The Good Life
OK -- this is the life. Chad's done with school, I have no looming deadlines (except my column, but I'm so used to writing those that it hardly counts), and we got a summer membership to the neighborhood pool. We are determined to get our money's worth so we are planning to go just about every day it's open. Oh -- and we have a freezer full of Pop Ice. I've had worse days.
Julia and I have recruited Chad into our Nancy Drew cult. Chad and I had given Julia the "Danger on Deception Island" PC game for Christmas and she and I got hooked. Since we finished that one, we've also solved "The Haunted Carousel," "Secret of the Old Clock," and "Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon." Now Chad has gotten into "Secret of Shadow Ranch" and the three of us are trying to solve it at once. We all have separate games going, so it is kind of confusing. Julia's also loving Nancy Drew books. In fact, she just finished "The Secret of Shadow Ranch" today. We're anxious to see if the game turns out like the book did. Anyway, the games say they are for ages 10 & up, but even for 34-year-olds -- they are hard! They really make you use your brain.
