Retired at 54 to southern UT. BIG mistake. Oh, well, guess I'm stuck for a while. Husband and I cater to 3 cats. We also foster so it's rare that we don't have a spare cat or some kittens in the house. When we don't, it seems odd.

    The only thing my phone camera will catch is me playing with the foster kittens or the inside of my purse.

    When you get older and have friends or relatives that live alone, this is a very real worry. My sister is 75, lives alone and has just a few friends. So when I don’t hear from her or talk to her every few days, I do start to worry.

    I sent a message to the HOA person I’d been talking to. I told herit had to a REALLY bad golfer to have the ball go across the green, over Dianes’ house and across the street the truck.Apparently broken windows on the houses that have back yards facing the course happen all of the time. And, even if you see the person who hit the ball that broke your window, the person is not responsible for it. Those sliding glass doors are not cheap to replace. The HOA had to pass a thing saying people could up up those huge nets. Everyone here has block walls in the back, except the houses on the course. They’re not allowed to have any wall or fencing at all.

    About the cracked windshield in Brads’ old truck: someone at his work suggested a golf ball hit it. Part of the course is across the street behind Dianes’ house. I didn’t think that was it. Then, around 4PM yesterday, Brad was out looking at plants and watering some flowers and found a golf ball in the blue pot! It looks like Peggy was right.

    Speaking of heat: yesterday afternoon Brad was coming back from the mailbox and saw that the windshield on his truck was shattered. It’s a big, circular crack that goes all over the window. At first I thought it might be vandalism but if it was, the alarm would have gone off.I think the heat did it. It’s a 1997 Ford Ranger, so I guess after 27 yrs this weather finally did it in. Even though he has the windows cracked, it’s hot.The truck is still in excellent shape both under the hood and the body. A few years ago I took it to a local guy who does paint and repairs. I figured we’d have it repainted. I was surprised when he called and said it didn’t need new paint. He just buffed it all out, put on a new yellow racing stripe and the truck looked brand new. Brad has an appoint for tomorrow morning for a new windshield. I bought it for him that year and it had 27, 704 miles on it (I have the paperwork in a notebook where I keep track of repairs, etc) I couldn’t drive it because it’s a stick. I had to have my daughter drive it home. Brad was stationed up at Pt Mugu at the time and his 1985 Toyota Tacoma finally bit the dust. He took the train home to get the truck.

    I agree. People who don’t think climate change is a real thing have their heads in the sand. Southern CA (San Diego in particular) used to have a few hot days July through Sept. Temps were in the 90s. Now, it’s hotter longer. I’ve even noticed a change where we live now, in southern UT. (Hurricane)

    I think there are a few like this in his books, too. I think I have 4 or 5 of them from a bunch of years ago.
