2019 October 03 Thursday in Liberty Hill, TexasNo sunrise photo … and this is why.Ella stripped the bed and bagged up all of our dirty clothes, including those that spent the summer in the hamper.After breakfast, I loaded the clothes into the truck in preparation for going to the laundromat.I set off more bug bombs (2 this time) as we left home for the day.The post office was our first stop for the day. I did a six month renewal of the P.O.Box. At the same time, I picked up a change of address form to transfer from that P.O. box to our physical address.It was nice to see the gang at Over The Hill Gang today. Food was good, as it always is. After the meal, we stayed to play canasta with friends.Laundromat time came directly after our canasta game was over.After arriving home, I put the awning out. That included awning support rafters, deflappers, and making sure that the tiedowns were secure and tight.The evening breeze under the awning was preferable to sitting inside in the heat.Dead/dormant Texas grass that crunches underfoot. Iowa still has green grass, which is unusual for this time of year. I thought it was because Texas hadn’t had any rain this year and Iowa hadn’t had anything but rain. But I did a little fact checking and found that Grimes Iowa had only about 6″ more rain this year than Liberty Hill Texas. The real difference isn’t the quantity of rain. It is the timing. Liberty Hill had its 22+” all in the spring while Grimes had its 28″ spread out through spring and summer.About 8 p.m. an ambulance, firetruck, and several police vehicles went zooming up the narrow country road that boarders one edge of our park. I watched them with curiosity but it was sometime later that I thought to pray for them. My reaction should have been compassion before curiosity.God bless and g’nite
