Monday - More Mix of Stuff including San Saba Visit


We took our walk in the morning (and almost died...sorta)

Whew! 104 - dang hot

Went outside Saturday at  5 pm and encountered this fella on the wall. I was the intruder. He was quite happy hanging out. 

This is Texas Hill Country in August. Cactus, dry, heat, and tough terrain.  Not for the feint of heart. Who settled this land? Who chose this God forsaken place?

Folks who don't want to jack with society...

Just raise cattle, hunt deer, and 

"Leave us alone"

I'm truly a visitor in a foreign land here. Not keen on snakes, heat, and cows. 

It's funny and I can laugh at myself - such a city slicker. Ray's in his element. Aunt Pat is a pioneer woman. 

Damn good cook - we ate well! Believe me. 

Awesome visit and weekend.  Got home Sunday around 1:30.  Threw laundry in, went grocery shopping, and I was in my pool (my element) by 3:30.    All good and I have a vacation day tomorrow - just cuz.... Cheers all as we finish August with a hot gasp.....


  1. You're right, it just looks hot. I'd be in that pool as well.

    1. "cool spell" is coming soon. Just have to make it through this week

  2. Some heat Joanne, pleased there was a pool.
    Have a good new week and a new month tomorrow.
    Take care.

    1. Not a pool until I got home. Whew! Happy Sept now to you

  3. Folks who don't want to jack with society - sounds great to me right now :)

    Glad you had a good visit and a pool at the end of it! Here's to September, may it get better for all of us.

  4. Wow! Love the photos, but not sure I'd want to be in that heat myself. I bet your pool was a relief!

    1. You would totally pass out in TX right now. It's hot when Ray says it - he's hardy.

  5. Hi Joanne - sounds like a lovely trip ... and how funny - Ray being in his element in the bush, and you enjoying your city ways and comfortable living - mind you Ray does quite well helping you be comfortable. Sounds wonderful all round ... take care - Hilary

    1. we are quite a mismatched pair but it work.
      And storms have blown in and we are cooling off rapidly

  6. You're a trooper, and thank goodness you made it home to that pool.

    Stay shaded, by A/C, in your pool, eating ice cream and/or frozen yogurt - all the good stuff.
    Happy Anniversary month to you and Ray.

    1. Thanks and it's raining now - cooler days ahead. I'll eat ice cream no matter the conditions.
      All good. Hope you are well as you start September silliness
