Having a generally good time out on Fire Island. Lots of things going on. Spent almost all day it seems working on fire department stuff or dock stuff. Smokey sure is happy that she gets to see more of me. I come home and read the Hunger Games books. I am on the last book now and can just not put it down. Great story that really draws you in. The Community Association meeting was today at 10am. Had a great turn out of people for the meeting. Then worked in the dock office on time cards. Never dull out here. While I was in the office, we had a woman break her toe on the dock so had to drive her back to her house. Ok, enough rest time. Back to my book.

Just relaxing out on the island. Smokey is just loving it. She was not sure what was up during the hour plus car ride and then a noisy boat ride but now after checking the entire place out, she has been seen relaxing in the windows just enjoying herself. Today she got to spend the entire day with me instead of being by herself and home wondering when Sparky would come home and feed her. I am out here all next week except for a small trip to Syosset one day so it was a good time to bring her out. Have been down to the dock this morning and around town a little. Finished off the little work that I needed to get done and then back home to do some reading. Right now I am reading the 2nd book of the Hunger Games series Catching Fire. So far I am really enjoying it.

Went into the city tonight after work for an Imperial Court meeting and to swing by the HOP office to sign checks. Have to pack and pull myself together for a trip to Fire Island tomorrow morning.

Well I am tired but well rested I think. I am ready to head back home tomorrow morning. Miss Smokey.
Here are a few shots from the Invasion of the Pines on Wednesday. First there is me walking the red carpet in The Pines after I got off the boat. Then the other picture on the right is the Chief Jill saluting the crowd as I blew a CO2 extinguisher to hail the fire departments arrival at the annual invasion event. That is me in the white just behind the pole on the left side of the picture. Had a fun time. Jumped on a water taxi and came right back to the Grove.

Big thunderstorm just came over out of practically no where. 1/2" hale associated with it. Closed down the windows and just rode it out. Lots of wind too. Helped the humidity a bit. It's been hot out here but the breeze has been nice. Have to head to Syosset for work tomorrow and then back to the island after some shopping.
