Summer 2013 July 31

79 degrees this morning.  Started raining about 6:30 a.m., so couldn’t sit out on the patio in spite of excellent weather.   I really don’t like rain.  I prefer sunny weather, even though I know rain is necessary.  I have never considered rain to be romantic.  Of course, it is one of those things that… More Summer 2013 July 31

Summer 2013 July 30

Warming up.  74 degrees this morning.  Feeling now like a possible rain. Trying to find a good repair/maintenance company to work on the house/yard etc. is difficult.  There are a lot of good companies, but a lot of incompetent ones also.  “Angies List” is good sometimes, sometimes it isn’t.

Really enjoyed the Reunion.  It is nice to have several days to… More Summer 2013 July 24

Summer 2013 July 23

Heavy rain, thunder and wind greeted us this morning as we drove into Lakeland.  I’m not sure if I have ever seen lightning like that. The Summer, 2013 Courter/Wherry Reunion is over.  I always look forward to it and always feel some regret when it ends. Otherwise, hectic day, trying to catch up etc.
