Seeing Red

April 22, 2013
It appears that those April showers have finally shown up.  Along with those showers, the possibility of flash flooding.  As always, it’s either feast of famine.   The rain, even though it came as a gulley washer, was a welcome break. Now that the rain has arrived, everywhere you look, you see signs that spring has sprung.  The cooler temperatures have people out walking, children are practicing baseball and soccer on every available patch of grass in Miller.  When the rain lets up for a minute, that it.  It is a beautiful sight to see.  Kind of gives you a glimpse of what life was like before we became so dependent on air conditioning.  Put me, coach, I’m ready to play.

Tempers are suffering—the heat makes us all a little crazy. Remember that before you give into a little, well, let’s call it, HEAT RAGE.   Speaking of getting a little hot under the collar, today is the last day to file your income taxes on time. There is no point in griping about it. Griping just makes the people listening to you want to tell you to stick a sock in your pie hole.

The Prodigal returns as heat climbs

Can you believe this heat?  The thermometer hit 95° yesterday.  That just doesn’t seem right.  This blogger can almost hear the echoes across cyber space--why are you talking about the heat in Texas? How redundant.   Maybe so, but even down here in Texas, we raise an eyebrow when it hits 95° in April.  Yeah, yeah, yeah.  This blogger’s ears are burning, and you’re right, this blog isn’t about the heat in Texas, what would be the point of that?  Blogging is kind of new for me, this being my first attempt.  The idea to start a blog came to this blogger out of the blue when the radio was belting out an oldie but a goodie, Back in the Saddle.  It started me thinking about how sometimes the hardest thing in life is to give something a try again once you’ve gotten hurt the first time.  Ergo--the idea for this blog where yours truly will be “riding the range” so to speak and doling out encouraging words to all the little doggies in…


The blog was created for the fans of the @Double D Series. It's purpose is to serve as a time line of the stories and to provide a list of books available, as well as books that are in the works.
I hope you enjoy it!
