URGENT – WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX 358 AM CDT Sat Aug 29 2020

You know that it is going to be a rough day when the heat advisory starts at three fifty eight in the morning before the sun even rises!


Welcome, family and friends, to Our Daily Journal, a remembrance for us and a point of connection for you.

  • High around 103° with heat index of 110° and Ella says we need to straighten out the short, metal shed in our yard. Sure. Why not go ahead and climb into the oven?
  • As it turned out, we did NOT do anything about the shed today. The time spent at Jenny’s (see below) took longer than expected.

Another indicator of a rough day would be that I didn’t go to sleep until 1:56.

  • Homemade blueberry muffins with breakfast. There, I’ve used the last of the blueberries! I have a fear of letting fresh produce be forgotten and go bad in the refrigerator.
  • Fairly soon after breakfast, we went into Jenny’s. She had printed a form for me, so that I can apply for a Texas license plate for the truck. I filled out the form and had her double check it. The first available appointment date was for November 2nd. We took it. However we will go for a drive and make an in person visit, on the chance of getting in earlier.
  • We can’t apply for Texas drivers licenses until the truck has Texas plates.
  • While we were there. Ella attended a funeral online. Her live-in babysitter, that was kind of life an older sister, had passed away up in Iowa. Because of the pandemic, many more t-hings are setting up virtual attendance.
  • Ella wrote: Family members do not always join the family by birth. Betty became a member of ours when we three sisters were little and school buses didn’t go to all rural homes. Betty lived with us, attended school and helped our mother.

  • When Betty started her family my mother got to experience her first “grandkids”. We lost, heaven gained Betty this week. I request prayers for her family and ours.”

Thanks again for stopping by. Share this with your friends. See y’all again tomorrow. Stay safe. Remember, we love you.

  • God bless and g’day.
