thanks, rain, football,debt

thanks for all the response to my recent blogs on my story-final
thanks for those who have made donations to the walk to end alz
and have made commitments to their local walks to end alz

we certainly need more of it here
its so dry and now its so hot-due to get to 105 here today
there is no rain in the forecast only continued heat
have noticed some browning of the leaves on some of the
trees on my property and in the area
have also had some loss of shrubs from the drought

our hope for rain this time of the year is usually for a
hurricane to hit the gulf and drive moisture up this way
so in texas lots of people are hoping for that hurricane
to form in the caribbean and head this way

we just want one that will move slowly across and hit
the texas gulf coast gently in an area where there is no
people living there and then send waves of rain over
us here in central texas

ok im ready for some football
glad that holdout is over with now
hopefully the players ok the agreement today
am going through football withdrawals already

cant wait until sunday afternoons arrive when we can
watch football and nap-those go together

they still havent fixed the debt ceiling yet
they sure are mucking around with our financial system
have developed a new disrespect for the way our political
systems work or dont work
hope they get it all together this week and get it done
we need to decrease our spending and increase our revenues
just like you and i do every day

they have a week to get it done

  1. Watching politicians wrangle over the debt is like watching wrestling.

    A lot of trash talk, a lot of fake struggles and after the show is over, the crowd is still out it's money and the wrestlers all go home together in the same bus.

    certainly agree with you on that
