Mom tried to post something but had errors - could not get it back when I tried to Edit it. Any how I hope this will be posted. Belle just called weather and Temp. was 103 degrees ! at 4/15 PM. Talk about hot and dry! Supposed to be a chance of rain next few days - we will see. Not much going on as you can imagine Hot as it is. I did go into trailer earlier to look at outlets with no power and noticed in small print "this outlet protected by GFI". So went into bath area and checked GFI plug there and it was tripped. Pushed button in to reset it and it worked! Called Dealer as there were no reset buttons on the two outlets in kitchen and found out they were wired in with one I had reset. Checked them and they were all on so that mystery solved. This may still leave you all mystified. I plan to mow in morning before it gets warm. It is supposed to be only 95 the next few days - real cold spell here. Sure hope we get some of that rain - only 9 inches behind.

Belle did call dentist about cavity she found and they said to come in at 9:15 so were fortunate to that taken care of. Not much more to write about. Mom has decided not to write today so that is all for now - Dad

Lufkin Homeplace August 14

Belle Here again:I have been trying to get Dad to blog, but he will not do it so I thought I would try. I ready enjoy reading the blogs and to know what everyone else is doing. It sounds as Christine is really busy getting her business going. Good luck.
We had a good weekend even if we didn't do anything. It has really been hot here. 100 today and they say 102 tomorrow. No rain in sight. We are suppose to go camping this weekend. Probably won't go till Thrusday. We always have a nice club house so the heat shouldn't be any problem. We will go out and eat together on Sat. after our meeting. I always bring food already prepared so I don't have to cook in the trailer when it is hot like this. I went to the doctor today about the brusing and bleeding on my legs and arms. I still think it is the medicine I am taking but he doesn't seem to think that is it. Anyway he said to taper off of it and see if it helps. If not, I will have to see my family doctor. I think it is odd that it got worse only after he increased my medince. The information they sent me with my medicine said that is one of the rare side affects, so we shell see. We enjoyed talking to both Mike and Jo last week, All so talked with Onva in Ok. and with Gladys in Oregon. Got the coupon from Jo today. Your yarn really looks nice. You are getting good at it.. I will see if Daddy wants to add to this, if not I will sign off. Mom

Not much to add. It has been a long hot summer - about 9 inches low on rain to date. We are not too busy in yard - can't work out for very long. Grass manages to keep growing enough to need mowing every week which is not too hard to do. Hope belle's getting of Neurontin helps and it is not too hard to get off it. Looking forward to getting out with trailer. Hope we can do more this fall when it cools down - we hope. All for now - Dad
