Added Insult To The Misery
As if it isn't hot enough and dry enough someone had to drive into a telephone pole down by the post office and knocked out our electricity for seven hours. Do you know what it's like without air in south Texas in summer? Yes we still have summer and no rain. However a big wind storm blew up last night and tore our back storm door off. John has a habit of not closing it good. His house is flat on the ground so now any varmit or bug can gome in if he leaves the big door open. We have had two oilfield explosions in one week last week. Guess accidents go with an oil boom but sad two men were burned in one of them and a lot of big trucks were destroyed in the other. No Jack I wasn't on the cruise but I did spend a lot of time on my new mat but I'm feeling better now. There is just not much to write about without repeating how hot and dry it is here. The cows are holding their own with John going out often with feed and keeping the water going. I'm sad we are not seeing the cottontail rabbits and quail. I had hoped they were being replentished but somthing else must have needed lunch.
