I was out mighty early in the morning these past several days except yesterday, when it rained hard enough to break concrete just about, and there was accompanying thunder and lightening aplenty. Copious amounts! ALL day. But Monday morning when I was walking I found this well built home suspended on a pedestrian bridge over a creek. The builder was off on business, so I didn't capture his portrait. I have posted that accomplishment as my header picture for right now. The dew was still on the roses...er...I mean the webs.
Today I was out in the same park and glanced up at the sky and saw my favorite clouds. THIS time they did not herald the ever lasting rain. They heralded the end of the constant rain...at least for a while. It's the "Mackerel sky, soon wet or dry" come to life. That old saying is true every time. If it is dry and they show up...it will rain sure as shootin'. If it has been raining hard for a time..they show up...dry blue skies, coming right up. We only get about 100 days of sun here out of the year. They rest is rain or sunless overcast.
I will head out there again in the morning early. It's getting quite cool in the mornings now, at mid 50's to mid 60's. I like to take advantage of that. There are plenty of dogs and their parents out there too. But they are leashed thank goodness. Some of the owners do the right thing and carry bags. Not all, but some. It's a shame to not be able to walk in the grass in such a huge park though. To do so is asking for trouble.
Katie's brother will come home tomorrow. Her human brother that is. She will be so happy! He was here the very first day that she came home with me. Just worked out that way. And they bonded as much as she and I have.
Do you know any old sayings that you have found to be true too?
