Possibility of rain...

Maybe we'll finally get a decent rain after all these months of dry weather from this tropical storm. Yesterday, the forecast had it turning through Mississippi, but judging from The Weather Channel's "map in motion", looks like it might be heading at least partly through northeast Louisiana...



Also, today is moms birthday, she turns 69.

Not Much Changes In These Parts...

Not a whole lot in the house I'm currently living in has changed "much" over the years. Take for example the kitchen, which was added on in the late 1960's by my dad, after the original house was feeling a bit too small. Here's a side-by-side comparison of an area of the kitchen after the house add-on, 40 year span. Mom is dressed as an Indian apparently in the 1971 pic... the 2011 pic was taken this evening...



Apart from some more cabinet painting, a new stove, a bar put in, a couple of more things hanging on the wall and cabinets, not much change after all these years.

Might post more "comparison" pictures at a later date, just need to scan older pictures first...
