Good Morning September 12, 2018

A lovely day here in Zapata, TX. We've had quite a bit of rain in the last few days and Falcon Lake is rising. That is good, because it's been pretty low this summer. The farmers south of here need to irrigate their crops so tons and tons of water from Falcon is drained and runs south to the Valley. Mexico needs irrigation, as well and water from Falcon goes to those crops too. George is excited with the increasing depth, as are all the fishermen. More water means more places to fish, and the lake isn't so muddy. So my hubby will get out on the water, as soon as the rain stops. We all know, he loves to fish. I'll go with him one day soon. I don't fish, but I have a Kindle and a camera, so I keep busy. I've a lot of photographs of the landscape from our pontoon's point of view. Mostly dead trees sticking out of the water. Mesquite trees are plentiful in this part of Texas. When the Rio Grande River was dammed up 60 years ago, the water spread and formed Falcon Lake, which is about 30 miles long. The mesquite trees' "ghosts" are still reaching from their roots out of the blue water toward the blue sky. Once in a while, one sees a sleeping indigo snake wound around a tree branch. They scare me to death, but they are harmless and protected, I believe. Back to my blog. I'm going to try to make a go of having a blog, since I am a published writer now, I must have a blog, right? We'll see how it goes. George has a blog and he's been trying to help me get this thing started. Forgive the amateur look. We are working at perfecting it. I'll try to have a picture or two, as well. Have a nice day. God bless and keep all of you well.
