Today was quite a bit like yesterday, plus going to church.
The rain has continued, and is welcome. I know: this is 'just talking about the weather,' but during a drought, rain is more important than usual.
The lawn of someone I talked with last week was so dry, the weeds were withering. Here in town, our weeds had been doing okay, but now the grass is starting to get green, too. Which means that it'll soon need mowing.
I've been told there was some excitement near our home recently. Someone I knew was arrested for stealing from the Alexandria Wal-Mart. And apparently he'd been living in a house near ours. It was a rental place, and the last two sets of tenants had lifestyles that encouraged the police to visit at intervals.
I'm not making excuses: if he's guilty, he must deal with the consequences. Still, it's a sad day for the guy and his family. I also hope that the stolen property was recovered.
Small town America is a wonderful place to live, but it's not paradise. Still, I'd rather live here.
