The weather has been beautiful here, but maybe just a tad warm. Today is suppose to be the last day for temps in the 80’s due to a cold front moving in tomorrow morning. Yesterday while hanging laundry on the clothesline, I had the thought: November in OK is like summer in NM. The morning was cool and crisp while the day warmed up to the lower 80’s. It is difficult to complain, but the house warmed up quite a bit too, because there was no breeze. I just refuse to turn the air conditioner on midway through October.
When Toby got home yesterday, we fed the chickens, picked a few more ripe tomatoes out of the garden and ate burgers cooked on the grill. It was such a lovely evening we decided to go for a bike ride. Unfortunately, Zoe, the Great Dane, decided to follow us. She came running down the road after we had ridden off. It would not be so bad, but I worry about her getting ran over by some big oil truck or other idiot who drives extremely fast on these back roads. We turned around and brought her home, but it was fun having her run beside us. It was beginning to get dark, so we went for a short walk on our property instead. I had another thought while walking: you know you are getting old when you want to hurry home so that you don’t miss "Antique Roadshow."
Another thought: Toby and I have been watching an Obama campaign commercial that I have thought did not sound right. I had Toby listen closer. Obama says that McCain is not going to give any thing to the middle and lower classes, but that he (Obama) is going to give three times what McCain gives. Hmm, 3 X 0 is 0. Sounds like Obama is not going to give anything either. Pretty words can be deceptive.
I’m off to Ft. Worth and the Kimball Museum. It should be a great day.
