Cloudy Sky Watch Friday 8/15/08

 


Sorry this is a day late. I seem to have more Odd Shots than I do Sky Watches. LOL It has been cloudy here most of the week with some much needed rains. I took this one on Wednesday afternoon. It has been a good week for me. We were off a day and a half at work due to carpet installation. Yeah! It won't count against our vaction time which is a good thing. It looked like my desk had been hit by a hurricane when I returned on Friday! But I think I have it all back together now.

On Wednesday, I met mom and my Aunt Pearl for lunch because the next day, the 14th was Aunt Pearl's birthday. It was also my best friend Penny's birthday. I took this one photo among many on the way to pick up Rhett from school as well as on our way out and about afterwards. I know this isn't one of my best, but I had fun cropping all of them on Picasa. I had too much work to catch up on yesterday to post it. Again I apologize.

Upon carefully looking at this photo as I uploaded it, I thought the blue sky reminded me of a horse. What do you think?

On Thursday, mom and I went to lunch again at a county buffett called the Country Buffet that serves veggies, the best fried squash and fried green tomatoes. Then we went to see my Uncle Frank who had the brain cancer surgery back in early part of June. His chemo pills are making him so sick he cannot keep anything down. He did not look well. He has lost his hair, but not any weight. Still I am glad for the visit even if he did not look like he felt like sitting up in the chair. He gives such good hugs.

Elise is doing well after her hysterectomy. She got to go home mid day the day after her surgery. Thanks for asking about her, Abby, Anne, Penny and all the rest. We will go see her Sunday evening.

We went to the Speakeasy, a pub, last night per Rhett's request. I did have a night shot I could have used here, but I will save it for next Friday's Sky Watch unless I find something better... It turned out to be another photo opp for me so I was excited. I got another Odd Shot too. But I am not giving away any of the details.

Hope you have a great weekend. If you would like to participate in Sky Watch Friday, please go to the following....
