A little Rain

We got very little rain last night. We didn't get the wind damage that some people did. We can always hope for more rain. We did drop down out of the triple digits. We saw some corn fields that is drying up to where the stalks look like it is time to pick it. 
My niece is in Washington State on vacation and the picture is one that she took at Lake Cushman.  I have seen her with a jacket on in a couple of her pictures. I just wish she would bring some of the cool weather back with her. 
The Kansas City Chiefs training camp starts tomorrow at our local college. They think we are really going to have a lot of people here since we don't have to deal with flood waters this year. They didn't have a lock out so they think it will be much better. They have some covered areas to make it cooler and they are trying to make it better for the fans so they will come watch. It is one  thing that I haven't gone to because they aren't that wheel chair friendly in my estimation. 
All the guys at work talk about is going and seeing the cheerleaders. I wonder why as if I didn't  know. 
Do you have plans for the weekend? Mine will be determined by how hot it is. I need to go and find me a couple pair of shorts if it is going to stay really hot.  Finding the length I want will probably be my problem. I don't want them to short, but rather right above the knee I think at my age.  The first Sunday in August will be our family reunion. It will be fun seeing some of my brothers and sisters. How many will be there? We never know. I would like to know how many there are now with all of our extended families. There is ten of kids.  At one time we were well over a 125 and that was several years ago. We will be in the air conditioning. There is just to many that have health issues. 
Well I hope you all have a good FRIDAY. I am looking forward to the weekend and sleeping a little late if possible. Take care and stay cool.

Oh- It is hot here, too. We finally got some rain today and may get a bit more tonight. I think it is too little, too late for the crops though.

I hope you have a good weekend and that you can find some shorts you like. Blessings to you- xo Diana

I saw that picture and thought that must be the Northwest not Missouri! And I was right as I was reading. Yes it has been a cooler summer here..has not reached 90 on the west side of the mountains yet! Usually that means we are in for a HOT August and September!

Ohhh...what fun to have a family reunion. With 10 kids you know you will have a lot showing up!
The picture is beautiful, too bad it's not like that all over.
It's sad how some places need rain and some don't.

Have a wonderful day today my friend!

Shirley, wouldn't you love to be somewhere cool like Washington state? I know I sure would. It is very hot and dry here in Central Tx. How wonderful that your family still has a family reunion time. I think this custom may be going away, but I am so glad you all are continuing on with yours. Have a happy week, dear friend~ Vicki
