Note this morning’s temp on the screen…54F!! Yes!!! Fall is coming!!



What happens when you get a foot of rain in a few weeks?

The grass grows…who knew?!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Texas panhandle green and lush-not to the extent it is now and definitely not in August!

No complaints, just lots of mowing to be done!  


I’m not quite sure what constitutes plague status in the world of entomology-but I guarantee we have been close this summer.


I do believe we’ve gotten about 5 inches of rain in the past 4 days.  Most of it just heavy rain, no hail and no tornadoes.  Tonight, however, it got a little rowdy.  High winds, hail, tornadic stuff in the area.  All is well, at least here, but got some great pics!

I have been sending these pics out to friends and family all night.  It occurs to me that I’m not sure I’d want to live anywhere where my sky view is limited.  It’s also another great reason to live off grid–no power lines in my pics!!!!


June bug…

Smallest June bug ever. The largest one I’ve ever seen was in south Texas. It was the size of a Cadbury egg.

Bricks done.
