We've been watching this show for about a week now and we are hooked (line and sinker). It's about the middle of season 3 for us and two of our favorite characters have left the show. JR is particularly upset about this last one. She is rather pretty but I don't think that is the reason. I think it has more to do with her character's seeming kindness. Which is hard to find in this bunch. They do seem to be rather a manipulative and underhanded lot. There is all that intrigue. Then again that might be why it's good TV. Back to JR's fav. It could be because she is pretty and he likes eye candy as well as the next guy.
JR was talking to his brother on the phone about the show last night. Turns out that his brother is not a newcomer to the show like we are. Paul (JR's brother) started to tell JR about which characters come and go and do whatever and I could hear JR saying, "don't spoil it for me." Don't you hate a spoiler?
Speaking of Paul, he's coming down to visit us in November. He's never been to Texas and he has some strange notion that he wants to go to a dive bar wearing a big hat and carrying a flag. I'm pretty sure we can accommodate that request. JR will be taking him on what we like to call "The Grand Tour". It consists of a triangular drive from Houston to San Antonio to Austin and back to Houston. They have discussed the addition of Dallas to that route which is completely doable. We should have great weather by then. Paul's from up in the frozen north of western Washington, so 80 degrees in November should feel nice. With the weather we've been having lately I dream of 80 degrees.
Speaking of weather, according the to Weather.com we are in for a cold snap. Cold like in less than triple digits. More like the low to mid 90s. I say bring it on! Even if it comes with rain.
Speaking of rain, we need it. And bad! My tiny patch of a lawn is dead. The bedding plants are sad and my herbs and veggies are holding out only because we water them nightly. I have a rule; when water gets scarce, food gets watered. This rule has been in effect now for at least a month. Makes for some very sad bedding plants. But, it looks like they are in for some rain soon so all is not lost. At least for them. I think the grass is a goner.
Speaking of a goner, I need to be one. Off to work I go.
Stay cool everyone,
