- The first 'named' Tropical Storm is in the Gulf of Mexico today, stirring up some winds and heavy rains I'm sure! And it's headed to the western coast of Florida...track shows it will remain a storm all along the eastern coast of USA and then farther northward is its path. By the looks of this map I read early this morning---it's gonna be around for some time!! Those of you along the predicted trail, batten down the hatches!! [by the way, her name is Andrea. That was gonna be Erik's name if born a girl. He says: "That's why I was a man child, Andrea is so sissified!" LOL]

- After completing the book by Dan Brown, INFERNO, and so enjoying the suspense of it all; it finally came to a conclusive and concise epilogue, and I was at a loss. Here all the time turning the pages quickly to get to know what happens next and wanting the ending to come up quicker and quicker, just to know what happens at the end, I was sad to have it all come to a closure! What do I read next? I don't know 'bout you, but when a rare, good, book is finished, the next one you pick to read seems mundane. At least for a while. Especially, while you're still in the previous book's mode. And I've heard about Dante's Divine Comedy [which is a theme of Brown's INFERNO] ---I quickly picked up the first of the trilogy written by A. Dante...Dante's Inferno. And, by golly, I'm comprehending it all so far. It's a book of poetry with 'cantos' ---chapters of sorts within a huge, long, poem. The English Translation isn't bad at all. Not at all what I expected. And so far, that, too, is pretty good.
- A little over a week ago, I received a package from a wonderful online friend from Denmark. She always spoils me with such treasured gifts. This time it was no exception. She had emailed me that when she saw this, she thought of me right away. It's so darling. I have it placed on my nightstand for a reminder of our long lasting friendship over the years....
- Late yesterday afternoon I hopped in the car to drive to the park and check on the hummer, to see if any of her small brood had hatched. She was there on the nest when I arrived, and in order to not disturb her any, I just quickly snapped the photo [hence the silhouette -because of the time of day, and I didn't want to be walking around any to get her true colors]. This ritual is for a 'record' of sorts to see how long it takes from nest building; incubation time and hatching. I know it is not going to be anywhere NEAR accurate, but still 'fun'. I left as quickly as I got there. I'll check back again soon if I can...
- At the beach, just a reminder, having 4 wheel drive on your vehicle doesn't mean you can go anywhere in it without getting stuck!!!---
