Todays Ramblings...

So the weather man (notice I said MAN) claims
we would have thunderstorms today...
guess what?  NOTHING!

Not one single drop where I live.  He did nail the high temp though...


Yep you read that correct!  So what did I see outside...

Nothing but BLUE SKIES!!!

So this brings me to my next topic...
Daughter was invited to a birthday party today, 
so after dropping her off I snagged a few photo's 
of the house, the garage, and the spare house.

Who lives like this???  WOW!

Down here in the desert, I can't even imagine the electric bill.  
Let alone maintenance and upkeep!

This would be the um, 6 car garage.  Need more room, 
ya they can handle you on the back 40.

Then what?  On the way home I decided to take 
a pic of the corn.  It's unfortunate that these corn fields are slowly 
going by the way side.  I'm completely bummed I never 
got a pic with my bug (Willard).

After pulling into our place, I notice how pretty the entrance is and 
grabbed a few more photo's.

So the Pacific Northwest (Washington State) might have
 Lilac's & Rhododendron's 
but we in the desert have Bouganvilla!!!

And they are GORGEOUS!!!

And don't forget PALM TREE'S!

If there's 2 things I's Coffee & Palm Tree's!

Life is Good!

There are a lot of houses similar to that around here. This is a tourist area, and the saddest part of all is that many like that are lived in for maybe, at the top, 4 months of the year. There is one around the corner from me that I'd estimate valued at #350,000, at least. It was just completed right after I moved in 3 years ago, and I don't think the Texas plates have been at the car more than 1 month each year. I really don't get it. I 'spose if I had that kind of money, I'd have no better way to spend my money, either. Oh, well!

BTW, I meant to say ....

One of the beautiful things about living in the area you and I do is those skies! I never get tired of looking up and seeing the endless blue!

Wow what a huge house!!! I would hate to see the electric bill and the upkeep has to be $$$. Oh and I have to have a car for every garage so that means more $$. BUT it was beautiful!!
I love Bouganvilla. I have tried to grow it when we had our house but it just wouldn't grow for me. Your flowers are so pretty!!

Take care!
