Took break from the run today and got to work early.
Lunch time we tried something new. Wood Charcoal fired chicken at a shop next to the bodega.
Back home, it is meatballs and spaghetti for dinner.
After dinner back out to West Lake for some fishing. The sun is setting earlier and earlier so no time to waste.
This day in history "Thomas Edison receives a patent for his movie camera, the Kinetograph. Edison had developed the camera and its viewer in the early 1890s and staged several demonstrations.
The camera was based on photographic principles discovered by still-photograph pioneers Joseph Nicephone Niepce and Louis Daguerre of France. In 1877, inventor Edward Muybridge developed a primitive form of motion pictures when Leland Stanford, governor of California, invited him to develop photo studies of animals in motion. Muybridge developed an ingenious system for photographing sequential motion, setting up 24 cameras attached to trip wires stretched across a racetrack. As the horse tripped each wire, the shutters snapped. The resulting series of photos could be projected as something resembling a motion picture. This breakthrough in the early 1870s inspired another student of animal motion, Etienne Jules Marey of France, to develop in 1882 a rotating camera rather like a rifle, where different pictures were taken in a rapid sequence by a rotating cartridge."
Now, we have cameras in our phones. Some are better than the camera costing hundreds of dollars.
At the lake, the fishing is slow. I manage to bass......One them surprised me as my float was pulled under the water suddenly. A big bass took my minnow and made a break for it.

Hurricane Katrina makes landfall near New Orleans, Louisiana, as a Category 4 hurricane on this day in 2005. Despite being only the third most powerful storm of the 2005 hurricane season, Katrina was the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States. After briefly coming ashore in southern Florida on August 25 as a Category 1 hurricane, Katrina gained strength before slamming into the Gulf Coast on August 29. In addition to bringing devastation to the New Orleans area, the hurricane caused damage along the coasts of Mississippi and Alabama, as well as other parts of Louisiana."
Almost to the day, New Orleans got pounded by tropical storm Isacc. Never underestimate the power of an of these named storms.
Kyle heads to tryouts and I head to work. Sue and Luke are planning a day out in Port Jefferson.
Kyle is happy to get a position on the Sachem East Varsity Soccer team. He goes to the beach for the day with Gia.
Sue sends pics of the steamers and soup that she and Luke are eating.
I have meetings that last thru lunch. One of the guys picks me up a blimpies best 6 inch hero. After work I pick up my CSA fruits and veggies ...Two big bags. A large assortment including edamame (soybeans).
Sue promised Kyle some taco bell when he makes the team...she had no doubt that he would. I have to agree....
