Beatin' the Heat - Part II

Andy’s note:  I wrote this Fourth of July morning but just couldn’t  get into a patriotic mindset.  On this day when we are supposed to celebrate our freedom from tyranny I am just not there.  Seems to me like we have lost more freedoms over the last 12 months than we have gained.  Vicksburg, MS did not celebrate the 4th for 80 years and I sorta feel like a Vicksburgian today.  The American Flag IS flying over the Princess Palace today but then again, it was there yesterday…………  and the day before and last month.

The Office. Helluva commute, huh?

Terlingua Reprise - The Heart of the Desert

Miss K woke me up in the pre-dawn hours getting out of bed. ‘Where are you going?’ ‘To put on some more clothes. It is COLD!’ She was right, no argument there at all. During the night the Old Girl had cooled to an uncomfortable level. Nothing for it but for me to get up and get some heat going. I had not expected it to get so cool overnight but then the Midland weatherman routinely got the forecast down here wrong. His prediction of lows in the 40’s had missed the mark and then some. Low humidity, a cloudless
