Riding The Storm Out





Go ahead and hover over the photos;
I usually leave messages there...

"Rain, rain...go away!
Come again some other day!"

Yesterday, I sat on the front porch to wait for the rain to stop, so I could start my usual neighborhood walk.  Before too long, Patty O'Malley came along to sit with me (and complete his toilette), then Sweetie joined us.  My bottom started getting too cold on the concrete, and the rain did not stop, so I was forced inside again. Neither cat wanted to come inside with me.  I dutifully grabbed the kibble box, and went BACK outside...in the rain...to walk around the house and dole out their evening treat.

Although heavy at times, in general the rain was more like a really heavy mist, which reminded me of my long-ago trip to Ireland.  I'm told that Oregon and Washington have similar weather; hope to someday visit the Atlantic Ocean coast to experience it for myself.

Yes, I know I could have grabbed an umbrella and exercised regardless of the rain, but I enjoyed my porch time with Patty and Sweetie instead.

  5. One never regrets time spent with cats!
    ps - Re: your comment on our blog ... Momma was super scared of both too! The first year, she nominated herself only because she was so sure she wouldn't win - she wanted an excuse to quit blogging. And she's a complete introvert and hasn't been treated well by large groups of people. Luckily, BlogPaws is different in that people are so friendly and welcoming. If Momma can help or encourage you in any way ... please e-mail us! She'll answer questions and help however she can!
