George Carlin died. I'll always remember the skit he used to do about the four letter words. He was a genius. He'll be missed.
Hubs told me last night about the horrific death of Scott Coletta. He was a professional drag racer that had a terrible accident over the weekend. I won't link the video, but it can be found on You Tube, if you want to see it. I watched it and can't imagine how it felt for the people who were there watching. Hubs had a friend who was on the Coletta crew for many years and had heard lots of stories of their generosity. I'm sure this has stunned the world of professional drag racing.
It hasn't rained now for a week. We had a few sprinkles on Saturday night, but it has basically been dry. I noticed yesterday that maybe I should be giving my gardens some water. That seems weird with as much rain as we've gotten. I sincerely hope the big-shot climatologist at Iowa State is wrong. He claims we're in for a drought now. Hubs seems happier now that he's been able to get back and do some field work. Let's just hope the corn that's left in the fields does well, 'kay?
Thank you all for your comments. I've been bad lately about responding to them in any way, shape or form. I am reading them and am touched by many of your words of wisdom and kindess.
