Record setting 106 degree day

It was a hot and miserable day...it set a new record high for this date of 106 degrees.  Went to hang some clothes outside and even though I had long sleeves and my straw hat I could feel the heat penetrating my body.  We were going to go to HEB but decided to postpone our trip until this evening when it would be cooler.

The mare I wrote about yesterday is still there but they moved her rope to get to the area where my car was parked.  Her ice chest was moved as well and hopefully they cleaned it.  I could not stop to check  as we were in a hurry...mother was expecting an important phone call this evening.  However, I will go check on her tomorrow.  I just knew nothing was going to be done about her...it just pisses me off!

Gas has gone down in price and I might just break down and buy their store card to get an additional .12 cents off the price per gallon.


My San Antonio Spurs played Game 6 tonight against the Golden State Warriors. There was less than two minutes left in the fourth quarter when I finally looked out the window to see why the darn neighbors dog had been barking non-stop for the past five minutes.

That is when I saw a horse by the front gate.  Of course the first thing that came to mind was Walter had gotten out of his corral...little Walter couldn't you have waited a little longer...say till the game was over?  Went outside and it wasn't Walter!  It was two horses that were grazing along the side of the road at midnight.  Sorry for the poor quality but as you all know my camera is a POS.




By now even Walter was making his horse noise from his corral and Pacquiao would not shut up either.  It spooked the horses and they moved on.  Just another example of people letting their horses out to graze on other people's land and then claiming that they got out on their own.........grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

    1. Very expensive hobby that many people do not take into consideration when they decide to acquire these high maintenance animals.

  4. I don't know why people have animals that they don't want to care for. Our three pups live a more pampered life than a movie star royalty.

    1. I ask myself that same question Dizzy in particular in reference to Walter.

      Your pups are very lucky indeed for having you and your wife in their life. Heck they go to the beauty shop more frequently than mother and I do :-)
