Courthouse Entrance

The courthouse is undergoing some repairs.  New roof, cleaning of the outside, and more things that have been needed for a while.  Nothing on the inside now.  Have to  waterproof before we can do anything to the inside.  This has caused some differences in the way we carry on business. 

Every day we play musical doors.  Which door can we enter or exit?  Sometimes it changes from morning to noon to quitting time.  At least we are getting our exercise.

If the door is not an option, try this lift and enter through the windows.  Or if you are really daring, try the lift to the roof.

The last two really aren't options.  Just trying to be funny.  Don't be thinking any of us would do that.  We don't love to work that much!!

Enter New Lifestyle

Open the door and come on in!  I've been gone a while but have missed being here.  A lot has happened since I was on here last.  Some good things have happened, some bad, some sad, but things nonetheless.

It's been a record setting year here as far as temperatures.  One hundred teens for weeks on end.  No rain.  Everything is drying up and burning up.  We received 1/4 of an inch of rain early Saturday morning.  It's a start!

This summer started off with health issues...Behm's.  Carotid surgery and doctor's visits and lifestyle changes for both of us.  Quit smoking...good thing...bad attitude (mine).  Quit frying foods...good thing...bad attitude (Behm).  I've read more labels than I ever have in my life and always looking for recipes for chicken and fish.

I love fish.  Fried fish that is.  I am still struggling with baked.  Behm has never been a fan of fish, but we're both trying to learn to enjoy it.  Right now I'm just choking it down.

The doctor said if it flies or swims it's good to eat.  Behm said cattle swim and pigs fly, but I don't think that's what he meant.  We still have beef at least once a week, after all we do raise cattle for part of our living.

If you have any help for fried food withdrawal, please comment.  I need all the help I can get!
