What a difference a day makes

Yesterday it was warm and sunny and today a cold front came in accompanied by heavy rain and thunder...yep, Texas weather!

I am officially out of peak Internet GB's so I got up early this morning to do all I needed to do, online speaking using my Off-Peak GB's.  I have not noticed a slowdown but I have not logged out either.

I am a little worried about the dogs.  Tammie and Oscar were not here at 6:00 a.m. and Pedrito was sleeping in Tammie's bed.  I noticed that he did not have his collar with his red registration. That collar is hard to take off, it belonged to the only dog I have ever had in my life...he died twenty years ago.

It is not rare that the dogs would not be here but what is rare is that Pedrito was not hungry and he looked strange like he was afraid.  I do not think it had anything to do with the rain and thunder, he is used to that.  I examined him closely and it does not appear like he was in a fight.

I need to load the car as we have an out-of-town trip coming up but it will have to wait until the rain is over.  On the plus side, I was able to fill up my two 32 gallon trash cans (used only for this purpose) along with miscellaneous five-gallon buckets on my homemade rain catchment system. Could have probably harvested more but I am out of containers.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


Spurs Corner

I was so upset yesterday I could not even discuss the game we played against the New York Knicks. Somehow I had a feeling this was going to happen like it did back...was it two years ago when Derrick Fisher was still their coach?

I am not upset because we lost a game, it happens and it will happen again...but to the New York Knicks?  They are one of the worst teams in the NBA.....grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

I was never a fan of the LaMurcos Aldridge trade, but what do I know?  I trust Pop but even he must be wondering why this very well remunerated player has not lived up to the expectations.  Kawhi can not carry this team alone on his back, he needs other players to step up and deliver!

Hope we play better this evening against the Pacers.  End of rant :-(

  1. Hope the dog is OK. My male went to the vets today to get his stitches out. I think he is feeling much better now.

  2. I would really wonder who took his collar off and why, and why did he seem so upset. You mentioned the collar had a registration on it - maybe someone stole the collar so they could use the registration. I think if you have a record of the number, you should report it as stolen. If it's found on a dog and is traceable to you, you might be liable for something. If you report it stolen then there is a record of that. Good luck. When you are kind to animals and people all kinds of problems arise, don't they.

    1. Pedrito is not the type that will let you come up to him if you are a stranger. He can be intimidating if you do not know him that is why the missing collar and tag is so strange.

      I would like to think that he managed to take it off with his constant scratching but you are right I need to report it as soon as we get back.

  6. "OUR" SPURS on KENS-5 TV Friday night so I get to watch. No national TV guarantees a win.

    1. I sure hope so Sb, but one never knows. Last night I watched the Clippers play a great game against the Warriors. As a matter of fact the Clippers led a good part of the game. Austin Rivers had it going!

      There were technical fouls, shoving, shouting, cussing and they are going to be very motivated after losing to the GSW.
