2019 July 21 Sunday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa

We had lots of wind and rain overnight. Several people reported downed trees and damage. There was a limb about 2″ in diameter and 8′ long wedged between the mirror and my truck’s driverside door. But no apparent damage.

The day started with a humid 70°and reached a high of a humid 77°. However, even with the humidity, it was a nice break from the high 90s.

There was a nice group at our campground worship service and many stayed to just talk afterwards.

We went to Casey’s (a local chain of convenience stores) for pizza. You may be thinking, “Oh, gas station pizza. Yuck!” But that is not Casey’s at all. They are a great pizza place that happens to also sell gasoline.

What is a day without a visit to Wal-Mart? We’ve been talking and planning to rebuild the king size bed that we have in our Iowa trailer. It takes up too much space in an already small room. Part of the planning is thinking about underbed storage. Our plan was to visit the new Menards in Grimes. However, when I got inside there was only one electric cart* and it wasn’t working. I couldn’t get anyone’s attention for assistance. So we left and went across the street to Wal-Mart. We came up with some possibilities.

However, none of them seemed to say, “Yes, this it’s exactly what we are looking for!”

Supper was a “catch as catch can” sort of meal where we both, separately raided the refrigerator.

We had several short rounds of rain in the late afternoon.

God bless and g’nite

*I’m overdue for a knee replacement (or 2?)
