Rain, Rain, GO AWAY

Mom says we should be grateful it rains around here, because so many places aren't getting any and they are at risk for fires.  I know she means well but I'm beginning to feel a bit waterlogged.

Every day this week we have had sudden downpours, and then fifteen minutes later it stops and the sun comes out. The weather liars say it should be sunnier the next few days. I don't even mind it the hots come back if the sun is out.

Every night after she gets home from day-hunting Mom has had to tip over her garden pots and let the water run out. She says her some of her basil is suffering, that it's yellowish and spindly.  Still, she made a batch of pesto last weekend, so that's good.

Mom says she's been wrestling with words for her talk in Saint Loo-is later this year, but really, all she's been doing is tippy tapping on her little lapbox.  I've been napping in all my cool spots, avoiding the flashy box.

We understand your pain, we have had about 36 hours straight of rain, so are feeling a bit waterlogged too. it has finally stopped so hopefully it will be a nicer day for Caturday.

Hope your day clears up too.

Rain is good Millie. Really. Much better than drought.

You're obviously doing a wicked fine job of avoiding the flashy box.

Send that rain to Oklahoma. We need it!
Our Mommy didn't really read much after the "pesto" part. She loves that "green gold" stuff!

We could use that rain here in Southern California - we got a few measly drops last night.

That's what our spring was like. Very Wet!

We are getting kinna tired of the grass being too tall and wet so often ourselfs! TBT says we should be grateful it isnt like a desert out back (like it sometimes is by now). But we want perfection; 1" of rain, 1 day per week...

It is so dry here that we can only water the lawn once a week! We may (very big word) get some rain this week!
