The cool front is still giving us lovely cool nights, but it looks like today will be pretty hot.
I am having some seasonal allergy problems since we returned from the Keys. I thought I had missed allergy season, but I guess not. No pollen in the Keys…maybe we need to head back! I can’t take any kind of allergy medicine right not, so I’m having to just deal with it.
I spent yesterday taking Mom to her doctor appointment. Her appointment was at 3 pm, and she wasn’t ready to leave the house until 3:05.
What can you do? By the time I got home, it was 7pm. I had spent most of the day fighting Tampa traffic.
Al and I both loved it. It was an extremely well written book that was a true story of a young man who was destined for the Olympics, only to end up as a Japanese prisoner of war. He was treated horribly and it was amazing that he was able to survive.
I have never understood how America could have dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan. I lived in Japan three years starting in 1957. I liked the Japanese people. After reading this book, I understood a little better about why it was done. I’m still not sure I really agree with it…but I understand better now. Anyway, it was an excellent book and one that I would highly recommend.
Rick also recommended the book, American Prometheus, which is the story of the man who invented the nuclear bomb. I thought it would be a natural follow up to the first book, so I am going to start reading it next. Thanks Rick!
