There was a few clouds yesterday which made the temperatures a little more bearable, and late afternoon it even sprinkled a little, not enough to wet anything just enough to say it rained. This next week is supposed to be a little cooler with temperatures in the mid to low 90s and that will also be a welcomed relief, especially since there's several days when there's supposed to be some clouds and a chance of rain.
I re-upped yesterday for another week here at the Fairgrounds which involved me having to come in contact with another human being which I haven't done for a while. The part of the Fairgrounds administrative office I had to go to was kind of small and I don't think it was physically possible to get 6 feet away from the lady in charge but I did the best I could. She wasn't wearing a mask or gloves so she must've had some kind of sixth sense to know that I didn't have the Bat flu, which made me feel better knowing I'm not sick.
Since I'm paying a lot of attention nowadays to what I'm touching especially when somebody is handing me something I noticed that she had a habit of licking her thumb [Ewwww] whenever she was moving papers around. I know, I know, papers stick together and don't want to come apart when your fingers are dry, but these aren't the good old days anymore, you just can't be doing that. Fortunately I was wearing gloves because she licked my receipt.... I burned it when I got home.
I walked around the nature, fitness trail this morning for lack of something better to do. The heats not too bad if I can do it about 7 o'clock in the morning but too much past that and it ceases to be fun. I keep hoping I will see a bunch of cactus blooms but so far it's still one here and one there.
When I take sunset pictures I often stand on this outdoor concert stage partially because it keeps me from getting sprinkled by the sprinklers, but mostly because it makes me feel like a rock star..... Not exactly like a rock star of course, there's no throngs of people screaming my name, no fans, no groupies, no million-dollar paychecks, no entourages, no limo rides, no hotel rooms to destroy, no guitar, and no talent. But other than that standing here on this stage is just like being a rock star.
last night's sunset.
This is the webbed lair of the Giant Hairy Peruvian Bat Eating Spider. one of the largest spiders in the world they have the ability to leap from their den and snatch Bats out of the air as they fly by. These spiders are very dangerous and have been known to come springing out of their den and bite humans on the neck with their 3 inch long fangs. Once completely attached it takes a surgeon to remove the spider from your neck. Fortunately since I'm a trained spiderologist I knew this den was empty..... Only a complete idiot would get this close to an occupied den.
