Good Morning and Happy Friday

Cool, breezy morning in the desert, headed to 80s.  We have a second growing season in this part of the country and things are just jumping out of the ground....keeps me (happily) busy.

Hope everyone has fun weekend plans.

Good morning.

Katt Williams at the arena tonight. It seems forever since I worked 3 days in a row. Guess I'll survive.

The fish fry seemed to be a success, but it sure took a long time for us to get the building emptied. Oh well, that meant more time on the clock for me.

Hope your weekend is all you were wanting/needing.

Good Morning

I am off to Death Valley to see a special presentation about Scotty's Castle which was severely damaged in flash floods two years ago.



I worked as a seasonal Ranger there for three years.....miss the work and friends.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Good morning.

A late night last night with a mostly slow, boring evening for me. Finished a book and played a game and sat for most of the evening. But, the crowd of almost 5,000 did exit the building speedily so I was home just after midnight.

Hope your Sunday is a peaceful one.

Good Morning

Beautiful Sunday morning in the desert, but with high winds and blowing dust expected tonight....probably my fault for washing windows !! Ha !  I bought a Sago Palm that needs planting and have to take my truck and trailer to a friend's place to help clear out some accumulated brush....Sunday Dump Run !  What could be better ??

Hope everyone is having a restful day...

It is 80 degrees here in Derwood today.
It has been dry for 20 days. Very light rain this am.  Thunderstorms expected tonight - Nate's leftovers starting to come in.

Good morning.

66 degrees with a slight chance of scattered thunderstorms.

Plans are to do a little housework, maybe a little shopping.

Hope everyone's week is off to a good start.

Good Morning

Sunny, cool and breezy in the desert....my kind of day.  I may not do anything more ambitious than filling the bird feeders. 



Hope it is a 3 day weekend for most of you.

Nope. I didn't know it was a 3-day weekend for anyone.

Good morning.

A foggy morning in store. Not a problem for me, it will have burned off before I have to go anywhere.

The eye doctor changed II's contacts; said his problem wasn't due to cataracts. He tried to put the new ones in Friday evening, but one package was empty. So yesterday, we made another trip to the optometrist's office to get another one. So far, the new ones seem to be working. He wore mono lens before, the new ones are multi-focal.

Have a great day!

We got a cold front!!  It was 62 or so when I got up and now it's down in the 50s!

Have an awesome day.

Good morning.

I won't say autumn has arrived, but it might be closer. We're at 54 this morning with an expected high of 75. But, we'll be back in the 90s by Saturday. Looks like a good day to do some stuff outside.

We're also getting ready for a short trip the first of next week to see II's mom. She moved to his sister's as her health is continuing to deteriorate.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning.  It was 57 when I got up this morning.  I need to get a light jacket back in the car because it was a little chilly walking in from the parking lot.

Good Morning

72 in the desert, headed to breezy 80s. Locust Trees are dropping small yellow leaves, Pampus Grasses are in bloom, Pyracantha are putting out orange berries, and roses are re-blooming.....all signs of desert Autumn.  Just delightful.

Hope everyone's week is going well.

Good morning.

Yesterday was a lovely day, today should be also even though it will be a little warmer.

Taking the car in for an oil change this morning while II sleeps in as he has to work tonight. No other plans for the day.

Have a good day.

Good morning!
It's still nippy here in Austin today.
I'm a pretty happy camper this week.  I ordered a new Kindle for my birthday and tonight we are going to see Eddie Izzard for our anniversary.  I've been listening to his book when at the gym.  He reads it himself and he wanders all of the place just like he does in his standup.  I am sure that people at the gym think I'm crazy because I'm laughing out loud on the elliptical or bike or whatever.
Have a wonderful day.

Andra, I'll second the birthday and anniversary greetings.

Good morning.

Had to make an early morning run to the store for a few things for our lunches at work tonight. Jason Aldean at the arena tonight. I'm going in earlier than usual so I can babysit the concourse for a few hours before reporting to my usual spot during the concert. Looks like it'll be 12-13 hours on the clock.

Hope your weekend gets off to a good start.

Good Morning

Beautiful day in the desert....I have to go to "town" for supplies and plan to take an off-road route through a Fish & Wildlife Refuge...should be a pleasant drive with some great photo ops !

LL: Jason Aldean is one of my favorite country singers.  He will have some interesting comments prior to his show...he was performing on stage when the terrifying attack started in Las Vegas last week.

Happy Friday all !!

Good morning.

Looks like a nice day in store. We'll be busy getting ready for a short trip.

I am in the backstage area of the arena during shows, but I don't get to see anything or anybody. Security was a little heightened for the show last night (no surprise at that), but things seemed to flow smoothly and we didn't have any major problems or unexpected issues of any sort. It was, however, a late night and a long day.

Hope your weekend is going well.

Sunny and Breezy in the desert. Hopefully the wind will clear the smoke from California fires out. I have lots of planting to do today.  (Aw Gee.....)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Good morning from Sunny N California. It is nice crisp morning. We are over 5o miles away but pray for the areas affected by fires...
