This and That: The Weather’s Nice Edition

Pulsar• Peggy has some really nice photos from the Tigers – Blue Jays game. I don’t think the screen detracts from her photos at all. It gives them a “you’re there” feel.

• Over at Meredyth Censullo answers a reader’s question about the work on CR-540A. The short answer: July.

• Lynn Henning deserves a morning off to go fishing, but I’d be careful at Lake Parker.

• The Junior League of Greater Lakeland is sponsoring the World of Reading this Saturday at Barnett Family Park. From 9am to 1pm “kids will enjoy a magical adventure through five countries and receive a free Scholastic book.” The usual inflatables, crafts, and games will be joined by a fire engine and police car. I know where we’ll be before the Tigers – Red Sox game.

• If you’re not into reading then you might enjoy the fourth annual Historic Home and Garden Tour Saturday from Noon to 4 pm. Tickets are on sale that morning at the Sorosis Building (30 Lake Morton Drive). The cost is $10 (cash or check) and the proceeds benefit the Lake Morton Neighborhood Association.

• By the way, the first piece for the Seventh Annual Florida Outdoor Sculpture Competition is installed. That’s a detail from Pulsar, and the other photo is my daughter taking a photo of me shooting the image.
