SkyWatch Friday (my twenty-nineth) -- For my friends up north -- Have you had your car read lately? #017
I just though you all might want to see what our Sky looks like around here. All of the moisture in these clouds is headed north where they are getting plenty. Al Gore, please hurry up there, they are needing you!
The top picture was taken from the St. Luke Tower across the street from the Houston Medical Center. My cardiologist,
Dr. Krajcer (link), has his office on the top, 27th floor. I go every six months for tests, this time it was a stress EKG, a Peripheral Vascular Test, and Lab (blood) tests.
I will get my results Monday. No major problems expected but I took myself off one of my cholesterol meds as my muscles were deteriorating and painful.
Midwesterners, rent one of these if you get to Barcelona (Spain)

These little cars for two were all over Barcelona. I don't know how the audio works. It could be GPS directed, 'key on the map numbers' or dial 1-900-555-5555.
Check em out if you go. I'd pick a day like we did, rain might be troubles. In more ways than one.
What Midwesterners do for fun
Looks like they are all watching the little fish swim near this Duluth (Minnesota) peer.
That is my sister, Lois, waving to us from the front white pad. (behind the guy with the red coat sitting in back of the people on the same white pad--if you were having trouble finding her)
Wait, that was a ship way out there! Oh yes, these ships come through to the port several times a day. Not quite like Houston where one or more comes every few minutes up our ship channel.
Either way, both these activities are free so what the hey? Why not. Kids love it too!
NOTICE: You are not welcome in Houston and please do not come if you do not look us up while you are here!
Now back to the fish watching. The ships are gone for a while.

Adi Can --- Find red things for 'Ruby (Red) Tuesday'
The new service road is down the street at the end of the cul-de-sac. I don't think these neighbors appreciate it very much but we sure do. The new path for large trucks going down to the lake or to the sewer plant should not be going past our house any more. Or breaking our curb at the driveway when they made a wide turn.
These Lily-of-the-Nile (Agapanthus) plants (care and feeding link) are blooming again this year in our front yard. Adi can find blue as well as red.
On the left is daughter, Karen (link, her car). Mrs. Jim and I will be new grandparents around the end of July. BP is ready for her new little sister or brother. Karen was having printer problems and came up to print some invitations she needed to get mailed. BP came also, we had a really nice afternoon visit.
[The computer desk is sitting at the back wall of my office. One of these days I will show you more of it.]
I found these tow and their dogs walking across the back yard. I took the picture from my porch. Many will recognize the setting. (super large picture)
[Bentwater golf course rules say not to walk or anything else on the golf course or the cart paths. Anytime. Not many get arrested even though a lot are using it like these ladies did, before the golfers get to our hole # 11 (par five).]
I found these two last red and not so red items.
