I did get in some endorphin inducing swimming this morning.
By the time mid-afternoon arrived the air was heated to the mid 90s. And not very windy.
And then, quite suddenly, the predicted clouds arrived, followed by wind and a dropping temperature.
So, I decided to drive to the top of Mount Tandy and have myself a real fine time doing some hill hiking.
But, that did not work out.
When I parked on top of Mount Tandy I saw lightning striking to the south of me. I took off down Mount Tandy anyway. I was halfway down Mount Tandy when I stopped to take the picture you see above of the stunning skyline of beautiful downtown Fort Worth. As you can see, the sky looks a bit foreboding.
I took the picture, stuck the camera back in its pocket and then a downpour began to pour down an ultra copious amount of wetness.

You Can See it is a Bit Stormy
After the aborted hill hiking I drove to Town Talk.
I always seem to find good stuff at Town Talk on Wednesdays. Today it was apricots. I forgot to look on the box to see if these are Washington apricots. I don't remember if Washington apricots are ripe by early June. I suspect not.
I will go try one of the apricots right now. One bite and I should be able to tell you if it is a Washington apricot.
Well, blindfolded I don't think I would have guessed apricot, so I'm guessing this is not a Washington apricot.
Speaking of Washington, one of my two siblings, who are still residents of Washington, that being my big sister, took off for Alaska this morning in her giant RV, along with 3 dogs and my first ex-wife.
My sister is going to email me pictures and then I am supposed to blog them on a blog that my sister set up, the login info of which I have not yet been sent.
I like taking a vicarious trip via someone's pictures, so this virtual Alaska trip should be fun. We will be going all the way to the Arctic Circle.
Changing the subject from the Arctic Circle to ice closer to home.
