It's still there......

Went up to the property yesterday, it's still there! Overall, it was an incredibly relaxing day. It was warm enough that I walked around without my shorts on. Danny asked me why I bothered keeping my lower half covered, considering I was up there all alone. Well, considering the sun burn I got on my upper half, I'm kinda glad for the psychological block society gave me. Anyway, I went on a couple nice walks and completely planned out Chapter 1 for the Psychology class I'm teaching this fall. I know what I'm going to stress, the projects they're going to have to do and how I'm going to grade them. It's amazing how much work I can get done when there is no TV, internet and other things to distract me. Only 20 more days and I'll have the whole book covered. On the way home I decided to take the Wolf Creek Pass route home. Which, by the way, is a lot longer than just taking SR40 back. But it was something different, and quite scenic. I left the land around 3:30 and got home real close to 7:00, but I did make quite a few stops for pictures. Then I got home, cleaned up and went down to Free Wheeler to bug Danny for a couple deliveries. Headed home and, despite being in the convertible (with a top that doesn't go up) and it raining lightly, stopped in at Albertsons to pick up some aloe vera gel for my sunburn. Made it home before the storm really hit, and fell asleep on the back porch listening to the storm. I was pretty surprised how relaxing the thunder and lightning was for me. Anyway, that was my day, and the main thing is that the fires have avoided our little area. Oh, and if you want to see the pictures I took, click HERE.

I'm glad you got rain. I've been stressing over how to pack some home for you. In return, we actually had a sunny day today. It didn't rain at all FOR A WHOLE DAY.
Glad you had fun being in your own little nudist colony for the day....

Yeah, it was pretty mild in Sugarhouse compared to Murray, which got 1/2" of rain in 15 minutes. But it was nice and all my plants had nice smiling faces when I got up this morning.
And just for the record - aren't you glad I didn't post any pictures from the day of nudist colony?

There's a reason why mankind invented clothing. Thank you for not posting.
I'm surprised you haven't made any smart-mouth remarks about my latest post yet. It's just inviting you to do so.

Hey, you gotta give a guy a chance.......

I'm talking about the response to your blog - not me running around naked.

LOL on that last comment. Glad you clarified. I'm not quite sure I'm ready for the nudist colony. I like my vericose veins hidden, thank you very much.
Actually, I most expected you to comment on the BYU part of my post, but I liked the hair comments anyway. I've left you a URL to read; it'll make you feel safer.

Oh my.
One of my former students (now31) has requested that I ask you the following questions:
1) Do you remember what you dream about?
2) If so, do you dream in black and white, color, or you don't remember which?

If you answer, I will explain. (And no, I don't need to know what you dream about, which may be a very good thing.... Although one former student once told me the only dream he could remember having was of a giant pumpkin..... Where's Freud when you really need him?)
