Fires raging

I was intending on going to a Gospel Singing here at the apartments today, but I started sneezing and my eyes watering. I had the windows open as it was cool. The wind has really been blowing all day. I smelled something "cooking" and I looked to see if my apartment was on fire! I didn't have anything on, just the dryer going. Looked out side at the smoky view and I still thought someone was bar-b-q some ribs! I thought in this wind. When I turned the TV on and saw there were huge grass fires all around. Some people lost their houses, thirty to be exact. Pickup trucks burned, they couldn't get out of the way fast enough. Wind gust up to 60 mph. The weather has really been crazy this year. Had to close up the house, and just didn't feel like going. Also, my sugar dropped down to 77, I really felt bad. So-----I have been doing Genealogy this afternoon. I had an inquiry  as to one of my great grandfathers. Sure enough we are connected! It is always great when you find a link! Though her tree and mine, I was able to add a great deal of information. More and more I find relatives  that fought for the Confederate side in the Civil war. It is a hobby I have had for many years, I still find it enjoyable. I guess it is the sleuth in me!


  1. I get on a genealogy kick now and then and work nearly around the clock on it until I burn myself out. I have lots of relatives who fought on both sides of the War Between the States.

  2. Very sorry to hear about the fire so tragic for the people who lost their houses and cars.
    Your "nest" really looks nice. When the good weather arrives you can sit outside and enjoy the view.

  3. Love your new header picture. I have been watching the news about those fires. Just terrible. I wonder how close they are to Uvalde...
