Summer Rain

Hey gang, how`s tricks? Come on in and grab a mug.

Another Sunday night has crept up on us, hasn`t it? It seems like Mister just gets home on Friday and when I turn around its Sunday evening. Summer kind of brings a sort of hazy laziness to life it seems. The heat makes us seek out shade trees, fans, and tall glasses of iced tea. It`s been hotter than usual here in Pennsylvania this summer, at least it feels it to me. I don`t do heat well. Or cold. Give me temps between fifty and seventy and I`m one happy goatherder!

With all the heat and humidity thunderstorms are sure to rumble along. So far I have yet to find any Greek gods lying nekkid in my goat barn. Darn it. Thursday we had a very severe line pass over, dropping tornados in nearby counties and New York. The hot, heavy clouds seemed to like passing over our farm and we muddled about for days with storms and gulley-washers. We did need the rain though, so I do try to keep that in mind when I come back from doing chores a wee bit soggy. The patter of rain on roofs and ground is rather comforting isn`t it?

The garden is very thankful for the precipitation, as are these pretty little daisies growing by our stone steps.

How has summer been treating your posies and potatoes?

Hi Vicki! Glad you got some relief from the heat! I LOVE it when it rains! And it has here for two days....we so needed it too!
Fingers crossed for the 'arrival' of a Greek god or two!! lol

Have had some rain here, mostly noise though. Was quite interesting last night, the moon was shining and it started to rain over us. Nice to go to sleep to at 3 a.m.

It sound like you have had the same type of weather as we are dealing with. That big one completely missed us, but I heard Benezette got plastered.

We haven't seen any of them thar greek gods down here either.

On the serious side, I was impressed with your book. You succeed in painting a vivid picture of happenings and not only just tell a story, but you described the surroundings and supporting action so well that one can mentally see the scene you are portraying like you are watching a movie.

Seems like we either have too much rain or not enough!

Thank you very much, Willard, for buying a copy! It`s wonderful to hear readers saying they enjoyed the book. It`s also very pleasant to hear so many men responding favorably to a romantic/comedy novel.
