I did not walk by the location of the most recently removed Tandy Hills Art Installation, that being the Orange Flags Stuck in Feces one.
I think we'll call today's art discovery "Rocks on the Tandy Escarpment."
So named because this latest Art Installation is located on the Tandy Escarpment above the now dry Tandy Falls and the equally dry Tandy River.
There is a possibility our current bout of dryness may be slightly alleviated today and in the coming days.
I do not think we are going to heat up HOT enough to make this the 8th 100 degree or more day in a row, here in the D/FW Metroplex. Currently, coming up on 3, it is only 95 degrees. Some thunderstorming is on the menu for tomorrow.
Changing the subject back to the Tandy Hills from the all important HOT temperatures. Usually when I am on the Tandy Hills, in the noon time frame, when the temperature is between 90 and 110, I never see any other humans.
I just realized I managed to change the subject back to the temperature again.
Anyway, I entered the Tandy Hills today via View Street. As I walked into the hill zone I was surprised to see another human ahead of me.
A shirtless guy in long pants, ambling along with a very odd gait.
Why would anyone go hiking in long pants when it is so HOT?
By the time I caught up with the guy, and passed him, he was fiddling with a cell phone and did not seem to notice me walking by him.
I wonder if this guy is the Tandy Hills Guerrilla Artist?
Speaking of Guerrilla Artists. I heard from Elsie Hotpepper this morning and again this afternoon. Elsie had been missing since Friday. The most recent email from Elsie asked me not to kill her. What an odd request, I thought to myself. I can't remember the last time I killed anyone.
