This Month Is Nearly Over


 I managed to get a few snapshots this morning, starting with some just before dark of the full moon and Venus above two saguaro cacti. I do not have my Adobe Elements photo manipulating software installed on this computer so I will wait until I am at home this coming Saturday to prepare them for inclusion in the blog. If, that is, they turn out okay.

One of the winning Powerball tiakets was sold here in Arizona. It was not sold to me. I know this because I stopped buying Powerball tickets earlier this year when the price went up from one dollar to two dollars. One hundred and four dollars is way too much for me to afford to spend on gambling in a year's time, Besides, what would I do with all that money if I were to win?

I suppose I could just give it all to my immediate family. Now there's an idea.

Additional text (if any occurs to me) goes here . . .
