Chernobyl Mushroom

Chernobyl Mushroom
When I left for work this morning, I was shocked to find how it had suddenly turned warm again, and with the those temperatures, the chiggers were back out in force. Oh how I despise those nasty creatures. By the time mid-afternoon arrived, it was registering 94 degrees in the Downtown. It was sort of creepy cool when seeing the sun at a much lower … continue reading

Totally out of Character

Totally out of Character
My first order of business on this bleak and misting day, was to get some prep work done for today's open house at Prairie Place on 1st condominiums.  By the time I had everything readied,  the hour had come for me to get over to St. Paul Lutheran Church and run thru all the hymns and service music they had scheduled.  Since it was communion Sun … continue reading

Full of Beans

Full of Beans
This was another "whoosh" day with all the little personal projects I had on my plate, and fortunately, I managed to get everything done I wanted, and then some.  Thank goodness I decided to get all my mowing out of the way this morning because before noon arrived, I heard there's a 60% chance of rain tomorrow.I think the botanists with their … continue reading

Between a Bun

Between a Bun
Our weather has certainly cooled down in a hurry to where I actually had to turn the heater on in my car this morning as I was traveling to work.  But what can we expect when knowing we're on a fast track out of our month of September?  It doesn't surprise me in the least when knowing we haven't even had a light frost considering how climate chan … continue reading

They Were Made Believers

They Were Made Believers
The first thing I had to do this morning was to contact several people to get some documents corrected.  For the strangest reason, I had a "feeling" there was something wrong, and wouldn't you know it, there was.  In spite of my initial anxiety over it all, we did manage to get everything back on track which was all I wanted.Another block of … continue reading

Nasty Chiggers

Nasty Chiggers
I was a bit surprised we didn't get rain last night, but that's fine by me because I think we've had enough for a while. With the wind having changed directions and now coming from the north, I don't think it even broke 70 degrees today. The one positive thing about it being cooler, we weren't being attacked by those nasty chiggers that've returned … continue reading

A Friend In Need

A Friend In Need
It was an absolutely beautiful morning with the sun shining and pleasant temps, but as the hours passed and the afternoon arrived, I found it getting a bit too warm for my liking. It sounds like we've got another storm coming our way tonight, and let's hope it's not going to be one of those with high winds.The hours seemed to fly by with all th … continue reading

Drastic Price Reduction

Drastic Price Reduction
Thank goodness the sun was shining today because I was beginning to wonder if we were entering the realm of Water World. I did look at the weather forecast and it sounds like we may be getting some severe storms beginning late tomorrow, and then another possibility toward the weekend. At least the meteorologists are predicting no vortex conditions … continue reading

Macaroni Sandwiches

Macaroni Sandwiches
Having got myself up and out of the house early, I figured I might as well take in an early church Service.  Thank goodness I arrived early enough to find a seat near the rear which for me is always a more comfortable place because I'd rather be looking at the backs of the heads of others instead of all the many more looking at mine.They were … continue reading

The Acts of a Few

The Acts of a Few
These dark and rainy days are getting to be rather annoying to the point where it's almost like the movie "Ground Hog Day", and you can be sure the temperaments of the general public has been reflective of it. I haven't heard anything to substantiate it, but I'd wager this southerly wind and rain is the by-product of the pounding Texas is getting f … continue reading
