Hello everybody! So we were promised rain today – and we NEED it – BAD. No jokes from me about floating away or building an ark – WE NEED RAIN. Everything is limp and dried up and pretty soon we’ll be seeing leaves just dropping off the trees and not bothering to turn pretty colors because they’re SO THIRSTY!
So I’m thinking I should do a rain dance. You know – like the indian tribes do. Only thing is I have arthritis and I’m afraid it would hurt my old bones to hop around like that. So I’m just gonna think positively and WISH for rain. That doesn’t hurt my shoulders AT all…….
There’s my house up on a hill safe from flooding so RAIN RAIN RAIN – it’s alright with me. If it rains all day my parents will stay home anyway – which is a good thing. That means I can rest easy – don’t have to guard the house while they’re gone……I can nap and relax. Mom will probably be in her office working on some of the upcoming blog events to get ME ready (Tee hee) and Dad will be out in his shop or down in the basement tinkering. I’m a bit unclear to this day about that “tinkering” thing because personally I think what he does is hide out somewhere and take a nap but hey – I can’t point fingers here – I’m the KING OF NAPS!
Last night my parents went out to dinner for their anniversary which was this past Sunday. Their fave restaurant in town is packed to the gills on weekends so they waited until mid-week to go. Did they think to bring their little fella a snackable from dinner? Just a little morsel to say “we thought of you Sammy” ? Heck no. And the worst thing about that is that my Mom had seafood – which I adore…..she had calamari and she had soft-shell crabs – I could EASILY have packed away a bit of those I’m quite sure. Dad had something called a mixed grill which was meat of three kinds but I’m not a meat guy. MOM LET ME DOWN.
So, how about you? What’s up in your house today? Anything exciting? I hope so, because other than dancing around hoping for rain, it’s liable to be QUIET and BORING around here today. 😦
