Oven Cleaner and "Evening"
I saw "Evening" earlier today. Seems the "lesson" is that mistakes don't matter in the end. I disagree, thinking of murder and mayhem, but have concluded that the Oven Cleaner in the Microwave probably doesn't matter. ____ used it this morning for bacon. I did not partake, and ____ is still alive and well. 

Meanwhile, it is raining here ... again ... yet. We have had double our annual rainfall so far this year, I think. Here everyone, everything is soggy. I took my favorite drive today - winding road that crosses a creek seven times. You're sure you're in the middle of nowhere, but actually are right in the middle of the city. When it rains a lot the road is closed. The seven creek crossings do not have 'bridges' per se. The water can run under the road, but a lot of rain brings a gushing river over the pavement. Today the road was open, but 5 of the 7 crossings were under water. Both waterfalls were full, plus a few new places of moving water. In my big car it was no problem, but would have been very interesting in my sports car. 

On a bright note, my Harry Potter arrived today. My son, DIL, granddaughter, mother are all coming over tomorrow, so I will wait to start it until tomorrow night when they've gone.

Sounds like Spicewood Springs Road here in Austin, complete with two "regular" waterfalls and one "wet weather" one. :-)

My favorite road is "Old" Spicewood Springs Road in Austin. It was wetter than I've seen it in years today. The first waterfall (on the left, relatively high, coming from the Spicewood end) was gushing water! Wanted to go back to take a photo, but it rained more while I was out - I decided to stay home. Maybe tomorrow.

I'm going to have to drive by there. I've only seen that particular fall i>gush</i> twice in the twelve years I've lived in the Austin area.

For nine of the twelve years, I lived on Metric. As soon as I bought my house in Leander, an Original Pancake House opened on the corner of Metric and Parmer. It's four AM, and I've got such an urge for apple pancake....is it worth the 20 mile drive????
