no sale

Well, my motorcycle didn't sell, so I put it away for another winter. I didn't even ride this summer. Not once. I didn't miss it, either. I will likely put the bike up again next spring, but I reserve the right to change my mind. But, without my riding buddy (Lizzy), it seems unlikely.

lucky

This was an interesting enough character study about a 90 year old man who is living out his last days in the desert. While I did not find it particularly funny, it fell under the dramedy category.

My rating: 3/5

pet first aid

Brian and I took a series of pet first aid classes at Penn Highlands, the last of which was last night. We found it pretty informative, but due to having 6 dogs over the past 22 years, we have already lived through quite a number of pet emergencies. Still, I thought the class was worthwhile and would definitely consider taking more classes there in the future.

won't you be my neighbor?

The three of us are obsessed with Mr. Rogers for some reason, so we watched this documentary last night. It was pretty interesting and we all enjoyed it. Unlike Brian and me, Jake did not grow up watching Mr. Rogers. But he has somehow been exposed to him recently and now wants me to knit him all of the cardigans.

My rating: 4/5

one perfect lie

This was a nice departure from Lisa Scottoline's usual lawyer fare. While it did have some cheap tricks in it, overall it was an entertaining read. I can't really say what it's about because the actual plot is a spoiler. The author lures you in and makes you think the story's going to go one way, and then it goes in a completely different direction (that would be one of the cheap tricks).

My rating: 3.5/5
