This is the rescue-turtle that Moni and I saved yesterday. It's been HOT, even by Texas' standards, so when we saw this dried-out dude at our front walkway, we knew we had to act. There's a pond a few miles away where it's kin live so we let it free at that location. In case you can't tell by the face, it was super excited and thankful by our act of kindness. It has arms and legs they're just in the shell.

There are a lot of gas stations around here that look like they've been around for some years. This is one that caught my eye south of Houston.

Walking through Galveston, there was this woman who decided to hand-paint her Nissan Altima for the heck of it. The downtown area of Galveston is like a walk back in time, except for people hand-painting their cars.

Driving through the backcountry today Moni and I spotted a field of longhorn cattle so I had to stop to check it out. This one seemed relaxed but it was too hot to do anything else so I don't think it had much choice.

These are some roofers that were hard at work the other day. It truly boggles the mind how fast these guys finish roofs. Don't be fooled by the guy chugging a soda, these two had this section of roof done in no time, and there were about 20 workers total. They've never heard of OSHA though and there was a flurry of shingles and debris flying off the roof. Everyone kind of knows this so no one leaves their apartment until the roof is done. It's annoying, but smart if you want to stay safe.
