Hi there, Dear Reader. It’s Monday, January 16, 2023 – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the United States – and here in Lithia, Florida, it is late morning. It’s chilly – 57°F/14°C under sunny skies – and even though it’s going to warm up to 67°F/19°F and the afternoon will be sunny and nice, I will hold off on writing the long-promised review of Code-Name Downfall until the temperature rises a bit more. The even chillier temperature before sunrise woke me up – at 5:33 AM – to answer the call of nature, and even though I was able to get an additional two hours of sleep after my return from the bathroom, it was still an unpleasant wakeup.
So instead of a review, today’s post will be a “coming attractions” sort of thing. After all, the cold snap will end and temperatures will rise to the mid-70s/20s by Thursday, and even though I am not the kind of writer who likes formal outlines or ironclad plans, I do like having a general idea about what I’ll want to write about in A Certain Point of View, Too.
Obviously, the one “sure” item on my agenda is the review of Code-Name Downfall; I have already set my mind to writing that, and I’ve done some preliminary (and boring, and time-consuming) work on it. All I need is warmer weather and I’ll be good to go, so to speak.
Other likely blog posts will include:
- A review of a Star Wars The Black Series six-inch scale action figure
- Remembering the start of Operation Desert Storm (January 17, 1991)
- A possible discussion of the various Mobile Defense skirmishes I have played on Regiments
- A tentative review of Groundhog Day, which I watched on 4K UHD disc yesterday
I will cut this post short here; I ate some Honey Nuts Cheerios earlier, but I have not brewed any coffee yet. Cold weather often – not always – makes me drowsy or less inclined to be active, and I’m not fully functional unless I have had at least one cup of coffee in the morning. So I will soon be in the kitchen brewing some Folger’s Coffee and maybe reading or watching TV for a while.
So, until next time, Dear Reader, stay safe, warm, and healthy, and I’ll catch you on the sunny side of things.
