QUICK! NAME (Or sing), SONGS with RAIN in the lyrics…. GO!
“It never rains in California, but girl don’t they warn ya, it pours, man it pours.”
“Rainy nights In Georgia…”
“Singing in the Rain…”
Yesterday, I awoke, to gray skies but by the afternoon, it was blue skies and upper fifties! All that vitamin D lifts my mind, body and soul.
Today, I awoke to a heavy chest. I opened my eyes and stared straight into Marbre’ Mitten’s eyes. Sure enough, my beloved, chill cat, had laid herself across my chest. She positioned herself perfectly so that our faces were less than an inch apart. Playing on the meow radio, was her sweet, peaceful purring song.
Chief, Abby and I had our usual 2:30 a.m. trek. Opening the front door, we discovered the beginning of little sprinkles. A gentle rain as opposed to the torrential downpour Friday. That caused flooding in a few areas closer to the coast.
Chief doesn’t mind, though we all know he prefers snow. It’s poor little Abby. As a Yorkie-poo, much closer to the ground, Chief often leads her into puddles that soak her belly. She’s a trooper. She just wades on through. Perhaps she needs some colorful boots? (Moments like this, I would love to be a cartoonist with the ability to sketch that visual!)
We walked a few feet west and I noticed, what looked like a baby skunk crossing the road to the grassy hill on the other side. It didn’t quite waddle like a skunk. I was almost sure I saw black and white stripes but… Then I noticed there was a larger one of the same species, already in the grass. The bigger one seemed to have more of a white fur base. Peering through the lights of the street lamps, their movement was different than a skunk. Their shape and the gleaming eyes reminded me of possum? I really don’t know. Research time! (Input welcomed!)
Checked with my daughter she is saying possum. Sounds like it was a great idea I turned around. They seem to be a bit aggressive towards canines. Eeek!
Happy Monday all!!
** Happy Almost 2019!!**
