    Fun day at the beach yesterday I betrayed Caturday and played with the doggies at the dog park that had its own dog swim area on the lake πŸ™‚ !

    Poor lady told her dog “This is the last time” an uncountable amount of times.

    Have a beautiful Sunday folks πŸ™‚ !

    10 o:clock advisory is in. many more to follow, and Hurricane One is on the way. New track – many more to follow – puts it close to NOLA but bends it enough to where we don’t get much but rain and they’re unsure about how much of that.

    Hey Wee, they movin’ the Buffs? If not watch for it. The Laura beast is supposed to come in around the Sabine and twist northish, bringing you bundles of rain-joy right soon. It’s now guesstimated to be a Cat 2 when it hits shore so we might get some blowby rain but y’all might be gettin’ real wet. Then again we still have days for them to be wrong.

      Yeah, I figure they’re giving it today and maybe tomorrow to tighten up before they start heading out. Don’t know whereall they go for these events but I figure both Dyess and Whiteman, amongst others more inland.
      If my neighbor’s trash oak falls on my house in the middle of that shite I’ma be annoyed….

  6. Afternoon all !
    Day late & a dollar short as usual. This is what I had to match up with the veggie/fruit theme and Lucille’s lovely purple flowers yesterday πŸ˜‰ It is by Alfred Arthur Brunel De Neuville (1851 – 1941)

    I was thinking of doing travel posters for different states like I did before with state flowers. My old computer died and took my entire library of art and everything else with it, so going from memory I think we had Alaska, Calif, Oregon, Idaho, Michigan, Louisiana, Florida, NH, and I forget the rest – sorry. If any other states are requested just let me know.

    Been having health problems the past few weeks & was in hospital for tests last week. Going to specialist for another test this week. That’s why my posts have been spotty. I commented a couple times next door, but this is my “happy post place” with all you wonderful people, and had just been a little too sick to smile :-), but I plan on being back now!

    Have a great day everyone! Stay safe all those in those storm tracks!

      Good afternoon, G&C! Thanks for the lovely painting. The green glass jar fills that particular space beautifully, and the purple plums are such a perfect color with their white dusty ripe look.

      Prayers for a day of God’s healing hand upon you!

      • Thank you for your prayers, they are much appreciated πŸ™‚

        I tend to like the cool side of the color wheel, and it’s sometimes hard to find a good painting with purple. I agree about the the green glass. Also the shine of the glass and brass contrasts nicely with the softness of the vegetation. Brunel De Neuville did a variety of nice still life’s. This is a good example of Bill Alexander’s quote: In order to have light, you must have dark”

        I hope you are safe. I apologize I forgot your state/locale, but it sounds like you are also in the path of those storms as well as the Czars, so I hope you all are safe!

          Generally, people around here don’t even breathe hard over a Category 1 or 2 hurricane, except for tornadoes, and rising water if they are in a low area. Our Mississippi house is concrete with a steel roof, and no trees can fall on it cause we cut the close ones before we built. As for the rental house in New Orleans the looters, big tree in the backyard, or random electrical fire might damage or destroy it but we have insurance, and we don’t live there.

          • Smart planning on your part! I always wanted a concrete house with a stone face, they seem so sturdy and practical rather than wood. I love the look of stone houses. Does the hard rain make a lot of noise on the steel roof, or are they insulated? We’re seeing a lot more steel roofs up here. The hard rain on a skylite can be so loud it wakes you up in the middle of the night. Gee, if the New Orleans house has enough value to sell would you? It sounds like a lot of worry for you to carry. My dad always said ‘lake front is pretty, but hilltop is dry’. I hope you all stay dry πŸ˜‰

            In the house we have now they only cut just enough trees to build the house and after 35 years all the trees grew large and angled in towards the opening for the house. We spent many thousands of $ having hundreds of 50-80 foot trees cut so they would not fall on the house. Two weeks later we had a storm with high winds and were so glad we spent the money, but 2 trees fell across our driveway blocking us in! At least they were not on the house!
            Keep safe & dry!

              So far, only one tree has fallen across the driveway in 13 years. But with an 800 foot long driveway surrounded by very tall trees, it will happen again one day.

              Well I’m hoping that were another Big One to hit they’d do what they did to all of those folks in the Lower 9th (especially the ones who didn’t have insurance, title to the property they lived in and/or hadn’t payed property taxes in decades) an just SHOWER them with free money. In Katrina they got a ridiculous amount of free money and forgiveness programs thrown at them, it was a monster taxpayer supported giveaway.

              Now we’ve always faithfully paid out property taxes, paid for our flood and wind damage insurance and sucked up that large mandatory deductible, done did everything a responsible citizen must do. I’m sure that if our house gets smashed the city, state and Federal governments will rush to our aid just as they did those who ignored the laws.

              WHOOPS! Just slipped in the pooled sarcasm.

                No kidding. We were watching in rapt attention as the Coast Guard rescued people from McMansions with 15 rings on each finger, bangles, many necklaces, handbags….from homes that had obviously been looted. Talk about PC….

                  I gots all sortsa stories about looting during Katrina that the government (especially the State) and the media decided were way too disparaging of the o-fishul PC version of what went on.
