There will soon be PETA women doing nude protests at your gate.  When they do, send pictures.

I already have several outraged Vegan friends... don't think naked pictures of them would do much for you though :)

My sons both showed up at my ranch for a visit this weekend... drove non-stop from Indiana to bring me a truck in exchange for my Escape (which I can no longer afford). While here they bought me a great 4 wheel dump cart for moving stuff around easier and also a new wheel barrow with a tire that wouldn't bog down in the sand! My older son brought me a new Motorola smartphone to get better reception than the basic cell phone they had given me earlier. We went out and bought a bunch of small things (like a solar powered floodlight to keep me from falling down my front steps in the dark again) plus a bunch of other stuff.

What great sons! As I get older all my kids just really try and help me out in many ways. Live is good and I am a very lucky mom!

Now if we just get the thunderstorm that seems to be hanging on the horizon....

The monsoon season started a week ago and haven't had a drop of rain yet hit me.

We had light rain off and on all morning. Forecast is for thunderstorms all week. That means maybe.

I admire you Rhonda. It is a special type of person who is able to take responsibility for themselves and make such a change. And what a change you have made. Good luck to you in all your endeavours.

regards,

John

The weather changed here on Sunday, today is worse. Humidity is up considerably. A little early in the year for this kind of weather.

Yesterday we had thunderstorms two miles two our east and five miles to our north, clouds and thunder all around, beautiful thunderheads and lightning flashes, but not a drop at the house.  Today I was at a workshop about seven miles west of the house in a straight line and we had two thunderstorms there, about an hour of rain all together.  Driving home there was water in the streets until I got to within three miles from the house.  Yet not a drop fell at the house.  However, in both cases, the thunderstorms knocked the temperature down to the 80s with a breeze after about a week of highs in the 98-102 range.  Typical Louisiana summer weather.

Bah, Saturday was over 120. I passed a sign that said 127 but I think that was off. We did see 121 at our house. Of course I had to go out at 4pm, the hottest part of the day.

Yesterday was 108 at 5pm and thunderclouds all around.

That was today. J2D. Last week was in your temperature range.

We need to get together and swap stories. I can see that already, kind of like the Jaws movie, my scar is bigger.

You and I both live in the desert, and it's monsoon season, a beautiful thing, and not for wimps.

So here is one for you: When I was 14 I drove a TD18 International across a 160 acre field subsoiling 12 hour shifts. It took over an hour to cross the field at the longest diagonal. This was no ac, my friend, and I had to keep wood floor boards on the steel plates, because the heat was so intense my toe nails came off that summer. The engine would blow straight back at ya, and you had to keep wrapped up due to the bugs crawling all over you all day. I grew up down here farming until I was 40 years old, and then took a cushy job teaching special ed. lol

Your turn, I have got a million of them. <G>

You win. My worst doesn't beat that. I did talk to a lady today in Needles that said it was 131 at her house Saturday so that 127 was probably correct.

Hey rhonda, at 6:30 a little green on the radar between Holbrook and Snowflake.

I guess all hell broke loose last night around midnight but I slept through it.

Yea, it thundered around me and the cool breeze was nice, but no moisture of significance again <sigh>.

I guess Phoenix got hit by a record breaking dust storm though. Harsh times in the Southwest.

Making progress on unpacking... got most old games onto shelves last night and today I got my printer working on the network.

Tried to keep the dogs in the house this morning when I let the horses out to pasture, but Granger (the big retriever mix) crashed through the dining room screen and then cleared the fence in a single bound. Too late to catch the horses though, but now I have a screen to replace! It's never dull around here, even in my isolation.

Wellllll.... maybe not that many, but I did talk to a lady this morning about buying some milk goats as soon as I figure out a safe place for them (she thinks the dogs will eat them). The same goes for some laying hens... gotta build a solid chicken coop for them.

Found a Red Tailed Hawk drowned in the horse's water tank up in the pasture yesterday morning. One big fierce looking bird... guess he thought he could get a drink and fell in and drowned I guess. I was going to bury him but when I mentioned it on Facebook my Navajo friends immediately called me and asked for the dead bird so they can use the feathers for ceremonies. I sacked him up and dropped him off at their house this morning.

We finally got rain this afternoon.... not too dramatic but it got the ground soaked nicely. The horses were throwing mud everywhere as they galloped down to the stable this evening! The dogs have been exiled to the outdoors till they all dry off and shed some of their mud. Radar shows another line moving in so we might get some more. We're up to 50% chance for tomorrow... that's the highest yet.

Tomorrow I'm going to try and post some pictures... I finally found my SD Card adapter so I can get pix off my camera (lost the cable years ago).

It helps to have the dogs, I'm not sure how well I'd be out here alone without them for constant company (and occasional annoyance!).

Started my goat herd last Saturday night with the acquisition of a 5 week old buckling (named Ranger) and a 7 week old doe (named Arwen). I'm planning a LOTR theme for my herd.

Rhonda, this is meant in the spirit of "sometimes laws make little sense!" rather than "naughty naughty!"

You probably broke several federal laws by picking up and transporting that dead red-tailed hawk.  There are laws on the books that prohibit possession of even the feathers of a raptor.

Years ago, I found a dead red-shouldered hawk on the highway.  I stopped and put it in the bed of my pickup, planning to take it to the Department of Natural Resources office just down the road.  Then I remembered how some state officers get a little worked up about things, so, even though I know most of the officers there, I stopped again and discarded the hawk into a thicket.

You did the right thing, no doubt; just don't tell any Federal Fish & Wildlife Service people.
