It is too hot to ride until after dark and I don't have a headlight - I can't seem to remember it until the stores are closed.

While out riding I did find a house similar to mine (brick and straight lines) that has wonderful landscaping with rock edging. It looks better than the rectangular shaped rocks that I was looking for so I'll have to see where they got the rocks. I can carry only a few at a time in the car though and I sure can't afford to buy them all at once or have someone else do it. I need to make the cats get and earn a living for me.

Thursday Aug 18, 2005 It is still hot but I did ride my bike for a little bit this evening. The breeze was nice. Tomorrow, one of the guys at work will put on the 'computer' as he calls the odometer that does more than measure miles. I had trouble because of the shocks and don't want to mess up the new bike.

I added JimBob's picture. He seems a little stiff right now but I'm sure he'll become comfortable in his new home soon. It took both of the cats about a month before they were completely comfortable here.

Just a short note from Texas where it is HOT and the humidity is high thus the heat index is really hot. Too hot to go out to ride my bike this early in the evening. Finished watering the hanging baskets - everything in the garden looks pretty good thanks to all the recent rains.

The new gargoyle in the garden seems to be doing his job. His name is JimBob and his job is to keep the neighbors rats out of my yard (they built a raised deck around the above ground pool so now we all get to watch them and lots of rats live under their desk). Hopefully, when he does this task for a while, I can add weed watching to his job description.
