This is my banter for Thursday August 22nd..

Hello everyone:: I trust your Wednesday was an enjoyable one.. I hope it was not unusually hot where you live.. Here it was sweltering hot.. Sticky hot, and any other name you would like to use to describe our Wednesday.. Every time I even went near the patio windows I could feel the  heat trying to gain entrance to the house.. Outside was like a wall of heat and moister, that took the breath away from me.. Each time the pup went out she never stayed long, as she was feeling the heaviness in the air too.. It’s pretty bad when your dog doesn’t like the outside.. The plants on the deck had to be watered, even though we had rain over night.. The thunder and lightening was a sight to see and hear.. The thunder was so loud that it scared the dogs.. They certainly didn’t expect that sound.. I like to lay in bed and listen to the thunder and try to figure out how far away it is.. When, I captured the photo above there was no sound just the lightening, lighting up the darkness.. There was a lot of different patterns, but for some reason my camera wasn’t acting right.. I wish I had caught a few of the other lightening bolts.. They were breath taking..

As I sit here writing, I can almost here the sound of thunder again. The forecast was rain today, but alas no rain has fallen.. I kind of hope there will be another thunder storm tonight, because I feel asleep fairly quick.. I know there are people who are deathly afraid of thunder and lightening.. They run and hide as soon as they see or hear the first hint of the storm.. I know of quite a few animals that fear the storm, and become agitated and plain old crazy.. (in a playful kind of way)  I know of one dog that is like a barometer.. Her demeanor begins to change, and she becomes very clingy.. She is very accurate and has predicted storms that are coming.. That’s kind of cool, if you think about it.. There are people who feel a heaviness on their head, when a storm or even rain coming.. I am one of those people.. Like most, we experience a headache that lingers on.. I’m not a fan of the headaches and I know of no one that likes them.. The headache determines what you can do, and if you bend over to pick something up.. Well, your head throbs like crazy.. For me the thunder storm can come visit anytime, but it must leave the headache behind.. And I will not be on the golf course anytime soon.. I know lightening can strike you any where you are.. Indoors or outdoors.. All I can say is be careful when lightening is showing off in the skies..

Our Thursday is going top be a big difference from Wednesday’s heat.. The temperature is only supposed to be in the twenties, and very bearable.. I will be out sitting either under the gazebo or in the sun light.. It would be a good time to get some tan.. My legs are as white as snow.. Heck, I could be a ghost except for my arms and maybe face.. Those parts have been exposed to the sun and have picked up a bit of color.. I checked on the sun flower plant to make sure no squirrel has taken the flower.. I think I have it far enough away from the railing of the deck, so they can’t get it.. I take a couple pictures each day, so I won’t forget it’s progress.. I was thinking of making a shroud  from barbed wire.. Then, let them try to take the flower.. It would be the same as covering my rose tree with chicken wire.. They were stealing the buds off of that one too.. I know there is only the one doing these things as I have him recorded on camera.. Little fart!!  Well, this lady has lots to do.. So I’m blowing this popcorn stand.. Till later.. Try not to pet a skunk.. 🙂 🙂

I would like to thank all my readers for coming by to read my banter.. 🙂 🙂  The first photo was taken by myself, and the other two by some very talented artists… 🙂 🙂 I hope you enjoy..

Hello everyone.. I will be taking this week off, because of being under the weather. I have no energy, and every part of me hurts. Even my baby toes. 🙁 I feel like my head is going to burst. I sleep most of the day, and feel like I have been dragged down the road. My goal is to be back Monday with my story. Till then, it’s plenty of fluids, chicken soup, and lots of rest. I don’t wish this upon anyone. 

Our weather here has been hot with high humidity, and thunder storms. The weather man has shown the heat is going to continue into next week. I hope where ever you are, that the weather is a little better than here. If it is hot take care of yourself, your pets, young children, and seniors. Drink lots of water.. I wish you all a great week.. be safe… Till later… hydrate… 🙂
