Pixar's Partly Cloudy

Pixar’s latest short animated film is called Partly Cloudy and they’re packaging it with their hit feature, Up.

I hadn’t heard anything about the short. In fact, I thought I was watching the beginning of Up. Partly Cloudy absolutely knocked me on my can. I’ve never seen anything like it. The animation is breathtaking. The story is pure magic. It’s laugh out loud funny too.

Nice goin’, Pixar.


My writing goal for last week was 10,000 words and five stories. I ended up hitting almost 5,000 words and finishing just one story. The second story, a high school memoir, is almost there. Hopefully, I can pick it up this week. I’m setting a goal of 15,000 words.


The family and I celebrated Independence day with a trip to the movies, a swim, steaks, hot dogs and potato salad, a swim, and a couple of fireworks shows. The first pyrotechnical display was presented by my neighbor, Joe. The festivities were cut short when his roof caught fire. Don’t worry he was able to put the thing out in no time with his handy garden hose. We took the kids to the park to watch the city of Chandler’s half hour long fireworks display.
