Overheard on West Alabama St in Houston regarding the weather…

“It feels like a mouth out here.”

If you’ve ever been outside in Houston, Texas on an August afternoon following a rain shower, you know exactly what they’re talking about.

Like any old codger who sits on the porch, we can talk about the weather. Or we can look at it.

This small clip was taken yesterday in the middle of a brief respite from the blazing August sun.

“Who you chasing, Sheriff? Is somebody chasing you?”

We should try to set aside some time to have lunch with old friends, even when we’re in a (******** ) hurry. However, there may not be time for “Hushpuppy’s, Daddy.”

A Diablo sandwich and a Dr Pepper aren’t meant to be enjoyed alone. Buford knows this.

There’s an old Texas Aggie saying, “Highway 6 runs both ways.”

That refers to folks who don’t like something. A sort of “Take it or leave it,” kind of attitude.

As for me, I’ll be running both ways on Highway 6 today. It’s even four lanes in most places now.

And a very happy August to you.

In honor of the month’s namesake, we’ll leave you with a quote to ponder.

Festina lente

That means make haste slowly.
