  1. A good morning to everyone.

    I really mean that good. It rained for over three hours yesterday evening. I can't remember the last time I saw it rain for anything like that long. And I did see it because even after it got dark, I kept turning on the outside light so I could look at it.

  2. Yay for Andi's rain!

    Boo for Maria being brainless and drinking a quad shot latte yesterday morning. It was yummy, but guess who didn't sleep all night? Bah. Normally, not a bad thing, but since I have to mime today, not so brilliant of an idea. Ah, well.

    Little sis is having surgery today - she has a bad bone spur in one of her feet that is pressing on an artery & on a nerve. Surgery is supposed to take about 90 minutes, and then she'll be home & off her feet for at least a month. Since she's a librarian, she's all stocked up with books & DVDs.

    Busy, busy day yesterday, so it went by rather fast. I'm expecting much of the same today.

    Happy Friday!

  3. That's wonderful news Andi. So happy you had a good rainfall. :-)

  4. Andi, I KNOW, we got it too, I almost slept in the yard last night.

    Condolences to Larry, best wishes to Maria's sister, and apologies to Nicola for the boorish behavior of our guests in her country. Happy day to you all!

  5. Andi, great about the rain.

    Maria, sorry about the caffeine and best to Laura. Please let us know how the surgery goes.

    Hi to all and a happy Friday!

  6. It's Friday? I can't keep track. Yay for rain, boo for caffeine, best wishes for surgery. I'm going thru Olympics withdrawal. And my move should be pretty painless, andi, as moves go, since it's just down the road. But we'll see.

    Struggling with a headache that's on hour 21. Might have to break down and take something for it....

    Creeping back into my hole - TGIF, y'all!
