Dear Readers,

I know it has been a while. There's not much to tell.

I apologize to those in parched places, but we had a gully washer here this afternoon. If I could have sent it your way, believe me, I would have. The thunderstorm that came first was - hmm - shocking almost? I think I must be losing it, but as lightning hit nearby, I swear that I saw a bright red ball of light shoot through the window and headed for Jill. LOUD thunder with that one. I heard it as I saw it pass through the room. It was like one of those laser lights, you know? Shock collars were taken off immediately. The storm had to be right overhead. A few minutes later, Kablam, my computer screamed, it was bright white outside in the flash. DH said it looked like it hit between the oaks. We will examine tomorrow. Scared all of us, not just the dogs.

Picture is of my number 3 son - J. He was here last weekend, cannot remember why. I took a picture of him and his mustache. I think it looks pretty good! (Not that I would want one, I would probably slap myself silly in my sleep, thinking it was a bug or spider on my cheek.)

My presence is getting thin on the web. FB is so full of hate and politics. Everyone has an agenda. Meh.

I am a lousy writer, and have no business even trying, but I am at it again. The story may not make sense, but then again, few will ever see. It keeps me out of trouble. I ordered some wrist things and they help with the pain. I slept through, all night, last night. First time in months.

Sparrow Hall is looking pretty rough. The rosy house finches have all but abandoned me. I still have lots of sparrows and doves. I suppose I will see more variety again as fall nears. That won't be long, I think. The redheaded woodpecker was here in Sparrow Hall the other day for a look-see. I'm not fast enough to get the shots I want. Bleep.
Take care of yourselves!

    1. Writing keeps me - happy, sad, frustrated, excited, angry(at myself) - pretty much every emotion hits me. I guess I could live in a made-up world when I go out of my mind. Haha. Yep, the Col would be proud!

  4. You have a very handsome son and I'm glad you're safe after the storm. Years ago I remember something similar with lightening at my Mom's house. A phone pole did get struck another time, and shorted everything in the house, including the phone. Stay safe, and know that you're being thought of!! Take care!!

    1. We have had the phone lines struck twice since we moved in here. Killed the phones both times. I do love the light from all the windows in this house, but they are hard to stay away from in a storm. I have a healthy respect for electricity.

  5. That's what called a handlebar, right? My finches have left also. I so miss their happy songs first thing in the mornings. Their nests have now been taken down as well, so I guess it is a good thing they are gone. The nests have been here for years, but the house will be pinted and fixed so they had to come down..

    1. I haven't the foggiest, Inger. I think of a cartoon character(Snydly Whiplash) when I see them. Hee Hee.
      Yes, I miss the finches too.

    1. Well, thank you, I never thought about looks having anything to do with intelligence. Something to ponder.
      Thank you for the visit! :)

I've taken a long break. Sorry. Using comment moderation, I think.
