August 5, 2010

Tomato season is here! The tomatoes above that Jimmy's proudly showing off are large September late season tomatoes of course. But we're finally getting a taste of fully ripe tomatoes, especially the smaller, earlier varieties, in our gardens.

Thunderstorms spiraling through the city. One short and sweet, then sun, so walked downtown. Boomers soon broke out directly overhead unleashing torrents from the sky. Had my umbrella, so stayed reasonably dry. Walked unconcerned, knowing somehow that it wasn't my to die. I have been in a few storms where the opposite seemed certain. But was somehow spared for the hangman, jealous husband or another inevitable horrible fate.

Quote of the Day
Life is like a trumpet - if you don't put anything into it, you don't get anything out of it.
W.C. Handy
