The Need for September

A warm hello to all my readers around the planet! I am grateful for each and every one of you!

Three months of very hot dry weather pattern in the 100s F (38 C) here in Texas  has broken. We had some good rains and the Temperature is in the high 50s F (10 C), which is actually cool for this time of year,  Its a much welcomed break from what I call "bug and lizard weather". 

This has been an incredible summer for spiders.  Webs are everywhere.  But they do eat bugs so I consider them allies of a sort.  I can do quite nicely without the scorpions, which tend to find their way into Texas Hill Country bathrooms,  searching for moisture.  That's where the Texas geckos come in.  They usually pick them up at the pass before they get into the house. They are not green like the GEICO insurance gecko, more a pinkish beige with brown spots, but like their Hawaiian cousins they do stick to walls and ceilings if they get in the house.  Texas tree frogs can give quite a serenade after rains.  When it gets too dry it gets quiet at night, don't know where they go,..

I am going out to drive tonight to see how they ride share market is.  There are not as many riders but there's an even greater drop in the number of drivers during the COVID panic of 2020.  So one never knows until you go out and see. Hopefully I at least break even on fuel during this test.

I need to raise at least $600 for September, if you can help it would be greatly appreciated. There's a donation icon on the right side of the blog on the desktop version of the blog.  Only donate if you have the means to do so.  This is a value for value blog, and I know there's many who have little to spare in these moments.

I love you ALL!
