Clouds

After a slightly cooler day, clouds began to form in the afternoon. Evening was a mass of rumpled gray. For a while, it looked as though there might be rain, and the air grew stifling. It is a bit clearer now, and a few stars have emerged. San Francisco continues to hog the cool air. They were in the low 60's again today. Oh, the envy! Well, they'll get paid back in autumn, when the place usually heats up and the bay begins to stink with the summer's accumulation of muck.

Someone around here has a peacock. I hear it screaming in the distance, over toward the canyon. I haven't actually seen a peacock since I was very young. The people who lived behind us had several of them roaming about their five acres. I once had a feather from one of them, which it had dropped near our fence. The green part of it was a most enjoyably lurid shade. I wonder what became of that feather? Probably got left behind when we moved from that house. Lots of stuff gets left behind. Lots of stuff never gets seen again.
