KA BUK BUK KA BUK BUK BUK KA BUK KA BUK BUK.......
We actually had a 24 hour period of NO RAIN...that would be the 3rd to 4th July, I mowed our yard on the 3rd then got up and mowed Mom's the next morning. Just when I thought we'd have more than 'a' day of no rain we had this incredible T-storm hit, right over head, no kidding, big bolts of lightening then KA-BOOM, hardly any wait time at all. I'm really not one to jump but....there was one...not only did it make me jump, but I also ducked...and came back in the house.
'They' say we'll be having a dry weekend but I've gotta tell you...the temps are getting high, the dewpoint is high, the ground is saturated, the grass is so full of moisture..I have a feeling we may be experiencing 'reverse mist', you know? Super Steamy.
This coming Monday morning we're hoping those 'must be made of sugar' inspectors will crawl under the house so the inspections can be complete. Get on with this event.
Precious little knitting has been going on...I was working on a 'pretty' project but then our friend, Ray,(he who dubbed Chris and I 'Crusty Old Bitches' 'COBs') had a birthday last Sunday, they were to come over for dinner last Saturday but Bobby was sick and we postponed it until tomorrow evening. I'm now on the second sock, (yes, Ray must receive birthday socks) knitting my way down the foot...I'm hoping to finish it tonight and I promise I'll have photo/s of the socks, possibly on his feet. Oh, (my brain is in 'scatter deluxe' mode) so yes, got side tracked by the birthday socks...but I have to tell you, he loves his handknit socks, he feels pretty much the same as Dana when it comes to handknit socks...I'll be very happy to get back to the 'pretty' knitting project...and no, I can't be blogging about it either....shhhhh.
Hey, check this out. This is what I call Fancy Pants.
It's a pot-filler. I've seen these in older, large (historical type) homes and they're making a come back, is that cool or what? (I took this photo the other day while inspections were going on so no, not my kettle or coffee maker)
Oh yeah......Monica tagged me...and of course, I'm not going to 'tag' anyone but it was kind of fun and different so I accepted the tag and if anyone out there wants to do this, please, go for it.
Here's what you do:
"Go into Wikipedia and find things that happened on your birthday. You're supposed to list three events, two births, and one holiday".
Of course, I don't mind very well, right?
The events I thought were interesting: (I know, more than 3)

1528 - Gustav I of Sweden crowned king of Sweden.
1915 - United States House of Representatives rejects proposal to give women the right to vote.
1969- Led Zeppelin releases their first album
2007 - Comet McNaught reached perihelion becoming the brightest comet in more than 40 years.
The births: (yep, definitely more than 2)
1628 - Charles Perrault, French folklorist (d. 1703)
1729 - Edmund Burke, Irish statesman (d. 1797)
1849 - Jean Béraud, French painter (d. 1935)
1856 - John Singer Sargent, American artist (d. 1925)
1876 - Jack London, American author (d. 1916)
1930 - Tim Horton, Canadian hockey player (d. 1974) (DUDE!)
1935 - Kreskin, mentalist
1907 - Sergei Korolev, Russian rocket scientist (d. 1966) (YES, a Rocket Scientist!)
The holidays...(again, yes, more than 1)

I'll go cruise through the drafts, see what's there for a little fun and games.
