2018 August 11 Saturday in Grimes Iowa

66­ and hazy this morning. The sun looks somehow fake this morning as if some cosmic prankster substituted an orange ball in place of the sun.


Thursday Cutty’s Campfire Cafe had a meatloaf dinner and it was very good. Unfortunately for me it was also full of onions.


I have a allergy to onions that causes anywhere from a mild scratchiness of the throat to swelling of the throat. I didn’t know that it was full of onion until Friday morning when I woke with a scratchy throat. It wasn’t severe just an irritant. There was a small piece of the meatloaf leftover and I took it for my supper at work last night. That has turned out to be an unwise choice. This morning I woke with a very sore and swollen throat and my lips are also swollen. In the photo I am not trying to accentuate the lips … that is just how they look this morning. Also I itch all over, which is something new.


It was feeding time at and below the bird feeders this morning. However, right after I took this photo, a grackle flew smack dab into the window with a loud thump. He was dazed but seemed okay. It did frighten the other creatures away, however. I guess I shouldn’t have cleaned the glass so well.

Looking through photos from years gone by.

This was about August 2012 when our pickup was being repaired after a yellow post at Walmart “ran into it.”
