I apologize for my absence, sister, but after you gave Gustav such a thorough tongue lashing, he sent his brother Ike over to avenge him. Luckily, in typical male fashion, Ike got lost along the way and refused to stop for directions while visiting Cuba. Jan, I hope Texas will forgive you.
Meanwhile, on the reading front, I've been remiss in going anywhere to find the next book on The List, American Pastoral. I am hoping to make it to the library next week to proceed with the New Classics challenge. Until then, I'll leave you with some pictures of some new friends we made while hanging outside after Gustav.I had to buy another hummingbird feeder--I've counted eight out there at one time.Our red tailed hawk, keeping an eye on the neighborhood.
