When I got up this morning I decided to buy a small amount of stock. At this point it looks like I might have been one of the few. In truth, it doesn't seem like such a bad idea. There are a lot of bargains out there, and if you believe, as I do, that the country will come back strong, it seems like a good thing to do. I think the symbolism is important anyway. I bought the Qs - QQQ - a Nasdaq 100 index stock - since I can't buy a tech stock directly. I'm sorry that I missed the trip to VA, but it was very nice to have a quiet weekend at home. I had to work on the book. The preliminary drafts came back but they needed quite a bit of editing, fixing, and updating. I got through July over the weekend and I have to finish the five remaining chapters/months by the end of the week.
I did take Sunday evening off for a family night. We lit a fire in the fireplace and played Parcheesi. Henry won. It was very nice and normal and cozy. But Jennifer and I sure felt lucky. We said a little prayer with the kids at dinner, something we don't normally do.
The Screen Savers is dark today. We're adding a netcam booth to the set and they have to install it and relight. We should be good to go by tomorrow. Friday we're dark again to rehearse with the new set.
