MEANWHILE HERE IN THE HOOD

THE FLOOD WARNINGS HAVE PASSED
AND THE HEAT WARNING RETURNED
EXCEPT FOR THESE TEXAS LICENSE PLATES
IT IS SO HUMID 
I WOULD SWEAR I WAS IN LOUISIANA


THESE TWO THINK IT IS REALLY FUNNY
TO PUT ON LULU'S GLASSES


AND VARIOUS SUPER HEROES
HAVE BEEN SPOTTED 
AT THEIR HOUSE


I CAN SIT ON MY FRONT PORCH
AND ENJOY THE FIREWORKS SHOW
AT THE BOTANICAL GARDENS
AFTER THE SUMMER CONCERTS


THERE IS A TURKISH RESTAURANT
THE FLYING CARPET
WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE HOOD
YUMMY-LAMB


AND THE LATEST LOCAL CRIME WAVE
IS STEALING POTTED PLANTS
OFF PORCHES
SURELY--THEY CAN FIND SOMETHING LIGHTER
TO WALK OFF WITH 
THAN A POT FILLED WITH DIRT!
I WOULD GIVE YOU MY VERSION
OF AN APB FOR A PLANT
BUT I AM LAUGHING TOO HARD!


AND LAST--BUT NOT LEAST
OUR SWEET LUCY HAS TURNED A CORNER
AND ALLOWS ME TO KEEP HER
FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS AT A TIME
REFLUX AND COLIC
FINALLY GAVE US ALL A BREAK!


ENJOYING THE LAZY DAYS OF SUMMER WHILE

LIVING LIFE LARGE
HERE IN THE HOOD

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
