Good morning.

Cool and pleasant here this morning.

I ended up going to our doctor's offices after hours clinic last night for a case of poison ivy. Probably should have gone in Tuesday, but I kept thinking it would dry up on it's own. I got a steroid shot and some prescription topical cream to use. Have to admit, I am not itching this morning. I didn't think I had disturbed the shoots coming through the fence as I mowed, but the rash on my neck, chin, and arm say differently. II will be in destroy the ivy mode today.

Hope your Friday is a safe one.

Happy Friday!
It was 57 degrees here this morning and now it's just in the low 80s. 
I bought my TSO tickets this morning when the presale started.  I'm disappointed in my seats though.  The past two years I have gotten in quickly enough to get either first or second row seats.  This year I am on row 10 :(  I know it will still be good and it certainly is not the end of the world but it bothers me...
We are headed to Victoria again this weekend to continue clean-up at my MIL's house.
Praying for all those in the path of Irma - stay safe.

Good morning.

57 degrees with sunny skies. No plans for the day.

Thinking of those in the path of Irma.

Good Morning from Smokey Spokane, Washington

Most of my team is gone and headed towards Harvey or Irma...I am still working in Coeur d'Alene closing down this operation until I eventually head somewhere. All staff nationally are either deployed or on high alert; resources are either in place or staged.  Challenging times ahead. 

I am working in my hotel this weekend and packing most of my personal gear/winter clothing to ship home lightening my load in anticipation of extensive travel.

Very mixed feelings:  It is wonderful to be helping in a major disaster....but sad to have to.

Prayers to all in harms way....

Well this will have to be a good evening one for me, we've been busy busy around here. My fianc is 34 weeks now not much more to go before our little girl gets here so we've been on the go like crazy. All is good in our neck of the woods though, you can tell fall is on its way from the cold mornings but the warm evenings reminds you it's still summer.

Good morning.

Know it will be a difficult day for those in the path of Irma and for those with friends and relatives in that path. We have both so will monitor what may hit their areas as the day goes on and keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

If possible, make it a peaceful day.

Good Morning from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Beautiful day on queue which will be nice as it is my last day in Idaho. Sorry I am going to miss autumn here.



We were given short notice over the weekend to shut down and leave.  Many of us are being staged in Alabama to move into Florida/Georgia as soon as possible. Not sure what is in store for me yet.

Irma was not kind as she passed through Florida...and Texas is still reeling from Harvey.....

Hope there is a good week ahead for all of you.

Good morning.

A little rain and gloomy skies in our forecast for today. Not complaining. Looks like the remnants of Irma will not affect us.

Still thinking of those in Irma's path. We did hear from friends in Georgia last night that it was a little eerie watching the trees in their back yard swaying in the high winds, but they were doing fine.

Safe travels, NapCat.

Stay safe, everyone.

Good morning.

Yesterday was cool with a high of only 61. Looks like we'll be back in the 80s today with maybe a little sunshine.

Shopping on my agenda for today.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning.  We are still enjoying cooler mornings in Austin, but the afternoons are getting closer to summer temperatures again.
I had PT again this morning.  For the first time I think I may be getting over the latest flare-up of my heel problems.
Napcat, hope you got home OK.

Be excellent to each other!

Good Morning from the Lighthouse Ranch in Nevada



It is always so good to get home away from all the noise and congestion of the "real world"

I have a long list on my 'to-do" list to get things around the place back in shape after a rough summer unattended....and it looks like wonderful fun!!

Have a great day

Good morning.

Looks like another nice fall day in store.

My boss is on vacation so I'll be going to the arena today to do some paperwork for the upcoming concert on Saturday. Don't anticipate being there for more than an hour or two.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good Morning

'da cat is back in his beloved desert...Partly cloudy, breezy and headed to high 80s this afternoon.

I have a doctor's appointment for bloodwork, then off to town to stock up on supplies

Have a great day.

Good morning.

62 degrees with partly cloudy skies at the moment.

II working tonight so it will be a quiet morning while he sleeps in. I never mind just sitting around, reading.

Hope everyone has a great Friday and their weekend gets off to a good start.

Good Morning

Low 80s with a slight breeze in the desert.

I slept outside last night relishing the silence, the brilliant stars and Milky Way.



It is so good to be home

Happy Friday !!

Good morning.

68 degrees and lots of sunshine with an expected high of 88 or so.

Janet Jackson in concert at the arena tonight. I don't know if I'll be busy or not. II will be coming in at 7PM tonight for a 12 hour shift. It'll be the first time he will work during a concert as his shifts are almost always the night before and after a show. Guess he'll get a chance to see how the other half works.  :P

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Good Morning

Beautiful day in the desert headed...to breezy 90.  The birds are happy to have their feeders full again. 

My best friends are coming over later for good food, good conversation, laughs and giggles.  I have really missed them.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Good morning all. I am excited to announce that we are now 35 weeks along and our baby girl is right around the corner. We are getting last few items put together and then we are all ready for her arrival.

Good Morning

I visited with my friends who watch my ranch while I am out of town and they had some bittersweet news for me.  My loyal friend of 17+ years, the original NapCat (aka: Penguin) passed away peacefully while taking a nap in his favorite chair on the deck.




 While I will miss my little buddy, I am so relieved that after all these years of wandering a desert full of snakes, coyotes, bobcats, cougars, mountain lions, etc,  he crossed the Rainbow Bridge peacefully.



 I am sure he is enjoying a new kittenhood somewhere.

Aw, NapCat, so sorry to hear about Penguin. It is never easy to lose a long time companion no matter how peacefully they leave us.

Good morning.

Fairly easy night last night and I was home by 11:30. Only one other thing on the arena's calendar this month and it won't require many workers. Don't know yet if I'll be asked to work it or not.

Should be a quiet day around hear for me again. I figure II will sleep for a while after he gets home.

Hope everyone has a peaceful Sunday.
