Catching up with friends

I finally had a chance to catch up with my friends this weekend.  It had been a while since I had spoken to some of them and it was great to hear their take on what is going on in our nation as well as in my former home town...Houston, Texas.

They each have their own take and as expected are doing their stay-at-home sheltering differently.  Some like me are only going out to buy groceries or run only important errands while others are brave enough to go eat at restaurants or shopping to help the local economy.

I do wish they would send me some of their rain as it has been bone dry here though we must have had a little precipitation as my rain catchment barrels had about two inches of liquid gold...so you know it did not rain much.

The Saharan dust finally showed up on Saturday and Sunday giving me an excuse not to wash clothes as I use a clothesline to dry them.

Not much else going on as I took a break from yard work, the Internet, and cable news.

Today we had a low of 79 a high of 98 and a heat index of 102 degrees.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


Aunty Acid Saying of the Day

  1. We avoid going into crowds as much as possible and even around smaller groups we wear our Masks. The only time we visit without them is while Social Distancing with others that are limiting their outings like we are.
    Aunty Acid says it all.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. If we all could just stay home, wear masks, and keep our social distance perhaps this Covid-19 surge could once again be held to manageable levels.

      Indeed, Aunty Acid says it all!

  2. Today our red governor ordered bars and gyms closed again. But he still will not mandate wearing of masks and is leaving it up to the mayors of each town or city What crap.

    And yes Auntie Acid is right on

    1. If it will make you feel better our state is in the same boat. They can pause re-opening the economy but don't have the gumption to issue a mandatory mask mandate for their respective states...sad!

  3. How lovely you had the chance to catch up with old friends. I think the ones who are out and about are making a huge mistake. Houston has one of the highest rates of outbreak.
    Montana's numbers are climbing, too. Tourist season and stupidity. A 72 year old woman was hired several times when she did not social distance from a buffalo. Taking photos.
    It is good to take a break from tv and internet. It just gets crazier every day.

    1. My beloved Houston is in bad shape and not getting any better. Poor woman to have gotten gored by a buffalo!

      I needed a break from both cable TV and the Internet. The constant breaking news about this administration is so exhausting and reprehensible.

      Just to know that there is a possibility that Russia was paying a bounty to have our American soldiers killed and this administration did nothing about it should give Americans cause to question why and not just Democrats...this is unacceptable and Republicans should also rally behind this...yet you know they won't.
