  1. Good evening Jo.
    Good morning everyone else.
    I know it’s a picture of something, but I don’t know what.
    Cool, rainy morning in Greensboro.
    That’s good. we need it.
    It’s just me, all alone this morning.
    I think a lady is supposed to be by later. Mostly to check on me, iI think. There isn’t really much she can do.

  2. Good morning. FYI- I made sure the creature in the picture was a lizard and not a skink. He, too, posed for me and I thanked him.

    I felt a little like Dr. Doolittle when talking to the critters. “Please don’t run off. Let me get a picture, Mr. Lizard. Thank you for posing.”

    Yeah, that mountain air does tricks on the brain when you’re used to the lowlands.

    Speaking of tricking the brain, here are the weekly political comics.

  3. Linda,

    No I didn’t. The last thing I got in that email from you was on 3/31, the shot of the Susquehanna.

    Try again please. 🙂

  4. That’s a fine looking lizard.

    Too big for the cat.

    Friday, finally. I thought Wednesday was Friday. Then I thought Thursday was Friday. Now it’s hard to believe Friday is really Friday.

    Strange week.

    It’ll get up to 75 degrees today (and again tomorrow), then back down into the lower 70s through the holiday weekend.

  5. It is seventy five here now, supposed to get to ninety one today, ninety four tomorrow, a couple of low nineties, then back up again for round two.

  6. This piece reminds me of something I have been thinking about various sources that are shared on social media. First Corinthians 15:33 says (in the NKJV), “Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” (But I had remembered it as in the NIV, which I used to read years ago: “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”)

    Many writers, on both left and right, write in a snarky, sarcastic, and nasty tone. If that writer is on “our side”, it is easy to not see that, or to let it pass because we like the general point the writer gets at. But I have seen how a steady diet of those kinds of writers and columnists can adversely affect the expressed attitudes of some Christians on social media. But they feel justified in sharing those pieces or even writing in the same tone, because “the other side really is that bad.” 😦

  7. I was sitting on the porch earlier and saw when the dogs next door were let out. I sat very still hoping to not be noticed because two are rather large, and I was thinking about Michelle.

  8. Another verse that comes to mind at times in reading some comments and posts on social media is Matthew 5:22b (NKJV):

    “. . .And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”

  9. We’re at 95F already up here. I think I’m just going to stay mostly in the house today with fans blowing on me. I may end up taking refuge in the basement at some point. Much cooler down there.

  10. The lizard is in the center of the photo, right in the middle, on the rock.

    One port story done — an update on construction for one of our big waterfront projects — with another port story — the completion of a 10-year terminal revamp — to come. Then I’ll be done for the day and can get to the vet with Cowboy. Again.

    Our Hemp Oil for dogs comes today, former colleague now in TN says it’s really benefited her cat who has a cancerous tumor in her nose.

  11. It is the American way, lately, be angry about everything. Throw a temper tantrum. Act like an incredibly destructive two year old. All those free soccer trophies are being paid for now.

  12. Winchester was supposed to get to 86 about today, but it says 97. That may not be accurate as they are also getting their info from the Lewiston airport.

  14. Janice – Something I forgot to comment on yesterday: Boy’s favorite cereal is the same as Wesley’s. 🙂 (Although usually Nightingale buys the Aldi version, which I think is just as good. Boy doesn’t seem to care which version she gets.)

  15. Mumsee- I don’t know what kind of lizard it is.

    DJ – That lizard was only about 6 inches long. I think your cat could handle it.
