SkyWatch Friday (my twenty-nineth) -- For my friends up north -- Have you had your car read lately? #017
I just though you all might want to see what our Sky looks like around here. All of the moisture in these clouds is headed north where they are getting plenty. Al Gore, please hurry up there, they are needing you!
The top picture was taken from the St. Luke Tower across the street from the Houston Medical Center. My cardiologist,
Dr. Krajcer (link), has his office on the top, 27th floor. I go every six months for tests, this time it was a stress EKG, a Peripheral Vascular Test, and Lab (blood) tests.
I will get my results Monday. No major problems expected but I took myself off one of my cholesterol meds as my muscles were deteriorating and painful.
Midwesterners, rent one of these if you get to Barcelona (Spain)
[large picture] [super sized]
These little cars for two were all over Barcelona. I don't know how the audio works. It could be GPS directed, 'key on the map numbers' or dial 1-900-555-5555.
Check em out if you go. I'd pick a day like we did, rain might be troubles. In more ways than one.
What Midwesterners do for fun
Looks like they are all watching the little fish swim near this Duluth (Minnesota) peer.
That is my sister, Lois, waving to us from the front white pad. (behind the guy with the red coat sitting in back of the people on the same white pad--if you were having trouble finding her)
Wait, that was a ship way out there! Oh yes, these ships come through to the port several times a day. Not quite like Houston where one or more comes every few minutes up our ship channel.
Either way, both these activities are free so what the hey? Why not. Kids love it too!
NOTICE: You are not welcome in Houston and please do not come if you do not look us up while you are here!
Now back to the fish watching. The ships are gone for a while.
I'm sure your turn for rain will come soon. We've been in a drought for awhile here, but over the last few weeks we have been drenched with rain...
I do stop in from time to time to see what you are up to. A lot of times it is on my break at work. I view you and a few others blogs on my phone.
If my doctor was on the 27th floor I might have more stress than normal!
Loved all your pictures.
If I ever come to Houston, believe me, I'd look you up!!
On your post below, the new street looks nice.... And you and ADI walk that golf course, don't you?
BTW: Happy Father's Day.
Sydney - City and Suburbs
Were been in drought for 4 years, but as i type I can hear rolling thunder Hope we get a downpour. we are in Winter after all
Your blue Texan sky is envoyed all over the globe.
Don't you dare to complain!
I appreciate the pix from Duluth, Minnesota.
I presume you know the one superimportant person, one of the world's all time top 100, who was born there in 1941.
I wish you all a wonderful midsummer, or St. John's Eve, we call it.
I do hope all goes well with your procedures on Thursday. Will think of
you and send a prayer above. Best of luck and I hope you have a minimum of pain and discomfort. Get well soon. Take great care, my friend.
Best wishes, Merle.
