LOL! We'll get along just fine, msev. I never wear high heels so I wont borrow your heels and you wont borrow my moccasins.

Actually, I did wear 4-inch high heels 40 years ago. Wore them to work every day for 15+ years because I didnt know better. Luckily, they never affected my feet but, in my 50s, I decided to wear flats and, OMG, did my feet feel so much better.

A huge storm blew through Houston in the middle of the night. My side of the street always loses power when that happens. The others side of the street must be on a different power grid because it never loses power. I'm always glad for my neighbors, but it's somewhat irritating when you have no power (and no a/c or ceiling fans in 90-degree temps) for hours.

Fortunately, I bought a bunch of Sharper Image battery-operated (they also come with an electrical cord) personal fans years ago and use them whenever my electricity goes out. Having those fans on my nightstand was the only reason I was able to sleep last night.

Wasn't it wonderful?! We got 2 inches at my house!!

We had someone's dog come up under the porch and try yo get into the house every time thunder hit. Broke my heart to see her so scared and freezing from the rain. Tried to call the number on her tag but it was no good.
I can't even imagine one of my baby's out in that kind of weather.😥

It rained here almost all day yesterday and now it's rolling in again. It was heavy yesterday and we lost the cable for a couple of hours. But, I was so happy to watch the rain. It's been such a long time. One of the lakes around here is down 22 feet because of the drought.

I know this will sound strange but I can almost hear the grass, trees and shrubs giggling with the rain. Talk about a resurrection...it happens when it rains in the DFW area. The boxwood is out of control with laughter.

Doesn't sound strange at all. I can hear my trees and grass frolicking!

Our precious Medina lake is all but gone. I think it's got maybe 2 feet left. We were there a few weeks ago and walked all the way across. It's going to take a massive flood of almost bible proportion to bring it back.😥

Just a quick update - still trying to deal w/the huge mess this house is, tons of phone calls, paperwork, one of my best friends had a heart attack/event (doing really well fortunately) and spent several hours visiting her today in the hospital. Trying to call Social Security to see if they push back the date my paperwork for my disability app. is due (not that they'll approve anyway....) - on eternal hold. I'm on my own and just the stress of so much to do is overwhelming, I put off the brain-work stuff and try to do a little cleaning, organizing, etc. (or just lay down). Not meaning to complain, I WILL survive this if SSA cuts me some slack. Hope you all are well, I pop in to read up on folks (haven't posted much at all obviously), but it does give me a break to read up at least, I envy some of you - just want to be somewhere calm - Some great folks on here!!

I'm new at this and heels currently attract my attention. Will buy flats and different styles.

I'm so sorry, dear Flamingo. I've been praying for you.

Camper, I hope the rains brought you some of this cold weather. Houston is having record-breaking low temps for this time of year: 50s at night and 60s during the day. In my area the temp never got above 65 today. It's wonderful to be able to keep the garden windows open 24/7 and keep the back door open all day long.
