It rained all day yesterday and all night and the weatherman said it would rain again today. I don’t mind. It fills the pond and waters the hay. It keeps me from having to ride that dang bicycle. I seem to get more done around the house on rainy days. Yesterday while ironing clothes, I watched "Cold Mountain" on the USA channel although I was hoping for some more Olympics. At the end of the movie, I was disgusted with myself for watching. I had been fairly enthralled with the movie, but then it ended badly. I really hate that. I don’t normally watch TV during the day (and rarely at night). Now I remember why.
I did watch the local news and weather this morning. It seems that Gov. Perry has endorsed the Harrold ISD’s decision to let teachers carry a concealed weapon. You go, Gov Goodhair! Once again, it was pointed out that Harrold sits right on Hwy 287 and is not close to any law enforcement agencies. I guess Vernon or Electra would be closest. Did I ever mention that I was a waitress at a truckstop on Hwy 287 back when I was a senior in high school? I worked from 3PM to midnight. What were my parents thinking? The sheriff’s deputies would drive by and check on me from time to time. It was a real learning experience.
Last night Toby and I watched the Olympics and read our books. It was a quiet evening with the girl starting a new class in Lawton. You know I love the beach volleyball, it was a great game last night against Brazil. The Americans are going for gold now – yeha. Then the women’s trampoline event came on. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. I was wowed! Me being a scaredy cat on a trampoline, this event blew my mind. Those girls were bouncing so high, and then they started flipping and twisting. It was amazing!
Today, I’m headed to town for appointments, Wal-Mart, and lunch with Jes. Maybe I will drop by and check on the GGs.
