Friday JohnKu - AKA - TGIF
Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF
“So what are we doing today, Little one?”“Friday? Lovely sunshine? 98 degrees? Absolutely nothing but relax and stay cool..”“I can handle that.”   Here we are on a Friday again. It is so nice to head into a weekend. I hope your week wasn’t too stressful. If it was, then you are only eight hours until relief. I went to the dentist today. My teeth had not been cleaned since October of 2019. I was…

Thursday - A Little Personal - Lucy and Twiggy Inspect the Work
Thursday – A Little Personal – Lucy and Twiggy Inspect the Work
A short note. I am currently extending the downspout drains to take the water away from the center of the yard. During the heavy rains, the yard floods and takes a while to move away. Twiggy loves to play in the puddles, and Lucy hates to get her feet wet. In some of the later photos (By the glove), a tall white pipe is a cleanout. It needs to be cut and lowered by about six inches, so it is not…

Friday JohnKu - AKA - TGIF
Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF
  “Okay Twiggy. Come over here and we can play a game.”“Catch me?”“Well it’s Friday so why not?” Another Friday and another fast week. I love the refrain, “I just don’t know where the time goes.” It speaks so well for the current situation. But, of course, it is a refrain spoken mostly by the senior members of the population. I have to plead guilty as being included in that body of folks. But,…

“Lucy, come quick. Dad’s been at it again.” “Coming Little One.” “Look at all that junk. Wat’s he been doing?” “I really don’t know. We’ll have to ask.” “What are you doing over on the other side of the yard.” “trying to find a place to hide. That stuff looks dangerous.” “Oh, I don’t think so. Check it out.” “I’m going to give it a sniff over.” “Well? What do you think?” “Smells like…

Top Ten Things Not to Do at Graduation time
Top Ten Things Not to Do at Graduation time
Unsplash photo by Vasily Koloda   This post originally ran on June 8th, 2015. Although COVID has replaced physical ceremonies with virtual, it still seems relevant.   The inspiration for this list is the fact that it is graduation season. When you think of all the graduations that are being held in the US alone, you realize the potential exists that these ten things occur with similar results. I…

Views of the Neighborhood - Storm Assessment
Views of the Neighborhood – Storm Assessment
We should take a moment before we begin, to remember all those who took part in the invasion of France on D-Day June 6th, 1944. They are the greatest generation and are now fading to eternity. If you know a vet who served in WW II give them a hug. Today’s tour is going to be brief. So brief in fact that we won’t need the bus. Also, we are going to be catered from Chick-Fil-A. Now before you…

Stream of Consciousness Saturday - Prompt - Yarn
Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt – Yarn
  I had just finished digging out my olive tree and sat down to have a cold drink of tea. All of a sudden, the United States Postal Service person leaned on the front doorbell. The bell is right above a sign that says PLEASE DO NOT RING DOORBELL.  I finally got Twiggy off the ceiling and opened the door. In the middle of the porch, there was a soaking wet package laying in the opposite direction…

Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF
“It sure is wet, Lucy.”“We need the rain.”“But not on Friday.”   Friday is here again. It seems like a very short week. But, wait, that’s because it was. Memorial Day took 20% of the week. Well, that explains it. Our part of Texas is getting a lot of rain. It looks like it will continue through the weekend. This is totally fine with me since we need it. I did not enjoy the teeth-rattling thunder…

Thursday - A Little Personal - Olive Concerns
Thursday – A Little Personal – Olive Concerns
“I can see you have some concerns, Little One.” “I have been thinking of that olive tree that got frozen this winter.” “What about it?” “Sometimes these things come back.” “But the boss already got a new magnolia to go in that spot.” “Look. Just as I figured. Little green shoots.” “You sure you aren’t seeing things?” “No. Over there I’m seeing things but not on the tree.” “I’ll be darned. You…

Wednesday Story Day - AKA - Hump Day
Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day
  “For the last time, it’s Wednesday.”“Doesn’t hurt to wish.” It is Wednesday Story Day again, and last week we learned that the Escalade was purchased by a widow and since Cortez’s men have it and it was not reported stolen; only two states of nature can exist. 1. The widow is in cahoots with Cortez’s men. 2. The widow is no longer with us. Mike (The FBI agent) has called the Reno PD to check on…

  “Lucy. Why are you so fuzzy?”“Cause the Boss hasn’t figured out depth of field yet.”“Glad it’s not you.” It is Friday again, and time to be thinking about the weekend. For those who work, it promises to be a long weekend. Not much to report today. This week seemed pretty slow. Kept the pressure on my WIP. Had to do some research which tends to slow things down a bit. I make a promise it will be…

Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy – Squirrel Dundee
“Okay, so you think there are squirrels in the yard?” “Not think, Lucy. I know there are squirrels in the yard.” “What makes you think so?” “I’ve seen them.” “Seen them. When? Where?” “Near that confounded bird handout thingy.” “Yeah, that makes sense, I guess. They are after the seeds.” “There shouldn’t be any seeds, to begin with, for heaven’s sake.” “We discussed this. You need to share…

“You staying in the shade?”“Yup. I need to keep up my stamina.”“Let me guess. So you can catch Friday when he shows up.”“Does that seem strange to you?”“No just typical.”   It is Wednesday Story Day again, and last week we found out that the light-colored Escalade used by Cortez’s thugs didn’t have any reports of being stolen. The plate on it belonged to a Prius. There was one Escalade stolen in…

“What the heck is that? Hey Lucy. You see this thing in the tree?” “Lucy? You on the chaise?” “Okay, this is not funny. LUCY.” “There you are. I’ve been looking all over for you.” “I was on the other side, Little One.” “Come over here. I have to show you something.” “Man, you move quicker than a squirrel late for lunch.” “Check it out.” “Everything looks normal to me.” “Not over there,…
