Rained most of the day Saturday, too. Total of about 3.5 inches for the two-day period. Moody skies in Seminole on Saturday morning: I had fun at the birthday party Saturday afternoon. Had eight pages in Sunday’s paper. Very tired now.

And there are apparently three of them, all connected by tunnels. I say it took a little too long for area residents to notice that the hill was geometrically[...]
Thanks, everyone, for your comments on my last entry. That was a pretty heartfelt one, I think. Thursday afternoon, I covered four (count ‘em) softball games in our county, and got some of my best pics so far (in my humble opinion).
