My week of reviews coincides nicely with Eli’s week-long vacation. Since his stellar performance Saturday, Eli has done naught but lounge and stood (apparently quite well) for a little (or maybe a lot of) body work. Texas is so damnably hot right now anyway, I don’t miss riding. Who wants to ride when it is still 100F at 8 pm? But the Persieds presage autumn; our ephemeral suffering will give way to cashmere season!
