Today's Troubadour post is coming to you from my sister's beautiful mission style living room in Cave Creek, Arizona. Ghost Adventurers is on TV. My niece watches the show while ridiculing it every few minutes.
Hot is the word for today. Outside temperatures according to the car's digital display range between 104 and 109 depending on the road surface. I look out the window at the back courtyard. Normally, I'd go outside for a nice poolside read. I'm working my way through a book on World War I naval warfare. I'm thinking of gathering the inflatables and staging a reenactment of the Falkland Islands Battle in the backyard pool. I'm sure my nephew and niece would appreciate the historical simulation. Should the water wings represent the British or German dreadnoughts? One step outside and onto the hot tile convinces me to surrender the battle and retreat back into the comfort of 72 degree air conditioning.
The Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center will be closed next week so Central School can clean and wax the floors. School starts in two weeks. The summer has gone by too fast. I'll be her for a week or so with plenty of time to work on a few to do items from my Project Voyager Gotta Do List. One of the items is to finish the Writer's Guide to the Voyager's new sci-fi universe. Writing a new Long Duration Mission for our Voyager Cadets is something else I'd like to accomplish. I'll keep you posted.
Voyager Cadets, this will be an awesome school year with our new Voyager simulator. If you're not a member of our club, now is the time to join. Go to ProjectVoyager.org for more information.
