In Texas we have six months of Summer. It starts in May and doesn’t really cool down until November. Spring, Fall and Winter are allowed two months each. They are so fast! Here it is October and we had a heat index of 99 degrees. Friday we will be lucky to get out of the fifties and then Monday we’ll be back in the eighties. … Continue reading Waiting on a Cool Front
It’s Monday and regardless of having to go to work or being retired it’s not a good day. I always expect more of me, but I’m only capable of so much. It’s especially difficult when it’s the last day of September and the temperature is 92 degrees with 67 percent humidity. Working outside is sweaty! I have this spring cleaning thing down to about four … Continue reading Monday’s Suck!

It’s still in the 90’s in Central Texas, but in my mind I’m waiting for a crisp morning, cooler days and for the leaves to take over the yard. I’m looking forward … Continue reading Halloween Ghouls
Within the last month I’ve had two old friends contact me about money available for the old, retired, disabled and sick. These are coming from acquaintances more than real friends. They say my name is on a list for money – as in someone is actually giving me money. Ha! The first one was from an old acquaintance from years ago. She moved to Houston … Continue reading Oh To Be Old
I’ve been busy with dogs and making old things new – or at least nicer than what they were. The dogs are just a mess! Bruce managed to lose his dog collar along with the flea collar. We’ve looked everywhere and still haven’t found it. I bet it was one of two things – he got his nosy self somewhere he shouldn’t have been and … Continue reading Old is Now New
