We've been "enjoying" a mini heat wave the past few days. 'Twould be nice to have air conditioning for the few days a year it actually gets above room temperature here.

Stampede Week has been in full swing. I've managed to avoid most of the festivities, which mainly consist of office workers drinking gallons of beer and dancing to country music. I do enjoy seeing people on horseback in the streets, stagecoaches, tipis, etc. but, being an old sourpuss, can do without the Yahoo! aspects. Yesterday we watched square dancers on the mall for a few minutes. Cowboys kept asking L to dance, so we moved on. Then, as we browsed in a bookstore, we saw Indians on horseback passing by. So it's kind of a fun week, apart from the boozing & partying, and it's only grumps like me who don't enjoy that too!
