On the beach. Still raining here. The cabana boy is wondering if he should take up race-walking, which they’re doing at the Olympics right now. It reminds me of a scene from "When Harry Met Sally", which cabana boy loves!

Happily ashore. Beautiful day in Central Pennsylvania--no rain but we wish we could get some.

Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.
