Labor Day was no weekend...

While most folks got to enjoy a long weekend, here at Casa Monkeywrangler, I was manning sickbay, as DH came down Sunday with some evil virus.  He is still pretty wiped out, but has improved a little today.  He was running temps of 101* to 103*+, and I even dragged him off to the ER, because one of his docs said if the temp went over 101* (DH runs a normal temp of 97*), to take him in.

Now this morning, I was awoken by a strange sound, that of water flowing, but outside!  Yes!  It finally rained here, not just somewhere in the Metromess.  I'd guess we got at least half an inch, maybe more.  It was very welcome too, as it hasn't really rained here for 2 months (unusual after such a wet spring).  The lakes are still full, which is good, but the ground was quite dry, leading to major cracking in the yard.  Hopefully this rain will help ease the situation.

And because I was paying attention to my junk emails, I spotted a deal on the photos taken during the Hotter N Hell ride.  I spent quite a bit of time finding all the pics of me, and when the coupon showed up on a 6hr flash sale, I opted to buy the whole digital file.  It even came with a 20$ credit for prints at Shutterfly.  So you can see what it was like, here is one of the better pics.
At Iowa Park TX.


  1. Cool picture. Hope you don't catch that virus. It sounds awful.

  2. Hope your hubs is finally recovering! Has anyone else fallen ill to it? It sounds perfectly dreadful!
    Stay well, and now that it's finally rained here too, everything's suddenly growing like crazy... lawn sprouted a few inches overnight! Bleah!
