A Heavenly Present

August 29/08 6:25 p.m.

The weather frog has predicted a weekend out of this world temperature wise. - Great, so we will have the one and only bar-b-que nite this year tomorrow nite. There is but one place to buy a real good steak the right cut, that's the big local outdoor market downtown. Decided to have lunch for a change in the city, but voted against it, too crowded, tooo noisy, too many cars and too many construction sites. Maybe us country bumpkins are not used to the huzz buzz anymore. Instead we choose to visit the riverboat restaurant Canoo (faithful readers are familiar with the place, for all the others, again the link) and it is always a pleasure to sit there,this time on the outside deck,with a view upon the city skyline and the river traffic. And the food is good too. The place in the meantime has a bit of a beat up character, but never mind, it adds to the charm.
Back home took a bike tour with insulted Herr Hund (because he had to stay home during our downtown trip) now his little world is ok.

Watched Barak Obama's speech this morning at the internet, will he be able to live up to his promises, should he win the presidency? Time will tell.
