 6 PM. I had high hopes that a lot of people would come, but as it turns out a few of the people who RSVP’d in the affirmative have now suddenly found themselves double booked. Isn’t that interesting?
But the rocking and the foosball are for sure happening. Mike from GUPPY EFFECT is also bringing a fresh batch of home brew beer for the sampling. GUPPY EFFECT is going to play some, and then if there are other musicians present, we will do some open acoustic jams between bouts of foosball.
I might put Buddy in the kennel, since he is not good with people and plus my parents’ 2 dogs will be there. That is a lot of doggage and canininity. Neither of those two things are actual words. I made them up.
I watched a lecture on YouTube last night of physicist Lawrence Krause talking about the nature of the universe and how it will end. It gave me bad dreams. It turns out we live in the worst possible universe for a good future outcome, in like 2 trillion years. Check out his book that I thumbnailed in the upper right of this post.
