R.I.P. Fire Fighters

This was such a horrible tragedy! What a horrible loss for the families of these brave young men. R.I.P.

We had a little bit more rain today but it is not nearly enough. I hope we get more as the days pass.

Didn't do anything much today. When I took Fred on first outs I noticed there was a pool of water in the awning. Great! I thought it had enough of a slant but no. So I took down the hanging plant to lesson the weight. Well that water sure made that thing heavy and I got soaked. No telling what was all in that water so I came in and jumped right in the shower.

And that was the big deal of today until it cooled down around 5:30 pm.

Good Night All


  1. You didn't think the awning water counted as your daily shower. That might have been fun to watch.

  2. such a sad sad sad thing... 19 young men... the best... freak accident they say...

    bugs were in the awning water .. bad bugs

  3. Good morning John,
    No all I could think of was to wash it off in a real shower. I bet you would have loved to see it! You would be amused by my nonsense all day long I'm sure.

    Hi Carolyn,

    Yes very sad. I feel for the families and friends of these young people.

  4. Hi Jo,

    It is a terrible loss of life. Really makes me hope that the fund they have started to assist the families of these men keeps growing. I did read this morning it was at $121K but perhaps it will continue to help with their final expenses.

    Yesterday the smoke from the fire was so thick we could not see the Mingus Mountain in back of us nor the mesas out front. Just a thick grey cloud all over.

  5. Hi JMD,
    That fire is massive. Good to hear about the fund to help these young families.

    I remember when we had the big fire here how hard it is to breath. Just try to stay indoors with the a/c running hope we get lots of rain that is lightening free.

  6. The fire is such a tragedy and the loss of lives make it even more so.

    Hey, why did you shower after the water from the awning did it for you? '-)
