Just In Case
The temperature soared again yesterday. The air was mucky with smoke from several far-away fires. It gets trapped in the valley and works its way up into the foothills. It wasn't a hardship to get in the air-conditioned truck and finally go to the grocery store, which turned out to be a meet-and-greet site. I ran into Arden in the aisles and later played kissy face-huggy bear with my friend Tom whom I haven't seen in forever while checking out. Arden and I have been discussing the vulture migration. Yesterday being the 19th, the traditional day for departure, she came over to have a cold drink and talk while we watched the skies for the gathering. Either the big birds took off earlier and I missed it or the word hasn't gotten out yet because it didn't happen. Just in case, she's coming back again today.
