What We've Been Up To


But not Kylie.

My father-in-law.  He had a mild stroke last summer and lost his short-term memory.  Otherwise, he's fit as a fiddle for 86 years old.

But, my mother-in-law has a UTI and is in the hospital.  She normally takes care of him.  Now, it's our turn.  She's also gotten very weak in the last few weeks so will have to go to rehab for a couple weeks when she gets out of the hospital.

On top of that, Gary's motorcycle broke down for the third time yesterday.  We went to get it yesterday and he got halfway home when the same thing happened.

We had to wait an hour and a half in a Walmart parking lot for the tow truck.

Yeah, it's been fun!

Here are a few pictures I took yesterday and today.  They have no real significance; I just felt like clicking.
I was sitting in the back seat on the way to pick the bike up and thought this was really cool.

Saw these four birds while waiting in traffic.

Raindrops on red chairs

Jeweled grass

Anyone know what this is?  I know lots of flowers but not this one.

Pretty weeds

I believe that purple flower is called Prairie Blazingstar. It grows by the side of the road here, well, when it is not dry as a bone as it is now. Nothing grows here now except our displeasure with the heat. :)

Love the shot of the car in the glasses in the car-cool! I wish I could drink the rain off that red chair! We are parched down here.
