It's still July here for several hours. Could you re-open July so I don't get ahead of myself? Pretty please?

It's been hot and somewhat humid for me...30 days in a row over 100°F is enough and now they are saying we may threaten the highest ever recorded temperature here in Dallas...which was 113°F in late June 1980.

Same here, but after this July, I'll be glad for it to be over!

Since Lady is confined to house and garden for at least a week until kennel cough has gone(fingers crossed) I am missing 3 walks a day(much needed exercise). Part of this has been replaced by extra cycling plus



borrowing Mollie to walk

We've always had Shepherds, Star is our fourth. She is the gentlest lady you could ever wish to meet, she loves everyone and her favourite position is on her back having tummy tickles.

When you collect grid squares on the map you end up with lots of these roundabouts

Aw! Precious is very cute too.
Ok then, here is Gnawra, thick as a plank but very loyal. Found in the village rubbish bin aged about 8 days. Now runs the place.

One of the fountains nearby in Plano, TX. It shoots water up about 30 feet. This was taken near sunset.

Yes, the houses in this neighborhood are big (about 4000 square feet).

The Response 1914 by William Goscombe John



A large and striking memorial consisting of a rusticated granite screen on which is mounted a high relief depiction of soldiers responding to the call-up for the First World War, modelled virtually in the round from black bronze.

On the road again, heading north, this is the roundabout under the A1M in Stevenage.

One is supposed to press the button to get the "Walk" sign to light up, but the casing is gone/rusted and there's just a hole where the button should be! The light does eventually change, though, even without a button to press smile
