Where am I? Is this the same earth that brought me snow and below-freezing temperatures last winter? My brain is boiling from these triple-digit days, about 12 in a row now. Thanks much for bringing on the brown season here in north Texas.
I'd like to crawl into a hole and emerge sometime this fall or in time for summer vacation to a cooler place.
Strange things are happening....
We visited New Mexico where at least we had cooler nights but the fires burned turning the horizon into a smoky haze.
Pink sun. Is this Mars or maybe Venus?
Los Alamos was evacuated. When people returned to their homes, they were warned that displaced bears may be visiting looking for food. Oh, my. Be careful Goldilocks.
Ahs. So sweet of the two-legs to leave me some treats.
We are headed to the land of Jellystone in late August. Yellowstone, that is. No fires there this year but there is an oil spill in the Yellowstone River. Ew. So all the bears are now black bears?
Snort. I just can't help myself today.
Bear activity is on the rise as the poor creatures can't find enough food at higher elevations. A beetle is destroying pine trees limiting the pine nuts available to hungry grizzlies. Hubby says we are wearing bells while hiking so we lessen our chance of startling Mama and Cubs.
It's not surprising that many Americans are obese. Hubby and I were rolling our eyes at how many able-bodied people we see that push the button to have doors open automatically. What? So your arms don't work? They're not full. You don't have kids with you. You're not in a wheelchair or using a walker or cane. Sheesh. USE YOUR ARMS!
Ok. Ok. Maybe you're having a bad day. I think I'll head to the kitchen for a fattening snack.
What is it with Texas? Casey Anthony moving here. Seriously? Glenn Beck wants to hang his hat here, too? Wow. I'm not standing here with open arms, 'K? How about North Dakota or Kansas or maybe New Jersey? Yeah, that works. Adios.
That's enough ranting for today. Have a great weekend.
