2019 July 18 Thursday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa

81° and high humidity makes it feel like 85° at the break of day. Which is why there is still an excessive heat warning inn effect.

One of the blogs that I follow which is entitled “My Joyous Feature” had an interesting thought about pen and paper, about letting your thoughts flow onto the paper. In truth, I seldom write on paper. I enter my thought through my phone, tablet, or laptop. If I have paper in front of me, I doodle or sketch.

One of my lecture notes from Bible College turned into a drawing of a man rescuing a child from a fast-flowing stream, which I’m sure had nothing to do with the lecture.

I draw on napkins in restaurants and styrofoam cups make a great canvas.

I once went back to visit a place that I had previously worked many years before. I found some of my sketches of an employee hanging on a back room bulletin board. (The sketch not the employee.)

The real kicker was that this wasn’t the same building. The previous building had burned and the store moved to a new location. Which means, that, among all the things saved from that fire, where my sketches.

One of the other blogs that I follow, “Just Sketching” has a gentleman who sketches everyday, something from life. It is amazing how much he captures in these rough drafts. I have not developed that dedication and commitment … yet!

95° that feels like 110° in Iowa

94° and feels like 98° in Texas

Either way, it’s hot!

Niece Kara stopped to pick me up as I got off work at the fee booth this afternoon. She spent a couple hours with us, playing Fast Track.

I haven’t been notified that the worship bulletins are ready, but we drove across town anyway hoping that they were. They weren’t.

Once we returned home we played more Fast Track.

8:30 p.m. and still 95°.

God bless and g’nite
