Out Back 4/24/04 Posted by Hello 
  Hello...

Well I returned from my trip on Thursday (I've just been laying low, trying to decide what to do with my life I guess).

I think first, I'll just get everyone up to date on what's gone on since I've been home.

I got back about 1:00 on Thursday afternoon. I immediately heard from Gramma how bad things were while I was gone (nothing happened, that's just the way she is). She told me that she hopes I've got all my "running" out of me now.
While I was gone, there was apparently quite a storm that rolled through here, early on Friday the 14th. 2 branches off of a tree fell on top of the carport.

Nothing else major happened in my absence.

The rest of Thursday was spent doing my laundry & pretty much just trying to get used to the heat & humidity.
I ran into town to buy some milk & orange juice.

Friday, I got up & went to work on removing those branches on the carport. It didn't take me much more than an hour. The rest of the day, I did not do much. I pulled some things out from below the bathroom sink & went through them (threw a bunch of crap away).

Made some goulash for dinner. After dinner, I went outback to see what the pond was up to...It had gone down since I last saw it, although it is still up from more than a month ago.

The two Least Grebes were still down there. I also spotted a Groove-billed Ani I had not seen one around this place for a humber of years (I think since 1989 or 1990). I wonder if it is because of more water than usual being available?

The weather is miserable, highs in the 90's every day, high humidity (dew points in the high 60's-low 70's) & it doesn't even get below 70 at night. Next week the temperature is supposed to climb over 100, with "heat indexes" over 110.

I am going to try to update my Blog again today, giving details about my trip & perhaps adding some pictures (if I can figure this out)...

Be good everybody
