*Tropical Storm Dolly is in the Gulf. I check on Dolly and worry about Texans and Mexico.

*Verbena, the Very Attractive Toad in the Courtyard, moved from the Verbena pot to the Pursulane pot. She asks that I not speak, photograph or even think about her. Toad privacy is a big issue.

*I'm busy today with Preacher Coffee, Session meeting and etc.

*LD and I will fry an egg on the brick walkway soon. Photos to follow.

*My hairdresser said she has her face shaved when she gets a facial. Please explain this to me. She isn't talking about extraneous hair-age but her entire face. I cannot figure this out.

*I am making hand puppets with felted wool. These puppets look very silly.

*LD is off to specialty art high school in 13 days. I am not handling this well.

*LS moved to his University apartment. LLS commented he is young (a junior) to do this and she is correct. He called at 10:30 pm. last night to tell me his electric stove does not work and wanted to call the emergency apt. number. I suggested no one would come so late. He argued with me because I know nothing. I recall the days when I was the wikipedia and source of important information in the Universe.

*I am enjoying Summer but wilting from the dreadful heat.

*The kittehs are busy with bottle soccer, string play, popping each other in the head with clawy paws and naps.

*I'm listening to John Grisham's THE APPEAL audio book. I like unabridged versions of audio books. I'm on CD 7 halfway through the book. The story is compelling with all the classic Grisham totally good or totally evil characters, references to Mississippi towns and plot twists. The audio book reader is one of my favorites because he gets Southern accents right. I hope like the dickens Grisham's tale of bought and sold judges is fiction. The interference of outside groups to change the Courts to favor certain verdicts terrifies me.

*If you were here, I'd give you sweet iced tea and be glad to see you.


Grace to you,

St. Casserole

If I were there, I'd gladly take your sweet tea, and ask to watch the egg fry.

And I would drink my sweet tea while giving chin skritches to the kittens and have hopes to get one tiny glimpse of Verbeanea.
Thinking of you, Texas, mexico and other Gulf Coasters alike....
Here we go again....

Did you get a new washer? Your hair looks darker in the picture. Did you do something to it?

Will you take a picture of the egg before Sister gets to it?

cheesehead said...

I'm sorry, but the thirteen days stopped me in my tracks. I feel your pain. (((((StC)))))

I'm sure you wrote many interesting things after that, but I can't read them right now. Screen blurry...

DogBlogger said...

I want to see the puppets.

Re: your hairdresser, some people are really hard-core about their exfoliation.

And thanks for the sweet tea.

Mary Beth said...

I'm a bad Southerner and cannot drink sweetea. But I'll take some icewater if you have it. And hug you hard for your LD and other things.

Cathy said...

Let's have a fry an egg day picture.
Yesterday would have been a good day, but it might have been a poached egg. Today - fried.

Sue said...

Sweet tea here please and thank you. I had no idea about toad privacy issues. I have learned something new today already.

Presbyterian Gal said...

Why thank you for the sweet tea *she said petting all the kittehs*

Let's hope the only dollys to be played with will be your felt hand puppets.

Love your decor, especially the new washer. Until now I never noticed how much you resemble my Aunt Frances.

Up here on our end of the coast we are just hoping to get a little rain out of Dolly. What a difference a few miles makes. Praying for Jan (Yearning for God) and our other neighbors to the south.

Ruby said...

Oh, sweetie, I'm glad Verbena and the kitties are giving you some entertainment.

If you think his accent is wonderful - listen to THE LAST GIRLS by Lee Smith, read by the author. I just finished it. You could cut her accent with a knife!

We shoulda fried eggs yesterday here - big thunderstorm last night cooled it off - just a tad(and temporarily).

I would love to watch the toad and kittehs and drink the sweet tea.

Yes please to sweet tea. Next time you drop my place I'll have to offer lemonade tea. Sweet tea with a couple scoops of lemonade mix stirred into the pitcher. Stole the idea from expensive coffee shop chain.

Singing Owl said...

I wish I could send you some cooler temps. Prayers for you and LD too. Mmmm, sweet tay! Makes me think of my aunts in Texas in the days when they were all still with us.

Hi St. Casserole! I like to read your blog, so to let you know (and to get another post out of you) I tagged you for a meme on my blog FilmAching!

I don't comment very often, but I do love to swing by when I can. I find your blogging refreshing :)
