July 30, 2006
Grandma Betty Radina and Debbie Radina came by the BBB suite yesterday afternoon. The kids had over a bunch of their friends, Ursula, Rachel, Andy and Biggy Bill (Bill Glenn). They all hung out by the pool and played volleyball and got too much sun. Mom and dad visited with Grandma, took a nap and read.

Last night we rented an in-room movie, Inside Man, the Spike Lee film starring Denzel Washington, Jody Foster and Clive Owen, about a bank robbery gone terribly right. I really liked it. Very clever and tight plotting (Something I’m especially interested in, as we’re storyboarding the top secret project.) It cost $11.99 to rent. Speaking of which, Deena was looking at room service this morning and an “American Breakfast” (two eggs, bacon and toast) is $24 plus an automatic 21% gratuity and tax and something else. Basically to get breakfast delivered it costs north of $30 per person. We decided to go off site to have breakfast.

Yesterday, my son, the camp counselor, told me the following:

TB: How many ADD kids does it take to screw in a light bulb?

BBB: I don’t know. How many Attention Deficit Disorder kids does it take?

TB: Let’s go ride bikes!

Got up this morning, drank coffee and basically solved all the war problems in the Middle East and beyond. My kind of Sunday morning. Drove over to the Good Egg for breakfast (five of us ate for $33, see room service item above). Checked out at 11, drove home. Big rain during the night. Standing water everywhere. Got out to the house and dogs were thrilled to see me (Every day is Christmas Day to a dog). Took them on a bike ride. Came back and read the paper by the pool. Kathy and Tomas went to Costco for groceries.

I came out to the studio and looked at my recent efforts and made a vow to push myself farther. Why?
