Weather, Visiting and Getting To Know Big Herb

Rantoul, IL.

78 deg. hazy, NW wind @ 10 mph.

Forecast = Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 80s. North winds 10 to 15 mph.

Nothing exciting happening. The weather continues to be very hot, the grass and even the trees are starting to show signs of stress from lack of rain, and I would imagine that the crops in the fields are suffering too. The next 5 days or so, it's supposed to be a little cooler, but still in the upper 80's and they are forecasting possible rain tomorrow afternoon and evening.

Jim and Roland have been doing a lot of visiting. Linda and Louise don't know what they can find to talk about for hours on end, but it seems that they never run out of things to discuss. ; ) I personally have heard them talk about everything from weather to RVs to crops in the fields to airplanes to travel plans.

Last night, Roland and Louise brought some hamburgers over here and Jim cooked them on the grill. That, along with potato salad, a little chili, some chips and deviled eggs, made for a very nice meal that was topped off with some ice cream for desert. : )

Being that there hasn't been much going on around here, Big Herb and I have had a good opportunity to get to know one another. He's hasn't been traveling much lately because Louise has been having some medical problems and needed to close to her doctors. In fact when they leave here, they have to go back to Forest City, NC so she can have some more test.  He's hoping that soon she'll be feeling better and they can travel more. He'd really like to head out West for awhile, but right now that doesn't seem possible. : (

Maybe next year.

I don't have a clue of what's going on today. Probably not too much.

Did you know that Oak trees are struck by lightning more than any other tree?
