Why are we smiling like fools? Because it's 78 degrees outside and we're about to ride our bikes to the hotel on campus for dinner. On July 2nd, people! We've had an extraordinary run of moderate weather which has turned everyone in town into what Jackson Browne once called 'happy idiots.' I LOVE happy idiots. So joyful! So effusive! So.... silly! While riding our bikes the 7 or 8 blocks to dinner, the hubs kept yelling, "Omigod, it's just like vacation!" Well, I don't know about that. But, it's sure as heck not like Kansas in July.
