We woke up to a dry yard.  There was dancing in the hall.  It rained all afternoon.  The dancing stopped.

Only a couple of readers recognized the ‘Easy Monday’ song.  The holiday is over, I know you know this one:
“Nothing you can make that can’t be made.  No one you can save that can’t be saved.  Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time, it's easy.  __ __ __ __ __, __ __ __ __ __, __ __ __ __ __, __.  Love is all you need.”  Hint: I case you haven’t figured it out, I just gave it away.  Shuffle the words and you’ve got it.

Some of you may have noticed that yesterday’s message came via ‘Gmail’.  It seems that I have been forgiven and it’s OK to resume sending my mail the old fashioned way.  I don’t know how long it will last, but at least I learned an alternate route in case of disaster (555).

I go on everyday about the weather here, but those of you in other parts of the world are having your share of extremes as well.  We’ve been following the fires in Montana and California along with the floods in Texas.  Today we learned from Joe, Lisa’s Dad, about the very high temperatures last week in Northern California.  What we go through is mild by comparison.  Hang in there.

This morning’s trip to Big C was interesting.  We usually get there fairly early, but today was different.  Business was going full speed ahead when we got there.  The place was buzzing with activity.  Big C and the bank branches are upstairs in the complex.  There were crowds around the entrances to the banks and this was curious.  As I looked closely, I realized that the banks were open and the crowds were just waiting for their turn to go inside.  The branches are very small so they either take names or give numbers and only let a few folks in at a time.  In contrast, we had just come from a main, stand-alone branch of our bank where there was no waiting for services, and lots of chairs if things got busy. 

Today’s photo was taken at Big C, in front of the check-out lines.  Who can resist a Hello Kitty umbrella during the rainy season?

We spent part of the afternoon looking at the walls, trying to decide places where we can hang more of Lisa’s artwork.  There comes a time in every artists life when storage becomes an issue.  The time has come.

After dinner we heard Neechanon fussing very loudly and learned that she wanted to go in the pool.  There was a compromise and she and Natcha sat on the steps so that Neechanon could be in the water.  Lisa joined them by the side of the water and they had a meeting (555).  The little one was happy and that made everyone else happy.

Have a Happy Tuesday.
