They're working on my roof A/C unit right now.
Got up to 92 degrees in here yesterday. Blech.
Bought a pretty powerful floor fan from Lowe's that made it BEARable.
Fingers crossed.

Interesting (I guess) From the bridge's Wiki page:

"On September 1, 1983, the Lorain–Carnegie bridge was officially renamed the "Hope Memorial Bridge"; initial reports claimed the new name was chosen in honor of William Henry "Harry" Hope, a local stonemason who helped build the Guardians of Traffic sculptures, and the father of comedian and former Cleveland resident Bob Hope. In the years since the dedication, however, claims have varied as to who exactly the bridge's name honors. Some have claimed the bridge was renamed specifically for Bob Hope; others the entire Hope family; and still others have claimed it recognizes Harry Hope along with the other workers who helped erect the giant sandstone pylons."

We had 'technical difficulties' with the nav system once we got to Santa Ana/Orange County and got back 3 hrs late (3 am). Ugh.
So I'm hanging with the birds for a bit before I go to bed.
All the passengers were pretty chill about the delay and (mostly) mask compliant.

Ha. Was just about to post this.
I loved PHM.

Also DMM, If you haven't read William Gibson's The Peripheral yet it should be your next book.
I'm currently reading and enjoying The Song of Achilles, but I don't know that it would be your jam.

I'll be cheering for Berrettini and I'm really hoping for a great match tomorrow.
And it's NOT just because he's an insanely hot Italian guy.
