Glad I’m Not Taking a Driving Trip

Noticed a couple of things…nothing new…since the first hurricane hit Texas.  We were told that half their oil refineries were shut down.  With in a day, the gas prices in California jumped up 25 cents a gallon.

Now nearly all of the refineries are back working and noticed that gas prices are not dropping.  Want to bet it will take weeks may be months till prices will go back down?  Why can they go up so fast and down so slow?

P.S.  The only thing that never goes down is state gas tax.  Our Governor just approved an 18 cent a gallon tax increase for…that is unclear just yet. LOL.

Early Fall in the High Desert…Great Job Texas…Planning the Fall Trips

I am sitting in my back garden working on my blogs this morning.  It looks to me that the High Desert is entering Fall early this year.  I had to cut back on my watering early.  Fall flowers and our  animals are moving into my garden early.  I wonder if the same thing will be happening around the rest of the United States?

Irony;  Less deaths in a week from a massive storm affecting millions in Texas than what occurs every weekend in shootings in Chicago.  Great Job Texas!

We are starting our planning for two Fall trips.  One to Washington D.C..  We laughingly say we are going to there to visit the swamp.  In reality we want to see many things we have missed on our earlier trips.  I would be embarrassed if I was in our current congress with only 8% of their constituents saying they are doing their jobs.  Both parties.

Finally our last trip a joyful one.  My Dad’s 100th Birthday party in Minnesota.  He worked hard farming his whole life.  He fought in the second world war and set the example for me(Viet Nam) and my son(Iraq) that you have a responsibility to give back to your country.  Should be a fun party.

More later.

Labor Day, My Back Garden is Overwhelmed with Working Wildlife

Fall is here.  The sky opened up yesterday and this morning is full of wildlife.  The temperatures dropped into the 80’s and wildlife is thrilled.
