Anyone See the Sun? Bueller? Bueller?

A couple of weeks I watched the rain. It rained and it rainied. From drizzle to high winds to heavy rain, it did not stop raining all week. The low point of that very wet week came on Friday. I stepped in a puddle. And it was a big puddle as well. Of course,...

Rain, Rain, Go Away #EnglishMemories

I’m sitting here on the couch staring out the window. Rain is coming down. It’s damp…chilly…and bleak. Nothing like Monday’s heavy tornado-like rain. Just a rainy day. I’m used to rain. Growing up in England, rain was the weather I experienced the most. For allĀ  my school years, I always had an umbrella and...

Limping, Knee Surgery, and Convalescence #kneesurgery
