We have been back close to a month now and getting back into the groove. One night at cribbage we celebrated little Bea's 95th birthday! She is so sharp and fun to play cards with along with the others I might add. Most folks are still gone for the summer months but we were glad to be back for this little event.
Earl's leg is slowly improving. It is still a bit red and swells up a little during the day but it will take a while before all the meds perform their miracles if they ever do. So far though the reports are good and getting better so that is a big Plus!
We did have a bit of a monsoon one day where they registered over 5" of rain within a matter of hours and a very positive note on this that although some places in our town were hit hard by the blast of rain, our little area did just fine. We were built back when they took those sort of things into consideration and planned ahead. Not so sure the builders all do that now however I think the desert landscaping helps too. That water gets sucked up so fast with our rock yards. ha! It's a pretty amazing sight! We sat on the porch laughing and drinking coffee and watching our street turn into a small river but all the homes were fine. Within a matter of a few hours you would never even have known it had rained except for the humidity in the air!
