Reflective Vest!

I am perhaps in the market for a new Hi-Vis Night Reflective vest. I want my new one to a) possibly display my slogan, b) have three or more reflective strips on the back as well as the front.

My original one of these vest I have is the one I bought one from REI, which I don't like anymore. It is shorter in the front and longer in the back - somehow doesn't feel right.

After the REI vest, I bought one from Harbor Freight for about $5. I love this vest. It doesn't look too geeky and keeps me visible, day and night. I also painted my favorite slogan on the back of it, viz., "Infinity Miles Per Gallon". I used the symbol for 1/0 instead of writing it out in words as I have done in this post. This vest has grown old and I am not 100% sure it has all of its original reflectivity.

Here are some that are available at REI. One of these might work, if it had the "right" amount of reflective strips on the back as well as the front and importantly not cost an arm and leg! All the ones I have pictured here do not have three or more reflective strips on the back.

The last one I have is one I bought from Walmart. It works pretty well, but it gives the feeling of wearing a over-starched military uniform. Too stiff!

So, to cut to the chase, I am considering buying a new vest. I want to add more reflective strips to the new vest than the default configuration.

In addition, I want to make my own reflective arm and ankle bands. This might require some thinking and might involve some trial and error, but given I haven't seen any commercial product that rocked my world, I am willing to put in the effort to make something I would like.

What do ya think? What do y'all use for reflective bands/vests?

Peace :)

Sand Burrs - Not a friend of Shaggy Dog!

Shaggy and I drove to Cedar Hill yesterday so I can get turn in my Texas State Park Pass voucher and get official pass from the TX Parks Office at Cedar Hill State Park.

We stopped at the Joe Pool Lake to check it out. It was a hot, yet beautiful day here in Dallas. Shaggy didn't appreciate the heat. He hid under the bench.
While this photo is not very crisp, I still want to show it so y'all can see the devastating effect the burrs had on Shaggy's face, which you can see in the next photo.

After we got done with the official business, we decided to go hike the Duck Pond Trail at the Cedar Hill State Park. Little did I know about the dangers of taking a Old English Sheepdog walking in a trail abundant with the infamous Sand Burr. The result:
Those evil things got all over his face and he started rubbing his face with his paws and the burrs from the paws got transferred to his face and it was just a really horrible mess.

I tried pulling them burrs off but in vain. There were way …

Out goes the Chow In comes the Basil and the catters are resting

So, we finally got some cooler temps in North Texas.
In fact, a bit too cold, too soon, for some :)

So, with the new colder weather, someone who has been refusing to stay out in the yard, doesn't want to come in no more. Go figure :)

In comes the Basil plant. Too cold for it, at least right now.
Who knows though? Next week it could be back in the low 80s or some such.
Either way it is fine.
Change is good too.

The catters like to eat and sleep.
Particularly, the seniors.

And, some tired looking Juniors.

It is an assortment this time

That's right. You read the title correctly - this post contains an assortment of photographs, not necessarily in any special order.

I will give you a minute to guess what the first photograph is of :) In case you haven't a clue, you can see my little blurb about it at the very end of this post.
I had the day off Friday, so I did rest a bunch and spend time with my family. Black Kitty took a nap with me and was even friendly after I trimmed his nails :) Sometimes, reflections can be very interesting. I love looking at reflections on many objects/surfaces, such as this reflection of a fence on a motorcycle's headlight.
Just in case. 
The reflection in the first photo is one of a church. The photograph was taken by clicking at the television, while we were watching a British Murder Mystery show. If you enlarge the photo, you can see lot more details.

It has been a great week. Hope yours was too.
