Good news.  The power of prayers is underestimated these days.

We had 7 days of cool and low humidity days with the highest being 79° F.  Well the A/C unit went out yesterday and it was 87° outside today and looking at the thermometer in side it is 79° inside with the windows open and the fans running.

I am waiting on the A/C repairman, he is supposed to be here this afternoon.  I wonder how we made it as a kid with only window fans, I am dying here right now.

I was thinking about you this morning watching the news.  Best of luck stay safe.  Praying for you and others I know  and all who will be affected by the storm.

We had a fishing/hunting camp and we always had regular food to eat, but when we went out fishing, there was always vienna sausage, potted meat and crackers on the boat.  People would tell me if I knew what was in them, and I would answer no, and I liked them and don't want to know.

On and off showers all morning last time I checked the rain gauge had 1.5 inches.  during the storms, the wind is gusting according to the news 15 to 20 miles an hour. We came out good in this one. Feel sorry for the pool people in Texas.

Yesterday I was able to get into the garden with the hippers to raise the rows then the harrows.  Been having some problems with pooling at the end of the rows not letting them drain.

I used to have a George Foreman Rotisserie, we gave it away when we moved here.  I shore miss that thing, made the tenderest  juiciest mouth watering turkey you could ask for.

When I first moved here 9 years ago, it was considered
zone 8a, it is now 8b.  I don't remember which seed company last year still showed me in 8a.  Last year was definitely milder.

Rajun, I have both of them and also a short handle cane knife.  We called the bottom one a ditch bank knife.  I broke the handle on it trying to trim brush from under the fence when we first moved here.  Used them a lot as a kid cutting lawns with a push reel mower.  Would use the swing blade to cut to clean up after the mower, the cane knife to edge cement and the ditch bank knife to cut the open ditches.

Not the fondest memories of the "Good Old Days".

Those things will survive a nuclear attack.  I use Hi-Yield Garden pet and livestock insect control.  The active ingredient is Permethrin.  It is the best thing I have used on them but you have to spray it approximately once a week or after a rain.  I also spray it around the outside of the house to kill spiders and in my shed to kill insects.  It does a great job on the spiders.
