2019 November 16 Saturday in Liberty Hill, Texas
THERE were no real clouds in the sky, just a general haze* and some pinkish contrails from highflying jets crossing the burnt orange sky.
32° at 7AM feels like 28° going for a high of 61° under a hazy sky.
MY dressing room is behind a security gate at Lakeline Mall. It is locked and I have not been given a key. It takes a little time to make the change from mild mannered blogger to the supper hero known as Santa a.k.a. Father Christmas, Pere Noel, Papa Noel, Viejo Padcuero, Kerstman, Loulupukki, Weihnachtsmann, Kanakaloka,Mikulas, Babbo Natale, Hotelosho, Juleenissen, Swiety Mikola, Fed Moroz, and Jultomten. Yes, I have a lot of alias. . And I did arrive with enough time to make the transformation.
WHEN I left work. I headed straight to the pharmacy for Ella’s medication. Okay it wasn’t exactly “straight” to the pharmacy. Nothing in the Texas hill country follows a straight path. I reckon that if you took a hill country native and set them on interstate 80 heading west out of Nebraska, they would run off the road in less than a mile, because they wouldn’t know how to drive a straight line that long. Grin.
MY shopping cart didn’t look like it contained $100.00 + but it did. And I didn’t get the milk that I was sure was on the list yesterday, but not today.
THE sky looked like a blue-gray bed sheet with a little flashlight shining through, after four this afternoon. The smoky haze is still in the air.
God bless and g’nite.*Saturday 11/16/2019
Very light amounts of smoke from possible seasonal fire activity across the Southeast U.S. could continue filtering into portions of Texas,
