Winds In..Lights out!






We had a wind storm Sunday afternoon. Trees were blowing around like crazy and of course they fell on power lines. We had winds up to 70m.per hour until midnight..morning came and what a mess! They closed our road because of downed power lines. We did the sensible thing of course, drove over them to go to work. The big tree limbs are at the house were Amy and I were peeping toms (that's another story), then I went and checked out the Creepy Woods to see how many trees were down. Not too bad, just a few big limbs. Dinner was cooked on the grill...bacon, eggs, and pancakes to use up what I could in the fridge. Our freezer was pretty empty of meat, and tomorrow we will throw everything out that's left in there. I stayed home today and emptied the fridge and cleaned it up along with other things that needed done. For just a few days Jack said we lived in a gated community! I learned some things about myself during this pioneer time. 1. I'm no pioneer 2. I miss my vaccum more than the tv 3. I miss the computer more than the vaccum 4. I love Thomas Edison and his lovely electric light bulbs 5. I can flush a toilet with pool water 6. I can take a very cool gallon jug shower and come out clean 7. I don't really need to dry my hair 8. I can apply makeup by candlelight. 9. I look better in candlelight 10. Hot wax from candles hurts! Well, time for a real shower with hot water and I just might sleep with the lights on tonight..wait, I look better by candlelight and I look absolutely gorgeous with the lights off. CLICK

YOU are funny too! It must run in your family! It finally cooled off here and I'm hoping it's here for good. It's wonderful to leave the house and not hurt because of extreme heat!

You're so resourceful, pioneer woman!!! But then I've known that from the time you gave the patient a towel for modesty.....(sorry!)...

I am so proud of you "YaYa". And to think I knew you when you didn't even know how to boil water. I am impressed with your survival skills.....And you look great in any light....because it comes from the inside of you anyway...(Man this nice stuff is really hard..only kidding..)Love ya
