Wonderful, refreshing, blessed rain. So glad you got a 1/2 inch. And cooler temps. I think we got warmer at 95 degrees! And it is getting very dry again. No rain in last 3 weeks and long-range forecast sees none. :( At least the temps are starting to drop.

yes! tomorrow 5 degrees cooler than today. *whew!* Thursday 15 degrees cooler than today. rains in the forecast. i don't really need it to rain right now but oh well... 5 more days of dry weather and i could get all the bean gardens picked through. i don't think i'm going to get that much of a break.

I’ve got my 2 little granddaughters for the week. Monday we had a birthday party. Tuesday they helped me work sheep, worming them, then we went to the grocery store. Yesterday we went to the Lufkin zoo. It is a small jewel nestled in the tall Piney Woods.

Entrance to the zoo.

A steam engine. Probably used in logging back in the day.

A shady walkway. The whole zoo is shady, pleasant on a hot day.

An observation deck, there are several scattered around. They provide a cool place to sit down, let kids run around and play and watch the animals.
