Skywatch Friday - 22 July 2021 Edition


The smoke from all the forest fires out west finally showed up in Tulsa this week. I'm sure hoping that they get some rain out there to help put those fires out.

Skywatch Friday - Mid July 2021 Edition


Wow, it's mid July already!! Who'd of thought so soon. Here in Oklahoma it's hot and humid. I am kind of used to it and don't mind it so much. Better than freezing is what I say. I found a quote that I love about July.

Personally I don't mind the grass getting a little tall. What about you? Do you let the grass grow a little bit more in July.

I really enjoy reading the posts from Australia and New Zealand this time of year. I love hearing about how cool things are. That gives me a little relief all by itself.

I wish everybody a great upcoming weekend. Please stay safe.

I still think of what it would be like to a cloud drifting over the land. The things I would see...
