it's not too hot out, slight breeze blowing.  Since I must go to the dentist tomorrow at 10:30, then do some errands for dad while I'm in town, the day will be shot.  Calling for storms, Thursday and Friday.  We need the rain, for sure.  I broke down and turned on the A/C, for the dogs, of course.  Last month, the electric bill was $40 higher, but, it was worth it.

Went to supper last night with Artie, Ross, his grandson, Michael, and, Lois.  They were all at the restaurant on Sunday night, but didn't call me, used to, whatever.  So, I went up to pay my bill and saw a lady that was a good friend of Joyce, my best friend that passed away in 2007.  I sat down and talked with her, she will be 87 in December.  Sweet woman.  I enjoy older people.  We had a great conversation for about 45 minutes, and, after saying good bye to her, I paid my bill and went back to the table and everyone had left.  Oh, well.


UPDATE:  Got the yard mowed, put the mower in the barn, fixed lunch....thunder, lightening, whoa.  Quick, put windows up on vehicles, get in flag, get in house, get shower.  Then, it was over, just a quick as it came.  Damn, coulda kept it up all day.  Went to dad's and helped him put a gasket on the Farmall H.  The brother from next door came over to borrow a rake and shovel.  He had to burn the mattress, box spring and bed linen from his brother's bed, and, he needed to clean up the ashes and metal.  Seems the guy was dead for 10-12 hours before he was found, so, it was quite a mess.  The other neighbors were telling dad this morning and kinda chuckling about him burning everything, but, I guess they are too stupid to realize what a body will do when it dies.  He had no choice.  Trash truck certainly wouldn't have taken it.  After the autopsy is done, he's not even going to claim the body.  There is no money for burial, and this way the state will cremate him and dispose of the ashes.  So sad.

Later, again.

A Farmall H. Nice.

I've told my family to just burn me and scatter me near the nearest steam engine festival.

Sounds like a good plan.
