They Didn't Ask Me


Ah... August. We had tomato sandwiches for lunch. And Red Haven peaches. Mmm.

Red Havens, the perfect peach. Sweet, juicy, flavorful, not fibrous, but gentle delicate fruits that don't travel well. The first ones showed up on Saturday, but needed a few days.

And it was "we" for lunch. At 6:50am when we got up, the sky and air outside was this thick oily yellow color. A look usually reserved for movies to portray impending doom or hot or Old West. In our case, approaching thunderstorms, which arrived a few minutes later. Mrs. Dr. Phil chose to work from her laptop this morning, the hour-by-hour forecast suggesting the torrential rains would let up around 11:30. So we had lunch together.

Of course the rains are supposed to return this evening, just as the GVSU staff Fall welcome picnic begins -- the President's office assuring everyone that the big tents are in place. Hopefully I can find reasonable handicapped parking at 5pm. (grin) And make it out alive after. (double-grin)
