Finally the rains have found the Serious house!! It’s not like we were hiding!! It must have been because the rain gods and goddesses were waiting until Mrs S had a fancy party to attend. Or just maybe it was Raven finally letting go of the ‘rainfall powers’ that she possesses?? Whatever, it started with the wet stuff this afternoon and it is expected to continue off and on throughout the night!
Lucky neighbors… living at the end of the rainbow!
So tonight it’s just me and my crazy dogs, living high on the hog!! Oh, hang on! My TV dinner is done!
You know, TV dinners aren’t that bad nowadays, especially the ones from Stouffer’s and Marie Callender’s but I’ve yet to find a fish one that hasn’t made me gag! I tend to stick with the pastas. Now where was I?? Oh yeah, rain.
No matter what the weatherman says, it always seems to elude me. Like my little town is enclosed in some sort of rainproof bubble. And being the sucker that I am, I ALWAYS beleive what they say! Dangle that carrot out there and ol’ Mr Serious will follow, and then listen to the sniggering that is sure to follow. Just the slightest hint that there might be rain coming sends me into a frenzy of activity to insure that the dry things stay dry and the plants are positioned to receive their maximum rainage. And of course, there’s nothing like the earthy smell of a wet dog!
But come to think of it, it might not be the actual rain that excites me but the glimmer of hope that our boring weather will actually change!! I know what some of you are thinking… is he nuts??? Southern California has beautiful weather, it seems, nearly every day! But as with everything else, too much of a good thing eventually gets B O R I N G!!!! I was raised in New Jersey where the weather was always a crapshoot but at least there was variety and there were SEASONS! Rain in the spring, changing leaf colors in the fall, snow in the winter and a summer that lasted the normal 4 or so months. I miss that but not enought to move back there. Maybe somewhere north but not too far east. Any suggestions? Seriously….
Enjoy your Sunday everyone
One more thing, for any of you who receive the Discovery channel, the series Planet Earth is an excellent and very entertaining program. It was a tossup for me tonight between that and The History of Sex on the History channel. But I beleive that at my age I can learn more by watching Planet Earth. And besides, there is more than enough sex happening on this show! Crazy lizards……
