It Rained Yesterday...
That was because it was across the street and between the first two houses on the next block! It started a fire in a palm tree! The fronds were falling on a neighbor's shed. Walter went over there and by the time he got there the neighbor, with the shed, was spraying his shed with a garden hose to keep it from bursting into flames.
We felt lucky that it wasn't our Mesquite in the front yard. It is about the same height as the palm tree.
Anyway, I never want lightening to strike any closer than that! Scary!!!!
I don't think that the color is going to stay yellow on the outside.
After I finished painting, I discovered that there is NO yellow in the shower curtain...
What I was thinking was yellow is more of an ochre color.
Speaking of shower curtains... I didn't bother to put stabilizing strips on the inside to hold the pleats in place.... And It Rained!!!
I had to re pleat the whole thing. Tessie will tell you that she did all of the work... She just handed me a couple of the pins...
Anyway, I will be putting strips on the back to keep it from coming un pleated this time. It is threatening to rain again to day. It's the middle of monsoon season here. The rules are, you don't cross flooded streets in your car and you don't neglect putting foundation strips on the backs of miniature curtains... I am pretty good at the street part and I will, from now on, be more careful to put the stabilizing strips on the backs of mini curtains.
I have to go spray the curtains some more. Then I will cut 1/2" strips to glue to the back of them.
See you tomorrow.
