These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Mean Ol' Letter W

My trip to Lubbock is canceled, due to the letter W.

Well & Weather.

First, the weather. This photo was taken several hours ago. It has dropped a lot more snow since then. Now, let me be honest, there still isn't a lot out there, probably about 2-3 inches as I write this, but enough to make me question the wisdom of trying to leave out of here tomorrow morning. I mean, if you don't have to take a risk, who do it? And it is still snowing, hard.

The significance of this picture is that the farthest trees you can see are just across the road from me, probably 30 yards. That snow is blocking the view with gusto today.

And the well. The photo is the well doctor in the process of pulling one of the 20 foot long sections of the pipe out of the well. He had to pull all 12 or 13 of these out because the pump in on the last one, of course. I'm glad it is done. I have water again. The problem is that I had laundry to do, and while I've almost got that done along with the rest of the cleaning before leaving the house, I'm just wondering if it is a good idea to rush around under these circumstances.

So I've talked with the house/puppy sitter and my nephew, and it works for everyone for me to postpone my trip till next week. The weather in a week will be between 55-65°. Much better for traveling.

While the well doctor was operating on the well today, I kept the dogs inside so they wouldn't bark at him and drive us both crazy. Lola and Sammy spent most of the time right here ........

just watching him work. They had a real bird's eye view from that window, as they could see every move the guy made. Of course, as soon as I picked up the camera, Lola ran to see what I was doing, and Sammy turned around and watched me. Silly dogs.

So, I'll be around for a few more days. Live with it. :)


  1. Glad that your well is working again. That's pretty good that they were able to come out the same day that you called.

    Sorry that your trip had to be postponed, but I am glad you won't be trying to travel in that kind of weather.

  2. See snow is evil. I am glad water is working and glad you are warm and not so glad you postponed your trip but again snow is evil.


  3. Me, too, Caroline, but honestly most of the people around here do a pretty good job of being prompt. It's always nice, especially with something as basic as water!

    Bobbie, you crack me up! My snow isn't evil, but as many times as I've told you that, I'm guessing, I'll never get through to you on that! LOL!

  4. So sorry your trip got cancelled. Maybe you can re-schedule it sometime soon. Hugs my friend!

  5. Hes, Patti, I'm going next week. It pushes it awfully close to my Tucson trip, but I don't want to put it off. My sis and BIL are too precious to back-burner.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
