Hot N Crazy Daze Have Descended Upon Juniper Canyon!
Along with dust storms without wind. Its eyrie when the dust begins to rise without the wind!
Creepy unusual clouds above my head…
Almost makes you feel like you are in the Outer Limits or the Twilight Zone!
Kaaaa-Boom the thunder and lightning began. I was over feeding Melody and saw the strike hit…
The first fire of the season was born with winds blowing in our direction…we live about 10 miles from here if we drive the road but across country it is only 5-6 miles with lots of wheat fields in between.
Our neighbors and community jumped into action and thankfully no one was hurt, no homes were lost and the fire was out! Sadly they lost several hundred acres of wheat.
Scary times here as we have been declared a drought county…
Last night it was 73 degrees at 11:30…that is hot for us this time of year…
We have hit above 100 degrees most of the month of June…with a week straight of 110 plus degrees!
Stay tuned with Ellie and I on the dusty trail of life:)

I came across this a long time ago and it hits the nail on the head for people who blame their problems and mistakes on their family or on their parents or on the man in the moon. They blame every problem they have on someone else, unfortunately until they quit telling lies and using manipulations, until they admit their wrongs and look only to themselves, they are a lost cause. I know people that are very good at lying, really good and they roll along sucking people into their lies. They believe their lies so much they create a false truth and will defend their lies at any cost to you or anyone else. I agree with this poster…Hallelujah and Amen!
