24 hours.....

11:12 am - Sunday - September 1st - Ramona, CA - 85° F, 50% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the west by northwest.....clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 95° F.

Saturday was kind of a wash for us.  We knew it was going to be a hot one (forecast high of 97° F), so we just stayed inside all day.  Years ago, maybe a dozen, we used to binge watch the TV series "24".  At the time the premise used by this series was totally unique.  It was shot in real time, meaning that each of 24 seasonal episodes covered 60 minutes of time.....one hour.  Each season covered just a single 24 hour period in the lives of CTU agents (CTU = Counter Terrorism Unit) in the L.A. office.  Keifer Sutherland played the part of Jack Bauer, a bad ass CTU agent, who did not believe in coloring inside the lines......he did whatever was necessary to end terror threats.  There were eight seasons in all, and the series ran through 2010.  We used to buy the DVD set at the end of each season and watch all 24 episodes starting just before New Years Eve each year, and usually finishing sometime early morning on New Years day.  We would usually finish about 3 am on New Years.

Well, it has been 9, or 10 years since we last watched seasons 1 and 2, so we began watching them about a week ago, and finished the last 14 episodes of season 2 around 7 pm Saturday evening.  It's been so long since we watched "24" that it was almost, but not quite, like watching them for the first time.  It's probably the first time in a long time we have just done nothing on a Saturday, and it felt good.  I think I walked outside briefly for about 2 minutes one time all day long.

And that was it for Saturday.....thanks for stopping by!
