Life in the country

For the first time in weeks and weeks the air conditioning AND the ceiling fans are off. It is almost – almost – too cool for shorts. Blessed relief. Only going to be about 72 today. And we even got a bunch of rain last night without the thunder and lightening and wind.
By the end of next week it will be up in the high 90s so going to enjoy it while I can. Here’s an interesting tidbit I gleaned from the TV last night. Black bears can climb a tree at the rate of three feet a second. So if one ever chases you don’t climb a tree he’ll catch you.
If you ever go to Google Earth and zoom in on Indiana we are the green square in the south central part of the state. Most of that green square is Brown County. The only hills covered with forest in the state.
Reading a book by Joseph Wambaugh about the arson investigator from Glerndale, California who set most of the fires he investigated. Creepy. I remember when it was going on and when they caught him. He set a couple of business fires not too far from where we lived at stores that we shopped in.
Interesting couple of entries in the Sherriff’s Log this week.
8:01 p.m. Chief deputy advises just reunited a 6- to 7-year-old female with her parents. Town officer advises missing female now 4 year old.
Boy I want to go missing where ever she was – she got younger pretty quick.
8:03 p.m. County officer out with female subject now. Advises child has been returned to owner.
Lots of trees down the past week and many cows loose – wonder if the one had to do with the other?
Ah - life in the country.
