Rain...

..... the world is wet here today.... the earth is brown and moist...... and every leaf is green and slick...... the air is warm and smothering....

.... the rainstorms last night stayed out late.... and from the appearance of my back yard, they popped the cork on a bottle of Patron, and partied out there until daybreak.... finally wandering off to the east as I stumbled around the kitchen looking for coffee this morning.......

.... thank Mother Nature for small gifts, I guess..... at least I can't mow the lawn today....

... in other news, I procured two pounds of sirloin tips yesterday.... and the intention is to create a steak pie for dinner that'll be so good that if you were put a dollop of it on top of your head, your tongue would knock your brains out trying to get to it.....

.... mmmm.... puff pastry, rich brown gravy, mushrooms..... chips..... and tender hunks of dead cow...... certainly not the best cure for a rainy, rainy day.... but it'll work in a pinch....

.... the Weatherman predicts thunderstorms for the next five days, actually..... which might put a dampener on our plans to catch Hamlet this Saturday night in Knoxville.... Shakespeare in The Park might just get rained out..... and while watching a bunch of soggy actors does sound appealing in its own right, I certainly don't fancy it enough to stand around holding an umbrella all evening....

.... then again, a peal of thunder might be just the thing to crank a production of Hamlet up a notch or two.....
