Where are we?
Here we (her, not me) are dressed for the Houston Rodeo.
Per the Houston Chronicle, her boots cost $399.99, her purse is $170. That cute skirt, well it was $28:
"Tara Darby of the Neal Hamil Agency goes with a mainstream Western look in a straw hat by Justin, $19.99; Vintage Havana skirt, $28; and Lucchese square-toe boots, $399.99, from Cavender's. Her Skinny Minnie shirt, $19, is from Academy, and her Hipstirr pouch with rabbit, $170, is from Willow.

Adi Can . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Find the last rose of the winter
She will have to keep on looking. Most shrubbery, including roses, around here is supposed to be trimmed on Valentine's Day, or as close to February as possible.
That date is close to the last frost of the winter. When blossoms come on the newly trimmed bushes, it surely will be well past frost time.
This is what she was doing yesterday. Today we took a nice long morning walk. That tired her out so that today she again slept the afternoon away getting rested up. [I have a picture but this one from yesterday is nicer]
No ice here in or around this sidewalk cafe except for in the glasses and beer pitchers. Sister in Iowa said they might have freezing ice tonight. She won't move South though, she thinks our traffic is bad.
That is Mrs. Jim sitting by the closest tree on your left. I went back to get the camera from the car. You might have to click on the picture to see things better.
Picture taken at 6:00 PM, temperature was in the high seventies. I got cooler later this evening.
What did we eat you ask (remember the Jim Bunch eats a lot)? We each had a shrimp poboy with fries plus ice water with a lemon and a straw. Mrs. Jim had coffee too. Not quite heart healthy.
Change the subject. I'm going to switch to New Blogger pretty soon. It is getting harder and harder to post with the old one.
Any helpful comments or warnings. I know I should save my templates, anything else to do first?

It's June Bug! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . No, it's February Bug
I found this bug snuggled down in a chair at the Trisun Nursing Home living room in Corpus Christi, Texas. It looks soft and furry enough to pet!
It is a strange looking bug, maybe it's a rodent?
If I found this bug in my house, I would pet it. Surely it wouldn't bite.
It was Ghost! I found her here, in the snack room, getting ready for a nice little visit. And maybe a snack.
There is more to this cat 'tale.'
Most of the time Ghost stays in the administrative area or up front in the living room. When she strays into the bedroom wings she bears watching.
Often she will go into a room of a very sick resident and climb up on the person's bed. She will snuggle up to the resident as if to comfort that person.
Very often that resident will die soon afterwards while Ghost is still there. Somehow she can tell that the person is about to die and just wants to be there in case, as if she knows she might be needed.
One person she comforted had an unexpected heart attack and died. Somehow she knew beforehand.
I wasn't told how she got her name but I have a few guesses.
Both Ghost and Tiger, a Manx cat, were taken in as strays that came to the nursing home to hang around.
