“A person cannot endure inexplicable worthlessness.” – “The Quick Red Fox” – by John D. MacDonald
As usual, up at 340 AM to assume command. Coffee – Juice – Muffin. Ready for the day.
Rig up.…..way back there.
7:30 am – Regular weekly conversation with daughter Ann. All’s well with her even though she lives in the TORNADO capitol of the world – Oklahoma.
You can’t choose your neighbors. These people are animals. Do take care of their lawn though.
A big chunk of the day on the phone with various associates, family and odd fellows.
1:05 pm – The rains came. Big, black, dense clouds of thundering power. Lost satellite signal for 20 minutes as the storm blew through. Major crisis.
1:30 pm – Gaby, armed with her smart phone, credit cards, and copper gloves heads for Cuero. A force of nature.
Around 3 pm Gaby returns. With a haggard look she recaps the challenges met and conquered.
The fresh vegetable/fruit gauntlet met its match.
A dreary, cloudy, damp day ends with a bowl of chili.
Gaby assumes the watch and the fate of Dewitt County is now her responsibility.
