Blooming...

..... a balmy, high-clouded afternoon that has promised rain all day is finally delivering..... heavy, fat raindrops are dully thudding on the roof, thunder is grumbling off in the distance, and occasionally a drop hits the gutter outside the window with a metallic "tink"...... oh yeah, the storm is coming.... hopefully it's spare the blooms on the dogwoods.... they've only been open for two days or so...... so they should still be strong enough to weather the thunderstorm....... I guess we'll find out.....

.... so, gentle rubberneckers, thus is my evening..... contemplating the fate of a few brand-new blossoms and watching what nature has in store for my little neck of the woods..... it should be quite a show.....

... in other news before I amble off towards the History Channel, I'd like to say that I enjoyed a very nice meal today with Big Stupid Tommy, another McMinn County blogger.... he and I worked our way through an absolute mountain of food this afternoon at the local Applebee's..... ole Tommy, he's good people......

... and with that, I'm off.... I hope that y'all's evening is half as good as mine is going to be..... I do love me some thunder and lightnin'.....

Bullshit So Far

Ah spring... I've seen a few vestiges here - some green in the garden (must take pictures!).

You and Tommy - now that must have been fun! I do adore Tommy (and you too) both of you are most excellent peeps. LOL.

I am continuing to envy your Spring. We saw snow fall today... It's not going to stick, but still. Snow. Bleh.

Now Dammit, quit telling folks how I'm good people. That's a hard rep to maintain....

Got spared most of the brunt of the storms on this end of the county.

Truth be told, I was something disappointed....

They are predicting snow showers here tonight. Mid-April. I so need to move south.

BTW, Tommy is good peeps.
