July 2022

Hi folks, Welcome back. How's your weekend going? I went to a lovely memorial service yesterday for a friend who passed away last week. It was a remarkable outpouring of love from his family and friends. There were at least several hundred people in attendance, and I wouldn't be surprised if the total number passed 1000. Really a touching day. As for today, not sure about the schedule, although I'm sure it includes some gardening time at some point. BDH and Little Buddha say the highs will be in the mid-80's but not all that muggy, so warm but bearable.... Read more →

Give Sammy Hagar credit: The 74-year-old singer (who turns 75 in October) is still out out there busting his ass. He doesn't need the money, especially given his successful tequila and rum ventures. The guy lives for singing and performing live in his sixth decade in the music business, and he still looks and sounds great. The faces around him change every so often, but the modern Jimmy Buffett is still delivering some old-fashioned rock. Hagar and his current band, The Circle (featuring former Van Halen bandmate Michael Anthony, Vic Johnson, and Jason Bonham) have a new album coming out... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What a long week. What's on the schedule for this weekend? Not sure on our end just yet, although I'm always hoping for more garden time. I probably need to water the plants and mow the lawn at some point. BDH and Little Buddha think that should all be doable, so that's where we'll start. In the meantime, let's take a peek at the headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Clutter.... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? I had a lovely time in the garden last night. The bees were everywhere, doing their thing. The plants looked great, the weather was finally manageable again. All in all, a fun time, right up until the part where my brain started trying to convince me that this is the end of August, not July. Don't know where that came from, but I couldn't shake the idea that September starts next week. Don't rush me through the summer, brain. That's not nice. BDH and Little Buddha just said not to worry about it, and they'll... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Our crew is doing well at the moment, even though I didn't have any luck at the bookstore yesterday. BDH and Little Buddha say that's fine. They're focused on getting the latest weather forecast, and apparently we're looking at another nice day today. That's terrific. Today will probably be a little bit on the quiet side, so it sounds like I should get some quality garden time later. Gonna focus on that, and not the fact that July is already almost over. (How the hell did that happen?) Let's see what's going on in the... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back. How are you? It's currently 57 degrees here, and it feels fantastic. BDH and Little Buddha say the forecast calls for a high of 80 degrees, with a "real feel" of...80 degrees. We can work with that. Got a little rain yesterday, so the garden is also happy. Of course today is the weekly trip to the bookstore. Fingers crossed that I finally find something new for the guys to read, especially if another heat wave keeps them sitting right next to the fan for a few days. Now, let's see what's going on in the... Read more →

Hi everyone, How was the rest of your weekend? That was rough. As expected, we didn't do much besides try to stay cool. This heat wave is keeping me from garden time, and I don't care for that one little bit, especially when everything looks so nice. BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to be a touch cooler today, with a "real feel" high of about 86 degrees. It's a step in the right direction, I guess. The guys also we're supposed to get some rain, starting this morning. That would certainly be great for the flowers, but can... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? I know we don't usually hang out on Saturdays, but BDH and Little Buddha wanted to say hi. (We also don't want to move away from the fan at the moment.) The guys tell me that the high temps this weekend are supposed to be 94 degrees and 96 degrees, so I'm not sure if we're going to do much over the next 48 hours besides just try to stay as cool as possible. We might have to go grocery shopping, but almost everything else feels like it can wait until at least Monday, you... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. Everyone staying cool? We're doing our best on this end. Sadly, I have a dentist appointment later today. It's just a cleaning, but going too and from the office will mean an extended time away from our fans, and I don't care for that at all. What's on tap for the weekend? BDH and Little Buddha just told me both days should be scorchers before it finally starts to cool just a little bit on Monday. That doesn't work for me either. Well, I guess we'll have to figure...

Hi folks, How are we all doing? Everyone staying cool? Yesterday was actually fairly manageable during the day, as long as I never moved more than a foot away from the fan. The night was brutal, though. It was soupy, even with the fan blowing. BDH and Little Buddha don't really want to tell me tonight's forecast, so that's not a good sign. Well, the fridge will stay stocked with water, and the fan will put in some more overtime. I just hope the garden makes it through this stretch okay. Anyway, that's our story. The guys say the coffee... Read more →
