Today’s weather has been “weird”.  The forecast was for high winds advisory.  And, is it ever blowing!!!  15 to 35mph with gusts to 60mph…  It is roaring like a wind tunnel and practically knocked my cell phone from my hands as I was taking this picture!

Image of American flag flapping in the wind.

Crackin’ The Flags

And, yes, I know the expression: “Crackin’ the flags” refers to it being so hot the street flagstones are cracking and not to proper flags, but that’s the sound you hear standing anywhere near the flag today.  (The flag is in the school entrance way directly across the street from our house.)

True Color

My wife has been telling me the photo I posted of our newly painted house has been generating questions on her Facebook account about what shade of yellow we got.  It’s NOT yellow!  It’s grey / gray, with white trim and red high-lights…   The fading was caused by my taking the photo in the evening sun, which I guess bleached out the true color.
Here’s a re-take from this morning…
Here’s the photo from a few days ago…
And, yes, I can see why it may have been a bit confusing.  LoL

We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions.  We are haunted, not by reality, but by those images we have put in their place.
