Winds of Fall

Began the morning with breakfast and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. Daniel uses all the glitter on his picture at school, leaving none for Miss Elaina's poster. "Daniel Thinks of Others" after Teacher Harriet scolds him, and he remembers to leave purple clay for Katerina's wand and Prince Wednesday's block tower. "Daniel Thinks of What Margaret Needs" when he and Elaina opt to play outside, rather than in the house where his sister is trying to take a nap.

Went straight to work as soon as the cartoon ended. Work was on-and-off steady, not quite as bad as yesterday. The cloudy, humid, windy weather may have scared some people off. Others weren't in great moods, or were demanding or frustrating. Thankfully, it slowed down enough by 4 PM to allow me to get off on time with no trouble.

Spent the next few hours after I changed writing. Ira finally manages to yank down Richard's hood without being interrupted, revealing his true identity to one and all. He explains that he's a nobleman whose lands were taken by the Queen for taxes and given to Ira. He and his men fled and became outlaws, rather than become servants to the demanding Sheriff. 

Broke for dinner at quarter of 7. Had leftovers and made Pineapple Pumpkin Muffins while watching The Road to El Dorado. I go further into this rousing Dreamworks animated musical adventure at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog.

Finished the night online with two Super Password episodes on Buzzr. Blonde bombshell Elaine Joyce and towering Richard Moll made one of the series' most unlikely pairs in these two episodes from 1985. In the first episode, Richard was so happy he got his contestant through the Super Password bonus round with time to spare, he did a very strange little dance before the camera.
