Go on, Gordon

I came home ridiculously early from work today since we were expecting a hurricane to maybe hit us here on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. It would have been called Hurricane Gordon.

But guess what!

Heh heh. No hurricane. Just a little securing of the yard from possible flying objects, destroying a spider’s home (see photo), catching up on some reading, then taking a long, long nap.

Not bad for the day after Labor Day.
