Tropical Storm Alex

The first tropical storm of the season has formed and may be worth watching as July approaches. We have been busy since our little trip to Arkansas, cleaning quartz crystals and sifting the dirt from Crater of Diamonds State Park for our little diamond.....yet to be seen. Sifting half teaspoon of gravel at a time takes some patience.

This week we help Raymond and Jo (my sister and her husband) finalize the preparations for their July 4'th party and reunion at the ranch. Lots of decorating, cleaning and fixing up for the event which is well attended and appreciated by the whole family.

We plan to move the motor home to the ranch this week to make it a bit easier on us and to allow my sister to "lock us in" in case things get hectic....only kidding Jo.

We have to be finished by Saturday, July 3 since it is my 63'rd birthday and we are going to Lake Charles for the evening to a Commodore's concert and some overeating at the casino. Hey, I could win some bucks too if luck follows us.

Yesterday, after an exhausting search in 3 states, I found an antique claw foot bathtub...about a block from our home...DUH. We gave one away years ago but this one is larger and a bit heavier than ours was. The date on the bottom reads 01-01-1910. I will paint the exterior and Shari will plant flowers in the tub. The plan is to attach a shower head for watering for visual effect.

Until next time... Be Safe and Have Fun!

The claw foor tub with the shower should be a great conversation piece, especially as I understand that you haven't had but 1-1/2" of rain.

We have had plenty here, so sorry I didn't FedEx you any.

Have a great birthday and 4th. at the ranch. Happy Trails, Penny, TX
