Things that make me say....
"Thank you"

Mostly simple things....nothing big, but yet to Grandma J, miraculous just the same......



Like a strawberry Fruitista from Taco Bell when it's 102 degrees at eight o'clock in the evening. I sip things like this slowly.....savoring the luxury of this refreshment.

Some rain to quench the weeds the parched earth.....but be careful what you ask for. Praying for lots of rain can be taken much too literally. Just saying.







Of course, any body of water, big or small, brings out the neighbor kids.






And of course Phillip Johnny Bob is a follower, not a leader! Just giving the neighbors one more thing to talk about.

Well, I glad you received rain, but tell the Man Upstairs he needs to send rain every third day or so!!!

Tell PJB to watch out! There may be an injured crab lurking in those waters....crabs are even feistier when they've been swinging from the jaws of a ferocious dog like J.J.

PJB left his swimming trunks here...is he going commando?

Woopsie! Sorry about that. Megawatt and I did a little rain dance to send some your way (we're drowning in the stuff up here) but perhaps we should have specified just HOW MUCH rain to send your way.

Should we send some canoes?

It is always good to enjoy the little things in life...glad you got your much needed rain. I hope it lasts, and perhaps 'spreads' out better so you have NO floods. Where are PJB's floaties???

mom x 2 said...

Yea for the rain.... boo for the flooding... At least PBJ is making the best of it!

Country Girl said...

The Incredible Woody said...

SOOOO glad you guys finally got some rain!!

And now that the rain has passed and the temps are going back up, how's the humidity?!?

Jason, as himself said...

But there's still a drought, right?

I have never tried a Fruitista. You make me want one!

Did CBW just out PJB?! LOL

The simple things I am thankful for this morning are an ice cold coke (because I forgot to bring my coffee to work) and the subway running on time.

Is that Killeen? My wife said it rained yesterday. We got less than an inch of rain in San Antonio.

Grandma J said...

Blue, it's Killeen...right off the 190 access road eastbound between WS Young and Stan S.

It's all gone now. Sorry S A didn't get any.

gotta get together with your wife for din din one night. Ask her if she likes Mexican..En Fuego at the mall is new and good!
