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 cyberland who are struggling to get back up after they have fallen.  What were you expecting deep philosophical wisdom?  Sorry readers, that’s about as deep as this blogger gets. So, what can you expect on these posts?  Well this intrepid blogger will be dishing up whatever catches the attention of Millerites, some gossip, and sure why not, some advice.

With that in mind, there is a certain man about Miller who might want to listen up. Let’s call him farmboy.  Miller is about to welcome home one of its prodigal children.  This feisty little lady has been hanging out in the Big Apple for a few years. Let’s call her snowbird.  It will be interesting to see if her return causes farmboy to get back in the saddle and give romance another try.  (That there would be a clever tie in to the song, just in case you didn’t catch it.)  Millerites will just have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, life is good here in our little neck of the Piney Woods.  If you are out and about at dusk, be sure to use your mosquito repellant.  Those little buggers are especially bad this year.
