Every year, I watch my horoscope work its way up to the top spot on the page. I read it but I don't place a lot of stock in what it says. As the summer ends, my horoscope falls to last place and that is my notice that fall is near. I also notice that the spiders outside are getting real aggressive about putting up large webs to trap insects for their egg nests. I don't mind the spiders but I hate driving my tractor and hitting one of those webs that coat you face with sticky strands. This time of year we walk the paths here with a wand to wave at the webs to make the webs disappear.
Yesterday on the radio I heard a cute story about hurricane season. A policeman drove through a neighborhood about to be hit by a hurricane. He told everyone to evacuate. One old man said "God will Save Me." A little later on after a levee broke they sent a boat to check on the old man. He was sitting on his porch up to his waist in water and he again said "God will save me." After the other levee broke they sent a helicopter to lower a rope and the man who was on his roof again said, "God will save me." The old man drowned and went to the pearly gates. He said to Saint Peter, "God didn't save me!" Saint peter just shook his head and said, "God sent you a policeman, a boat and a helicopter, some times you just have to listen and help yourself."
