Currently, it's 25˚ C and sunny in Fort Erie. Normally, 24˚ C is just about the upper limit of my comfort zone, but it's nice and breezy, so it's all good. Tonight's predicted low is 12˚ C, and tomorrow's predicted high is 22˚ C. There's only a 10% chance of precipitation, so I may be able to catch up on my mowing.
(What with there being el humungo logs all over the yard for three weeks after contractors took down the ash tree which used to provide shade for the house [drat those emerald ash borers!], and me being on the other side of the world for a week and a half, the yard looks more like something out of Better Hovels and Dumps than Better Homes and Gardens. A few weeks ago, one of our neighbours struck fear into the hearts of the light of my life and the delight of my eyes and I by telling us, "Your home is kind of a showcase for the neighbourhood since it's on the corner." Our poor neighbours!)
On the plane home, I finally watched The Peanuts Movie, which was released back in 2015. It was unexpectedly moving for me. I didn't anticipate how strongly I would identify with Charlie Brown in this particular storyline. (For those who haven't seen it yet, Charlie Brown's plot is about him wishing that he could overcome his past failures [and work up the nerve] so he could get together with the Little Red-Haired Girl.) I so know what it's like to be enamoured of a gorgeous redhead who's so far out of my league it's like she's playing a different sport. And, also like him, I've experienced having said gorgeous redhead, against all reasonable expectation, actually like me.
We miss you, Sparky.
Genealogically, I'm continuing my efforts to restock the lists on the Let others know what locations you are working on page by adding heads of state or heads of government for countries, premiers and lieutenant governors for provinces, and governors for states. (And, where I can't find any unconnected politicians to list, I'm taking notables from Aleš's reports.) So far, I have gotten from the bottom of the list up as far as Switzerland. I have also added sections for some of the U.S. territories, which haven't been anywhere near as well covered as the actual states. (Somebody, or a whole bunch of somebodies, has/have gone through and added profiles [with succession boxes and pictures] for nearly every state governor I've looked for, and a bunch of governors for the territories which eventually became states, too. Those territories which are currently still territories, not so much.)
I'm still working through my second pass at Slades on ThePeerage.com, I'm checking up on the sourcing level for each Slade, and improving the sources where I can. But that's at a lower level of activity for now.
