Lifestyle Headache

My Bro wins the fight with a West TX buzztail.  Exemplary trigger protocol on an old school S&W 5906.

Well in to the summer down here in the puckerbrush even though the calendar says we are a coupla weeks shy;  several days already  over 100 with oppressive humidity.  That equals energy in the atmosphere and that means severe thunderstorms.  Had one blow through here a week or so ago from the northwest with 80mph wind, quarter size hail and an inch of rain in 15 minutes.

Had a guy email me this past week that wanted to do a phone interview with me about living and working in a recreational vehicle.  Well, me, Miss K and Tuco the Dog are certainly qualified to comment on that particular endeavor.  Human ego jumps all over something such as this because we all want our 15 minutes of fame, right?  Maybe so unless you are a curmudgeon.
