Rain in July-very rare in Texas!

Fort Worth, Texas ~July 2010

We've had much rain this month so far.  Our rain gauge says 2 inches just this afternoon.  The sidewalk out back was totally underwater.  But look at how green our grass is!  We're pretty pleased about that.  Of course, the zinnias are laying over again.  We cut a few of them earlier while it was just sprinkling and now the temperature is down to 72 degrees!  Almost unheard of in July around here.

While you're looking around on my blog, be sure to check out my Jellyfish video.  I've been trying to get some sort of slide show with our personal pictures on here, but still no luck.  I will eventually figure it out tho.  However, the jellyfish are pretty.

Yesterday was my mom's Birthday.  She is officially 84 years old and proud of it, I'm sure!  I've placed a couple of pictures of her on her last Birthday on my blog today.  Actually she is standing in front of her red gazing ball.  I guess I should have picked the picture that shows all three of them.
Happy Birthday Mom!

Next, my dear readers, is the matter of my 1959 survey.  The poll closes tomorrow at around 6:30 pm I believe.  I've only had one taker.  And that brave one is my friend and co-worker Cindy.  Cindy, if you're reading, thanks so much for taking the plunge!  I will reveal the answers on tomorrow or Sunday.

  1. I was really enjoying that rain. It was real nice out. When I would pick up Shawn from daycare he would just watch the rain come down through the window. He wanted to play in it of course, but he was rubbing his eyes so I put him down for a nap and turned on the "rain and thunder" cd I got from my dad. Shawn then fell asleep. =-) He is such a stinker.
