Stepped out on my balcony a little while ago to be greeted by this guy. "Hi! Won't you step into my parlor?" At least six inches tip to tip. I wished him well and left him to his dark business.

A little doggie fun at Lake Grapevine today. It's on top of one of the picnic table shelters retrieving a ball its owner had thrown for it.

Why, yes, I reckon it IS over the top

One of two videos posted of the Lake Grapevine spillway. (the other was 5/31). I guess the City must own a quadcopter.  #texasflood   #dallas  #texas   #rain

A new Google+ feature? Maybe it's a case of "reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." (thank you, MT)  Time will tell.

Dreading the day when my Dad might not know me. I've been away for a month and have that fear. I guess I'll find out whether that time has come or not very soon.
 
Alzheimer's - They Won't Know You
It still amazes me that when a caregiver who has been forgotten, or abandoned, reads this article; and then, after an incredible outpouring of emotions experiences an immediate sense of relief that they are not alone. By Bob DeMarco +Alzheimer's Reading Roo...

Hey, +Angela Shope ... you must have been awakened by the storms. The Alzheimer's worked on Dad very quickly, in the end. He still knew me when I last saw him on Super Bowl weekend, but he passed away a few weeks later. Mom's now in a nursing home after two hip breaks. She has moments of lucidity, although her dementia is often driven by UTI's. Growing old is tough. Sorry to hear that about your mom. It seems impossible to escape cognitive loss.

Just beginning to examine course offerings through Stanford's Novoed website  .... 
This four-module experiential course by +Acumen is a hands-on introduction to social entrepreneurship. It will feature firsthand and advice from 4 leading founders in the social enterprise sector.

As the Second Most Interesting Man in the World, I wholly endorse this. I endorse Dos Equis, too, but am so interesting that I don't take the money they would pay me. Jonathan Goldsmith seems like a nice guy.
He drove a garbage truck in LA and fibbed his way into Hollywood westerns. But Jonathan Goldsmith's big break was getting cast in Dos Equis beer commercials as "The Most Interesting Man in the World."

Glass Cactus at near the record water level for Lake Grapevine. The lake is 28 feet above what is considered normal.  #grapevine   #dallas   #texasflood   #rain   #texas

via Midland Reporter-Telegram. Will be posting these to http://PatrickDearen.com shortly. Patrick's very proud of this. "There was never a better on-screen cowboy than "Gus." To say I'm honored is an understatement."
There are probably few things that would make a Western writer’s day better than seeing actor Robert Duvall read an excerpt from his or her book.

+Dapper Gatsby I've got to get my glasses updated ... "nipple test" ... WHAT? Oh ... in the words of Roseanne Roseannadanna ... NEVERMIIIIIIIIIND! +Steve Kunzer Good discussion, guys. It will be interesting how this all plays out.I think the world needs G+ as an alternative to FB, which I generally have no love for. And, as much as I love Twitter, it's just not an alternative to G+. They serve different purposes..

One is well-served, when reading reviews, to note that the ones most likely to review are those who are unhappy. This is not one of those reviews. I have lived here for nearly 11 years ... my next lease renewal will take me past that. I never expected to live here that long, but Royal St Moritz has served its purpose in my life very well. For me, it's been an almost friction-less way to live. The neighbors have been friendly and quiet, for the most part. The management has been responsive to every problem I've encountered. Yes, the rents have gone up. Grapevine is not the cheapest place to live. But, overall, this has been a very good value.
