It has been a while…

Time has flown since the last time I wrote on my blog.  I’ve missed you all that are kind enough to visit and comment.  I hope you all have been well.  I could update you on all the issues I am dealing with and touch on the last items I mentioned in my last post but I’d rather not at this time.  I may type up a proper follow up to that post but not now.  Instead…

Here is the latest pic of Harley and I.

We were outside checking out the garden when it decided to pour what seemed like gallons of rain all at once.  Since it was really hot we agreed that playing in the rain was okay this time.

Some flowers are blooming.

Just a few random touches of color that make me happy as I walk around my yard.

image

Of course Harley is here looking good as ever.

Not to long ago we were able to get some plumbs from our tree.  In all got about 4 dozen plumbs off this tree.  Not to bad.

This guy, who lives in Amarillo TX with my brother-in-law, may end up in my home.  His name is Pepe and he’s a white capped pionus.  He may stay in Amarillo so we’ll see.

Not sure how much you know about the weather here in Houston lately but aside from today’s downpour it’s been really wet.  Flooding in fact.  My yard still has standing water.  Not good for the fruit treats but the mosquitoes love it.  I think they are having their best year ever.  The frogs too.

image

Due to all the rain this guy decided to come say hello.  Unfortunately he’s not a nice guy and had to leave this world.  I’m sure his family misses him.  They have my condolences.

So that was an update of sorts.  I leave you woth this goofy shot.   I’ve been leaving more and more of the orange peel on the orange so Harley can have the fun of getting to the tasty center.  Supposed to help keep his mind sharp.  Not sure if it’s working.

Hope you all have been well.  Take care.  Now to read up on all I’ve missed from my friends here.

Update

I hope everyone had the best holidays. Ours were not very eventful. Spent time with family and friends. What else could be better?

I don’t want to whine about work because I am grateful to be employed but it’s gotten stressful and I might not always handle the stress so well. We are on the verge of being sold so everyday there is a million different things to stay on top of. Glad to have a four day break though.

Also, worried that if the new company takes over where or not they keep me. I just want everyone else to be okay. I know if it goes down that way I’ll be fine. I hope.

Decided to try and move around more by riding my bike. I really hate it because it’s work but getting used to it.

I can’t wait to get so into it that I’m posting about it on FB all the time!

Take care and I’ll blog more soon.

Tropical Tuesday

Some of you have already seen these if you follow Harley on instagram or Twitter.  Still worth seeing again and sharing with you all, I think.  :)

Harley will get on my shoulder and grab water when I’m watering the garden.  Normally when I make it “rain” he hates it but this day he was eager and excited to get wet.  If only the phone took better pics.  Still not so bad, right?

Hope you all are well.

Sincerely,
Jim and Harley

What’s Been Going On?

So many things to tell you but for now I won’t overwhelm you.

So many things will be changing for me in the near future.

Soon to be living alone. I don’t think I’ve ever lived alone. Might be refreshing. Then again Harley will be there to keep me company.

May be changing jobs soon. Which could be a relief because the Justice Dept may be investigating the owners of the apartment community I work at.

So a major change in life and lifestyle is coming. I wish I could see into the future to see if it all works out for the best.

On top of this my niece’s husband was killed in a motorcycle accident. He leaves behind her and 5 young kids. Then my oldest sister has a grim diagnosis with her brain cancer.

How much more can you take before you pop?

Then again you focus on the positive and keep moving forward.

Hope everyone is happy and safe.

Talk to you very soon.
