September 12, 2009 - I´ve been thinking about blogging for some time now, and finally decided to give it a try. The layout isn´t what I had hoped for, but it is a beginning.

We´re all looking forward to the end of summer here in the desert. There have been brief periods of cooler (a relative term here) weather. This morning Kent and I bicycled to breakfast--the first time we have done that in months.

And last night we sat on the back porch for a while and watched the lightening. It never rained here, but there may have been some rain in the east. Or maybe not. That´s the way it is in the desert.

While we were watching the sky, a Great Horned Owl swooped down and landed on top of our street light. Kent saw him land. But once he was on top of the light, all we could see was a shadow, and we couldn´t see that very well. The light from the pole blinded our view. After a while, we heard another owl hooting in the distance. Soon our visitor answered!
