|At my daughter's friend's house --- this is how young men in college|
entertain themselves, one drags the contraption and the other practices roping.
Only in Texas, well, maybe not.
|Surprising blooms this week, in spite of the heat and drought. |
Is this a Trumpet Vine?
|Last weekend, in College Station, Texas and you can see|
the results of drought conditions by looking at the ground and shrubs.
|Last weekend, Deputy Dave and his brother Kevin are trying to get|
an early start on the water...I sure do love these fishermen. Good guys.
A serious situation we face in drought conditions are fires. This weekend, there will be Fourth of July celebrations and this means there will be people playing with fireworks who do not care about the home next door melting in a fire. The Fourth of July will be a night that finds us on pins and needles.
|Another remembrance of Hurricane Ike damage. A fishing boat|
pushed onto land by high waters and left there to ruin.
|There are scenes like this in our area, even today, harshly reminding|
us of Hurricane Ike's devastation.
|Another shot from College Station, Texas this past week as we were|
touring the wedding venue for our daughter and her fiance. Land is crusty!
|Deputy Dave kayaking and starting to see the rays of sunshine |
break through the clouds with a bit of silver lining!
|Mrs. Speckles and her four chicken girl-pals are waiting anxiously for rain|
as they take leisurely strolls around the backyard.
Rain, Rain don't stay away,
We need you here...please, today!
