Severe Weather Hits Again

Hey there again, James here. We've been sitting through some bad weather all day. But, you know, we are thankful it was only rain, thunder and lightening. Some of our Texas neighbors and some north of us didn't  have it too easy. They had straight line winds 70 mph that tore through their towns and took down trees, power lines, destroyed homes, etc. Our prayers goes out to them. Sure hope none of you were hit too hard. 
 I took a few pictures, but couldn't get too much with all that bad lightening. It was some fierce, striking a gas well and setting it on fire. It was dark outside and boy did it rain! You don't have to tell me to come in outta the rain, especially this much! Hahahaha!

Our back walks flooded

This is the neighbors drive to the left of us. Her house is a bit higher than ours and she had flooding.

This is the right side and our drive also flooded. If you click on this picture, you might see our garbage
cans floating down the street. Today is trash day.

Our front walkway flooded. Yep, the entire walk!

 Remember I showed you a picture of our neighbors house that sit down the hill from us, where the tree limb fell from the storms the other day. This is her front yard starting to fill.

This is in the park across the street. Boy did it flood. The street also, but I didn't get that it started back
up and I got the hell outta dodge!

All of these pictures are of the park. They came out to do a little work. Good time huh?

We didn't get any rain last summer, but we are now. We prayed for it, so we have to take what comes with it. We are thankful for it in so many ways. We will keep you in our thoughts and pray that you all get through any bad weather you're having. Ya'll please take care and be save!

Wednesday's Quote

Hi to all, hope you are having a nice day. Loretta sends her love to everybody. This quote (of courage) I found for today is one she uses all the time. I hope it holds some meaning for you too.

Good Ole' Southern Dinner

Good evening lovely people, It has been a spell since I posted. You see, we had some problems after that storm that came through. The computer went to acting up, I couldn't get on the web. Course, you know they are closed over the weekend, so I had to wait. After they fussed over it over the phone, they finally gave up and sent a fellow out here to make the repairs. 

Loretta is doing a little better. Losing her friend like that was hard especially since she'd just talked to her. Lord, you never know when its your time, huh? My mother-in-law, bless her, has really been taking good care of us. This was our Sunday dinner she cooked. Loretta wanted greed beans with potatoes, (I think she can eat them every day) and Greek chicken. My mother-in-law made the best sweet tea, I had to give her a big bear hug!

She tried following Loretta's recipe but ended up making it her way. (I knew she would do it when she kept fussing) but, it was still good.  I wanted a pear salad, but I forgot to tell her I'd eaten the last of the cheese. See how I got my salad. Hahahaha! See where Loretta get her humor!

 Nothing fancy, just good ole eatin'! The old fashioned hot water cornbread was really tasty!

I added some creamy dressing to the salad and cracked some pepper

Then, it was on!

  When I asked granny where's the dessert, she held up her little finger. Hahahaha! That old gal kills me! Anyway, dinner was finger-lickin' good, but I show miss Loretta's desserts!

  Ya'll keep Loretta in your thoughts, it helps more than you know!
Hope you have a blessed evening. I'm signing off now, take good care!
