science teacher

   This is for you know who.  Don't let him swing the grandkids either.

The weather was great today if you are in to high humidity and heat.  
I stayed home today and Rog went into town to get a tire for the car.  We have always had the right rear tire wear way faster than the others.  And with us heading into Canada soon he wanted everything in tip top shape.  He talked to the guy at the tire place and they looked into what the problem might be.  Rog has asked other places and they either didn't know the answer or didn't want to bother with the problem.  Well this guy worked on the situation for over two hours.  The way I understand it is the tire wigs and wonks wrong and he got the wig part right, but could only get the wonk part about 60% right.  I am hoping everyone understands that as much as I did.  The guy said to take it to a dealer and they have a fancy wig/wonk device they can put on the car that will fix it all up for a price, around $200.  We may look into that, but Rog wants to see how this works out first.  He is thinking it will save on tires and maybe we will get better gas mileage too because less drag on the tire.  The designer tires for this car are rather spendy at $300 each.  Who knew one should look into the size tires on your car before you purchase it.  I think we might have chosen a different car just because of the cost of the tires and they are really hard to find.  

Rog ran his test on the inside batteries and decided that they needed to be replaced before we head to Canada too.  Not sure when he is planning that trip.  It is rather spendy when he goes to town anymore.  LOL

We get sung to by the birds all day and it is so sweet and pretty and the can reach such high notes and then at night we hear from the baritone section of the choir, the tree frogs.  They have such low notes and it travels so far.  They are in the woods near the campground.  We are thinking they are the size of your thumbnail, but are so loud.  This is just a guess on our part because we have never seen one up close and personal.   

I am into cooking with limes now.  They are so good.  I make lime rice with cilantro, yum and Waldorf salad with lime juice and a bit of jest too.  

We are under a server T storm alert.  The park had peeps go around rig to rig advising to put up awnings and put stuff put away that is not nailed down.  So out we went.  The sky was bright and blue and clear above us as we were taking things down and off in the distance the blackest of skies was coming at us.  Oh boy!! got to love this.  One of our neighbors was gone and peeps were trying to put up their awning and really did not know what  they were doing.  So Rog went over in the wind and rain and lightning and saved the day and got it up.  The guy said he has had the new electric awning so long he forgot how to put up the old kind.  We are getting rain now and lightning is off in the distance and the wind is blowing. They say  they maybe 40 mph before this is over.
