I trust I will be in better hands than Curly.

Treaty of Paris, which formally ended the American Revolutionary War, was signed on September 3, 1783. The unfinished painting, by Benjamin West, shows the American delegation, John Jay, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Laurens and Temple Franklin. The British diplomats refused to pose for the painting.

Deep Space Climate Observatory spacecraft recently captured this picture of the moon passing between the spacecraft and Earth. From Earth, you can only see one side of the moon, but this image shows the far side of the moon.

Barley's after the Primary Players auditions. I had pizza, specifically the white pie with sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and Italian sausage. It sounds like an odd combination, but it is very good. As you can see, across the street the Capitol Theater was having some work done on its marquee.

Joey, Sarah and Jake
Jake has been talking about moving here from Kingston Springs from some time, with the conversations with his mother about it becoming more serious of late. There was talk yesterday that he might be heading this way, but when I went to bed he was to stay the night with a friend. When I got up this morning, his truck was parked on the street in front of the house, so after breakfast we helped him bring in his clothes and worked on making some space in our upstairs bonus room, which will serve as his bedroom until the lad can get himself to work and get an apartment of his own. Needless to say, his mother is overjoyed.
Meanwhile, his brother Joey moved into his first college apartment this week up in Clarksville after living in the dorms last year. He and three friends have an apartment together, and from the pictures I've seen, it looks pretty nice, much better than the garage apartment I lived in up on Fort Sanders hill when I first moved out of the house.

Sherry has taken Sarah to audition for a part in the upcoming Primary Players production of The Little Mermaid, Jr. She has to both sing and do a spoken monologue. I tried to get her to do Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" speech, but her mother convinced her to do Sally in the pumpkin patch berating Linus after the Great Pumpkin turned out to be just Snoopy. As I usually do on Saturday mornings, I ran errands around town.
The girls were going to have bagels at the audition, so I started out with a chicken sandwich for my breakfast at the Bojangles on the parkway before hauling our recycling to the recycling center and then doing our weekly grocery shopping. I suspect that the Primary Players gang will grab lunch somewhere after the auditions conclude, and Sherry's going to come pick me up so I can join them if that is the case. Mom was talking about coming over for a visit thereafter, so we should have a fairly busy Saturday when it is all said and done with.
