Hey, we have rain!!! Lots of rain all day long. This is good. What is more fun on a rainy day than sitting around watching movies?
Okay, there are a lot of things that are more fun to do when it's raining if you have a touch of ADD. For those of you that are a bit more sedate, how 'bout cute animal videos. Okay, my cute animals to be exact. Ok? :D
It'll be fun.
Here is my latest video starring Syd and Roxie. A plague of locusts has...

When I was a little girl my Dad would drive us to the Gulf Coast. When we saw a green hazy sky on the highway horizon we knew we were close because that was Houston. A city built from petroleum refineries and large chemical processing plants. I guess a green polluted sky was to be expected.

As promised, am finally getting around to telling you all a bit about Dallas and some of the ways it is trying to re-invent itself. When I moved back here some seventeen or so years ago, I hated Dallas. It was a soul-less concrete vacuum of commerce. Nothing else. No art scene. Pretentious and materialistic.

The good news is that it is raining today in Lewisville. It gave me time to be indoors and catch up on computer and camera stuff.
Lot and lots of photos on my cameras SD card. Got them sorted and loaded into picture files;
Visit to Dad's, wildflowers, garden flowers, birds and of course that new carpet I have been talking about.
So uploaded a few shots to Flickr and that is when the wheels fell off of my perfect day. Flickr will not let me put...
