Skip just called from Georgetown. He's been delayed by a flat tire, but is on his way. He's stopping in Crystal Springs to buy BBQ for our dinner. He finally has a cell phone! Welcome to the 21st century, Cuz!

I met George for lunch today at the Visitor's Center on the Trace. He brought his own sandwich and I picked up a Santa Fe Salad at Arby's. Our picnic table was much more conducive to conversation than most of the noisy restaurants where we've been. I always enjoy talking to George. It's a regular connection to our hometown that I don't share with anyone else.

This is the first day it hasn't rained in about two weeks, but the day isn't over. There's still a 40% chance of showers, they say. The grass in our yard grew halfway to my knee in the past week. I sure am glad we have a dependable yard service to cut it regularly. The rose bushes that I trimmed so radically just a month ago are bushed out with buds already. I've always heard that roses love water and sunshine. Mine should be very happy and give me roses in a few days.

Cathy, do you remember telling me that you thought when the weather man said, "40% chance of rain", it meant we'd have rain 40% of the day? Yep, you really did say that. :)

Silly me, did I really say that? Yes, I actually remember when I thought that. Hopefully, I didn't say that to very many people.
