The sky just opened up and gave us a summer shower.  An almost unknown treat for me.  It cooled it down from 101 degrees to 98 degrees and I can smell the rain.  I don’t have a rain hat so I’m waiting out this little flash flood.  The streets are already running with water several inches high in the gutters but driving will be easy still.

Who says it never rains in Sunny California, well seldom but it does occasionally rain and today is the day for my little spot.  Well here comes the thunder so I’m signing off before my system goes down.

Soggy good wishes to you all.

Kraken

This Massive Kraken Was Spotted Underwater In A Japanese Harbor

Opportunities to see giant squid in open waters are extremely rare. Although these mammoth sea creatures live in all of the world’s oceans, they prefer to make their homes in deep waters, out of sight of divers. Akinobu Kimura lucked out in his chance encounter with a giant squid in the relatively shallow waters of Toyama Bay in Japan. He was even able to capture it on video.

Kimura says that his interest in the creature pushed aside any fear, despite the squid’s bursts of ink and its attempts to ensnare him in its enormous tentacles. Although the squid did not injure the diver, he said that the squid’s strong suckers caused him some pain. Click to read CNN article

While the 12-foot-long squid seems huge, it actually is a fairly small representative of its species; giant squid can grow to as long as 43 feet.

It looks like it will make the 110 mark around 2 pm today with only a small area of cloud cover.  Gonna be one of those gawd awful days.  I’m on pet duty so I’ll go over and let the 3 dogs in with the 2 cats later this afternoon for a couple of hours.  I can’t nap during that indoor break because the dogs may chase the new cat and I can’t let the cat out cuz it might not come back in since it doesn’t know me…………..sigh

I’ve already been over this morning for the AM  run and everyone was fine.  Treats and water check for the dogs and a morning nosh for the cats, then dogz back out and catz stay in.

PET DUTY IS NOT REALLY FUN!

Even the bugs are coming out to crawl because of the heat!

After London, Alexandria, and San Francisco today, I too have no more words. ~~dru~~

I Have No More Words

What is going on in the world?

Every day, I wake up to tragic news.

My heart is broken for all the lives lost.

For all those who have suffered and are suffering.

I don’t know what else to say.

I have no more words.
