The security monitor shows an empty driveway. Every time I glance at it, it gets my attention because I am so used to seeing my RV sitting out there and now it is missing. Well, not missing (I hope), just in for a new awning and a fix to the power driver’s side window. Funny how we get so used to seeing the same thing and then when the views are different it catches our attention immediately. We humans and most animal life are like that. It is a reflex that can save your life. Not only do we notice when something that is always there is missing, we also notice when something new appears in our surroundings. This is especially useful to hunters and those who are hunted. Wildlife survives by knowing their surrounding and noticing anything different. They need to know if that form was there yesterday or is it something that poses danger. If danger, they have to know if their escape route has been blocked by a freshly fallen tree. You get the idea. That is why I notice any change in the pictures shown on my security monitor.
I got to get moving; this is dog grooming day and we have to get ready to take them there. The boy rides in the back in his cage and the girls ride in the front, one on my lap and one on my wife’s lap. They love to ride but not to the vets or the groomers. They prefer to go in the RV and when we left yesterday without them it was not a happy scene. They heard it when I fired it up and they got all excited and ready to go, but. . . No, they had to stay at home. Got the RV to the fix-it (we hope) shop. It will probably live there for a few days. Maybe, maybe not. Anyway, you all have a great day and enjoy a new summer. It will be in the triple digits here in a few days and in the upper 90’s for the days leading up to it. Wouldn’t be so bad but living this near the Gulf the humidity is has so high you can ring water out of the air. Have a great day now, you hear?
