For about a week I have been contemplating signing up for an overnight backpacking/camping trip at FDR State Park at the end of October put on by REI. The workshop was priced at $299 which is why I was hemming and hawing about whether to join the two others who had already registered. When I went to see if anyone else had registered I couldn’t find the event, which apparently means that REI has cancelled it.
Last night’s outing was fun. Harold (Bwana) drove down to the ITP Estate and I drove us up to Little 5 Points. We had beers and dinner at Wrecking Bar before walking around to Variety Playhouse for the Rick Beato show. On Beato’s YouTube channel he often breaks down a song, explaining why it’s great. Due to the ridiculous copyright laws he has to avoid songs from many bands, including The Beatles (who you’d think have enough money at this point), lest the video get demonetized or his channel gets a strike placed on it. Live however, he can do as he pleases, so he broke down The Beatles’ song “I am the Walrus”.
It was twenty years ago today when the path of the Atlanta Thrashers started its decline. Twenty years ago today Thrashers superstar Danny Heatley lost control of his car while speeding up Lenox Road, injuring himself and subsequently killing his teammate Dan Snyder.
I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was WHITE.
