Raining. Again. No, really


I will NOT complain.

We have had drought so long....rain is good.

The lettuce is ruined now. Beat down by hail.

Tomatoes split their skins overnight.

Morning glories hang in tatters.

I will not complain.

Ducks are happy.

Last night there was a tree frog as big as Uncle's hand plastered against the French doors.

The water bill will be less.

I will not complain.

I may build an Ark.

Chile, I'm so tired of all this rain! This afternoon, we had a cottonmouth in the front yard. And over the weekend, Duller and I both got bit by lone star ticks... mine's a lot worse. Thankfully, they aren't lymeys. Howsomever, the STARI notion is unappealing enough. So I'm begrudgingly taking antibotics, coz I'm not so sure echinacea & golden seal will do this particular job. Ò¿Ó

Reckon I complained enough for both of us? 8-}

We're getting a lot of rain, too! An early Monsoon, they say. Ugh. My lettuces are happy, but not my tomatoes. It's always something. But I'd love to see a big ol' bullfrog! We don't get them around here . . .

I'm trying not to complain either!
Wonderful memorials, btw, unfortunate that it is that we need them. I've still been stopping by but missed a few days lately.

Aunty Belle,
You looking as green as Ireland in yore parts?
Too bad about the rain bashed veggies but it is a good idea to keep them aquifers topped off.

Hope you gotch urself some good rain boots for meandering around your patch? Last time I was in your part of the world in heavy rains with light flooding...well lets just say floating fire ants are ornery creatures. God knows you don't want to find no cottonmouths or poisonous frogs or awful ticks calling into the Porches, but like SophieMae mentioned, them critters go to wandering in rainy weather. The good news is the gators should stay put .

Sorry to learn bout your connection troubles.
Isn't it interesting how often the hardwired services have difficulties but the wireless ones less so? Kinda makes me a bit nervous to have essential services be at risk.
