AJ, AZ High 112 Low 88
I am the first person to admit that I do not like bugs or crawly or slithery things.
So my heart just about didn’t survive the other night. I took Scooter out for her final time before bed. As we were coming back into the house she went into hunt mode and was pulling on the leash to get to something on our sidewalk. It was really dark and my flashlight is weak, so I at first thought it might be a lizard. But then it moved and it was not a lizard. I screamed and hauled Scooter back away from it. I have no idea what kind of snake it was because I didn’t get a very good look at it but it was only about 9 or 10 inches long. But it was definitely a snake. Needless to say, I am really cautious when I go out the door now but we haven’t seen any sign of it since. Thank goodness.
This interesting looking building is on our drive to the surgeon’s office. It is the Viad Tower which was built in 1991. The tower was originally built for the Dial Corporation and the building is supposed to look like a bar of dial soap. I guess my imagination isn’t that good because I don’t see the resemblance.
Maybe from this angle.
Nope, I still don’t think it looks like a bar of soap.
Scooter has been impatiently waiting for Jim to be able to take her rabbit hunting again. I have been trying to fill in for him but it’s just not the same.
Not a cloud to be seen. This was taken Sunday morning about 5:45 when Scooter and I went out rabbit hunting. Pretty amazing considering the clouds we’ve had for the last couple of days. That little white spot is the moon.
And the heat is back – 112 today and tomorrow. Definitely an indoor movie day after the doctor’s appointment.
The drain came out today. Not sure who is more excited about that – Jim, me or Scooter. Doc says he is healing nicely but he still needs to give it a couple more weeks before he does anything too strenuous. We also decided that the next surgery will be scheduled for the middle of November.
Now we have to sit down and figure out when we can get out of here.
