They are predicting a 30 percent chance of afternoon thunderstorms for today. I will believe it when I see it. We have had one rain so far this whole year and it was less than half an inch. There have been storms go past us with in a few miles, but no rain got to my place. So cross your fingers and let us hope that we do get some of that 30 percent.
Because of something a reader said, I was looking back through some of my old blog postings and have decided that my old blogs were much better than what I am doing now. I guess I have either run out of steam or of ideas. Or maybe I am running out of hours in the day. I spent a lot of time back then searching through old pictures and scanning any I thought would be interesting and also looking through all the picture files stored on my computer. Guess I am running out of pictures and the pictures gave me the ideas.
When looking for a specific older blog, I came across one with a picture of my Dad and my Uncle (before I was born) with their pets, one pet being a ground hog. From what my Mother told me, the ground hog (or whistle pig or wood chuck) made a great pet. I know that a lot of people, especially here in Texas, didn’t know what I was talking about. When a friend and I were out walking this property that I was planning to buy (and did), I saw a big hole in the ground and said that it must be a ground hog hole. He said he never heard of a ground hog but that was an armadillo hole. Aha!! I am now in a different country, and boy, was I to learn just how different and in many ways. I am now probably more a Texan than the native born. I have lived here a lot longer than most have been alive. I have spent almost half my life here, and hope to be able to spend three quarters or even seven eights of my life here before I die (grin).
By the way, if you want to review that old blog, here is a link:
You all have a fine day, you hear?
