I was reading an article in the paper about a Texas woman who was told by an airline that she had to buy two seats because she was too big to fit in a single seat. She said she was surprised and embarrassed by this situation and said something similar to "People are bigger in Texas".
Just because she is from Texas and she is big, she thinks everyone from Texas is big?
Um....no. This woman obviously needs to get out more. Yes, I see BIG PEOPLE here in Texas but I sure see a lot of BARBIE STICKS, too.
Ah, for the smell of freshly watered brown grass...
According to the calendar, it's still spring. It's supposed to rain in spring. Mother Nature is obviously confused. Yes, I truly believe she is going through the THE CHANGE.....in more ways than one.
I do have a rose bush that is still green and hasn't caught on that it's too hot to bloom:
She's a beauty and she knows it.
Also, since my real cat has not come back, I'm having to make do with this beast:
About all he's good for is pushing up daisies......er....I mean Blue Daze!
Yes, he's cracked. Although he has made it through winters before, I don't think he cared for this last one, with the 12-inch snow event in February.
I had my running legs handed back to me on a platter yesterday. I ran a half marathon on concrete trails in heat/high humidity. I can tell you that there is no flavor of humble pie that I like. The only saving grace was the scenery. We had some nice green stuff to look at, like trees and park grass that is over-watered daily. There were a few small lakes and a polo field (!!) but then there there was this sculpture at the finish line:
Over-sized wild mustangs. Cool. I wished I had been riding one instead of running that race straight out of the Hades.
