  1. Sunset tonight at Tanque Verde swap meet (my first time in decades) with children’s activities, the Bookmobile, and information about the summer reading program. “The 3 Little Fishes and the Big Bad Shark” play was presented (bilingually in Spanish/English), with a humorous, very hungry shark looking for 3 fishes (aka fish tacos, fish & chips, fish sticks, fish burgers). A very cute play, under the sea, based on a library book. Read this summer.
