Come Hell or High Water

 Well I've had the high water I guess I better start praying so I don't get the Hell!

Steps under water

Who's bright idea was it to try and drive through the river?

My new indoor water fall

The flood water is rising! 
 Thanks Long Island Railroad... Your clear cutting of the trees across the street and leaving the debris behind has left us with twice the noise and a lovely river when it rains.

A Long Walk

I was feeling very restless last night.  It was horrible... nothing seemed appealing.  The Television was filled with crap I didn't want to watch, I wasn't in the mood for video games, I have plenty of good books but didn't feel like reading them.  I even took a look at what was in the movies and nothing was there that couldn't wait till it came out on video... Sorry Batman I'll wait!

Finally the restlessness got to be too much and I had to do something so I took the dog for a walk.

 I have to tell you it was the best choice ever! 

The temperature outside was perfect and the humidity was low and a light breeze kept the mosquitoes at bay.  The neighborhood was so quiet you might think there was no one left if not for the occasional train going by.   It was a wonderful time to think about nothing or anything.  Even the squirrels were laying low so Cricket just padded along beside me.  It was one of those moments when everything seemed at peace ...though I know that its not... it was a very restful moment. 

When I got home I found something on TV that was worth time to watch.  It was a sneek peek of a show coming out in September Called Farm Kings.  About a family of brothers taking on the life of farmers together.  Now I am a true hater when it comes to reality TV.  I think it is dehumanizing as people try to out asshole each other...excuse my language.  But this is a show about family coming together and I think that is something that is sorely missing from America today.  The ability of a family to pull together and work toward making everyones life better. 
 Here is an even smaller sneek peek from Youtube. 

Come September I'll be watching I hope you will to.  This is a show that should be number 1 on the Neilson rating.  I know it won't be cause it will hopefully be a show that shows what a family should be, not how much hurt someone can pour on one another. NO fashion diva's who treat others like SHIT,  No pick on out of 20 to a relationship that will never work, no Judges crushing the dreams of hopeful people.  Just a Hard working family sticking together.
