What a long time it's been and with so little to say lately....

I am blessed that my life is good.  It isn't mind-blowingly great lately, but all in all it's pretty darned good.  Today it sleeted/hailed in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.  I had been downtown for breakfast, taken an hour or two drive around  the area south and a little east of downtown, made it back to the place I got a new car alarm, had them make an adjustment and traversed back through downtown on my way home.  The entire trip of 3 hours-ish was filled with cool crisp air and loads of sunshine.  Plenty of clouds, some looking like they were rain-ladened but all in all, a beautiful day.  As I crossed the pass from Hollywood back to the SFV, I noticed the streets were wet.  It had rained and rained quite a lot in the Valley.  I stopped by a store that is relocating and having a SALE (say it ain't so) and stopped in.  While there I looked out the expansive front windows and saw it start to sleet and then to hail.  In a matter of minutes the sidewalks and grassy areas (those 10 inch by 13 inch patches we have here called a yard) were beginning to glisten in icy white.  Such an unusual thing.  The sleet/hail mixture continued for about 10 or 15 minutes and as I bundled up my purchase and headed home it was turning more to rain.  But for a brief moment, it wasn't LA but some other foreign city.  And then I thought of Magnolia and looked up to see if Frogs were next.  Fortunately, that was left to the movies.  :)

More soon.  I promise myself!
