Socked in!,,,Rain steady for 2 days.....

If I was a Carpenter, I'd be working on building an Ark. It started raining early Monday morning and it didn't stop until last night. It reallycame down...as they say in "Buckets".   I checked my rain gauge last night and there was 3 inches.

By Tuesday I was beginning to get cabin fever, so I suggested to Ms Pat that it would be a good day to go to a movie. We have been wanting to see "Blind Side" since we have heard so many great reviews about it.  We have a large Movie Theater just a few miles down the road from our place. So we went to the 11:30am early showing. The parking lot was a Lake. In order to get to a parking area we had to go through water that was so deep it came up and slightly over the bottom of our doors on the Honda CRV!.....part of the street was even closed.....WOW!

I will add to the GREAT reviews of this movie.  It was superb!! It's been a long time since I've seen a movie without any sex and violence.  It was well worth the price of admission and I would suggest you all see it.


A lot of you will recognize our friends Larry and Geri Gustafson, Owners and Operators of the Broken Arrow Campground just South of our place in the Black Hills. Many of you have stayed with them at their "superb" Campground.  I'm happy to report that they are parked right next to us down here at our place in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. They arrived Sunday afternoon and we are so glad to see them. 

Unfortunately, the next morning it started raining and continued for 2 days straight.  However, we were able to get some good "visit" time in. Now if it will just clear up so we can do something!   So far they are enjoying the Swimming Pool and the Hot Tub, along with the Exercise Room. Today we hope to get in a Hike in the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park next door.  I notice that the sky is CLEAR...Hallelujah !!

That's it so far this week and it's a GREAT WEEK!!!

It's 45 deg here this morning, dark, damp and we are freezing to death.  We have the Heat Pump and the little electric heater running. However, I notice that it is 12* up in the Black Hills.  Now that makes me feel warmer!!

Thanks for stopping by.  We would love to have you leave Comments below:

And, Mike, we love to leave comments for you. I'll bet the rain has slowed down your project just a wee bit! It's been years, it seems, since we've seen a movie, any movie, in a theater. The closest is 35 miles away in Sierra Vista. But our park has a great film library to borrow from, so we aren't without entertainment opportunities. All we have to do is find time to sit down and do nothing!

I've heard too that Blind Side is a great movie. We'll probably wait and see it on DVD though. I sure hope someone turns on the furnace down south before we head down there later this month!! Nice to see the blue skies though.
