A Cold Morning In Tucson


It was difficult to read the thermometer on the wall out on the pool deck this morning when I took Eva out for her early morning run and necessities call, but I think it was indicating 40 degrees (F.)

Although this low temperature did not seem to bother Eva at all, it spurred me to hurry her along and get us back inside.

Now I am comfortably seated in front of the keyboard, but find I have nothing noteworthy to report here in the blog.

I was planning to write about my opinion of celebrities, and celebrity in general. But then I realized I know very little about the subject.

Oh well . . .

I heard a TV news person announce that this weekend is a good time to go out, look up in the sky, and see tons of shooting stars -- and I wondered when the term 'shooting stars' will die its deserved death and the proper term, meteors will be used. But I realize that many people (mainly Christians) still believe the phenomenon to actually be 'stars' falling to Earth.

There is to be a full moon at the time, which will affect the meteor sightings.

Wouldn't you know it.

Did You Know . . .?

The airplane Buddy Holly died in was the "American Pie." (Thus the name of the Don McLean song.)
