Wondering about wild grapes

It Rained and I slept in.

It rained most of the afternoon and evening yesterday.  Not a heavy rain and it didn't storm, but rather a light drizzle that soaked in almost immediately.  That is exactly what we needed here.  A heavy rain storm would have just run off quickly and most of the rain would end up in the swamp/pond.  This way, it finally cut the dust and cooled things down a little.  It is only 69 out there as I write this.  The other good thing is that I got a good nights sleep and actually slept in this morning until my youngest dog decided she needed to go out.  The male always gets up just before it gets light and I let him out in the other part of the house and go back to bed.  I hope you all feel as good as I do this morning.  Hope it lasts (grin).

Don't you hate it now that lawyers have gotten involved in the medical profession?  When I was young, if you wanted something done and had the money, you got it done.  No fuss, no problem.  Way back then I even had my tonsils out in a doctor's office and went directly home.  The Doc just used straight ether to put me under by dripping it out of a bottle onto a wire mesh wrapped with gauze.  That was the worst part.  I remember seeing pinwheels and flashing spinning lights and a loud buzz in my head.  In my mind, I was about to scream, "I can't stand it anymore" and I popped awake.  It seemed to me that I was only out a few seconds.  Now you would have to have all sorts of tests to make sure you will survive the procedure.  My wife is going to have a simple out-patient procedure and she had to jump through hoops going to different places for different tests and get signed off by all involved.  Dang, I hate the newer system.  You can't just sign a statement saying you will not sue them.  OK, now that I got my blood pressure back up I better stop on this subject and head out to the flea market.  You all have a great day now, you hear, and hope you can avoid doctors.


  1. Great place to be on a Saturday morning,,,have a great time.

  2. Glad you got a nice soaking rain. My wife let me sleep in this morning. She walked the dog. Nice. Then my daughter had already started the coffee when I got up. Double nice.

  3. Trouble, We usually go every weekend, both days. Much more there on Sundays. I like to visit with the people.

    Sixbears, You are going to get spoiled for sure. Make the best of it, bet it don't happen every day.

  4. I like to wait to get up on Saturdays until I smell the coffee brewing. Then it's time.

  5. Jill, now that sounds like a plan to me. Trouble at my house, I like extra, extra strong Colombian and my wife weaker Folgers.
