    {{{{{Hi, rubyr!}}}}}

    Happy Friday... sorry about the thunderstorm.

    We have infestation of geckos... there are currently 15 on the screen of the porch. I've turned on two more lights to attract more moths, so they can all have snacks... :-)

          and answer for her ownself, but the island is yet afloat and the birds sing and rabbits dance.

          Me - I'm feeling agony not to show up in Washington for the XL Pipeline protest and relieved that Thursday's news' speculations about new sheens reported in the Gulf do not seem to have turned into the big story we are hoping never to hear.

            turner. Big relief about that, if they're telling the truth, that is.

            and we've all become hyper-vigilant. There are often little slicks out there, especially around rigs, and there are some natural seeps. I used to dive around the rigs, and a little color in the water wasn't unusual, and would dissipate fairly quickly.

        We got some rain yesterday PM and things cooled off nicely. But this afternoon it was (again) 99 degrees on the porch...

        Three more weeks...three more weeks...three more weeks... and it will be a little cooler...
