Time to post

I guess I should post again.  I've been leaving comments on blogs lately, and if others check out the blogs of the commenter like I do then someone just might stop by here.  Hate to not have something up for them to read.  I do exist.  I'm not a stalker who just runs around making comments from the darkness.  Then again, the name of the blog is In The Shadows, so in a manner of speaking I do dart out from the shadows.  I had thought to post at least one of the pictures I took with the IPhone last night.  I set up my custom hammock stand and took pictures and posted on a hiking forum I <cough> hang out on.  However, none of them stand alone very well, and are uninteresting if you aren't in to hammocks and stands.  I was wanting to actually spotlight the cats, but there is so much clutter in the shots that the cuteness of the cats kind of gets lost.  The phone doesn't have a zoom or flash, so pictures of moving cats are a challenge.

Mom grabbed a friend in the small town she moved to, and they went to the fair.  Neither had been in years.  I kind of miss going to county fairs.  I'm sure they have them out here.  Guess I should ask around.  Mom said they had fun.  Since it was senior day they got in free.

Still much house cleaning going on for my friend's visit this tomorrow.  She's coming up from Oregon to spend the night.  I went and visited her a few months ago.  We ran around together some in high school.  Luckily I knew her married name and it was unusual enough that I found her via the internet.  We spent 24 hrs. catching up on 30 years last time.  Probably be a continuation this weekend.  The hammock stand pictures were prompted by the fact that I don't have a couch or spare bed.  So, I plan on sleeping in the hammock.  She mentioned she might want to sleep in it, though.  Guess not having an actual spare bed to offer won't be too much of an issue.  Only having one chair is.  I have my recliner.  I'll have to get out a camp chair.  Can you tell I don't entertain much?

Work has been busy with my co-worker still out.  I've been more tired than usual when I get home.  It is also chilly.  As in needing a fleece as well as a rain/wind jacket.  Heck, it's almost August, and its in the lower 50's when I go out to go to work in the mornings.  It never warmed up much today, and there was a chilly wind.  I figure if that job in Central America comes through I'll miss this weather.  I'm rambling and not making much sense, so I'll stop now.

    I belong to a big hiking group so forums like that are right up my alley!

    It's great to hear that your mom is adjusting well and having a good time living life. YEA!

    It worked! I found you, and love your blog.

    I read your "Empathy vs. Beer" response on Mr. Well's thread ... sorry for being so long-winded. I can be passionate at times.

    Not sure I'd go for Budweiser either ... but I'd go for a cold cordial glass of honey whiskey to sip on instead :)
