We Interrupt This Program…

…To bring you your regularly scheduled afternoon, mini-hurricane.  Satellite TV is out of course.  Computers turned off to prevent lightning damage.

Maggie, my little sweet girl dog is home from her stay at the vets.  Her “brother” Max was glad to see her.  The suspense (anxiety) continues till July 23rd.  That’s when she’s scheduled for examination by a specialist.

She has problems with her esophagus and swallowing.  There are several possible causes.  Most of them unsettling.  Only a proper endoscopy will tell the tale.  She’s tolerating soft food and drinking water.  Her activities are limited in the interim.

Jury Duty, Day #1

Everything was out of synch.  Didn’t sleep well, for fear of being late.  Severe storms were predicted for the next day.

These were the same storms that wreaked havoc in Texas, Louisiana, and throughout the Southeast.  I arrived at the courthouse in plenty of time, in the midst of a driving rainstorm.

There lots of other potential jurists congregated, with umbrellas, wet clothing–like myself.  I was surprised, and at the same time gratified, that court proceedings had been cancelled for the day.

Back home safely, to return tomorrow, for another day.  Weather is supposed to be better tomorrow.

Umbrella Days

“Since rain seems to be topic of the day around here–a beautiful image, and thoughts from last summer.”


A squash blossom

Resembled an umbrella

The color of bright sunshine

Crafted from finest silk

To repel drops of rain

From sudden summer showers

On pleasant walks in the park
