After a 60 day absence, there was a gully washer followed by more rain, totaling about 2.5 inches.  We needed it, as when it stopped raining, it stopped cold turkey.  So the wet day, courtesy of the Gulf and a cool front to override, was a blessing.  Tomorrow returns to August.


Radiator is in the back of the truck.  It still needs to get in the front of the truck.  Been a number of hitches.  Today was the rain.


Life has been a little slow, but that is typical for August.  I did get to roast a batch of pork chops today, the cool weather permitting use of the oven.  I wish I had had other things thawed out, but alas.  There’s still plenty in the freezer to thaw and eat.  I’m not going to starve any time soon.


Coconut cream pie in the fridge.  It will hold me over until BlueBell returns to the shelves at the first of the month.  They are shipping it in from Alabama, as the local creamery isn’t ready for production yet.  But they are starting with the original market first.  I am expecting riots until everyone gets their fix.
