Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Another summer is starting to wind down and soon we will be able to open our windows and enjoy
some fresh, non-air-conditioned air, but not yet! September is frequently the month where we might
get a slight tease of a hint of a possibility of a suggestion of cooler air, but by and large we will
have to wait for October. With luck this September will not bring us anything like Hermine brought us
The outing to the Caverns in Marianna was great fun! Some of us gathered and car pooled over, some
met us there, by the time we were done there were 9 of us around the table enjoying an oddly-served
lunch after the cave tour. Some of us also enjoyed walking one of the trails prior to the tour, which
was quite an adventure in finding solid footing in places given how wet it had been. I just love these
group outings and I'm delighted that so many of you enjoy them as well! This month we have a group outing
a bit closer to home - we will go to the Challenger Learning Center the morning of Saturday, September
9 for a movie. As of this writing (a month in advance) I don't know what will be showing, so we may opt
for a show in the digital dome, or we may opt for a 3-D movie in the IMAX, or just a regular IMAX feature,
and of course the cost of each will vary, so take that into consideration. But whatever we opt to see,
I've no doubt it will be fun and entertaining, and we may decide to enjoy lunch together afterwards.
Watch the calendar for details to firm up as we get closer to the event.
This month also kicks off the start of the Lord of the Rings movies now that we have
completed The Hobbit series. And of course we have our long-standing monthly dinner meeting on the
3rd Wednesday of the month. Check the calendar and find something that interests you. Nothing appeals?
Feel free to make suggestions! We're all volunteers here, and we welcome new ideas and fun things to do!
Happy September, Everyone!
