      Thanks Bob your dudeness. My ex-boyfriend, Eric Fisher, just tweeted that your rainfall amounts this month are equal to last year’s rainfall from Jan 1 through August 2011. (I found out he’s way too young for me) (:

      • I am glad that I am just the right age. :-)

        He is right about the rainfall.

    Loved your weekend postcard. That flooring is a trip! And the Robin’s eggs. Ahhh. Life goes on within you and without you. So beautiful. And aren’t friends are a blessing?!!! The two legged kind, the four legged kind and the feathery variety. We are blessed to be surrounded by so much beauty and have such great friends. Om Sri Shakti

    I have a good friend almost like your “bff” that sits on a file cabinet in my sunroom. The only difference is the horns are stuck into its ear holes. It makes a great pet as it makes no noise and does not have to be fed, bathed, or provided for in any way, etc.

    On to Jodi’s house and yard – it’s really beautiful, rustic, pastoral, and bucolic, but the big question is HAS IT EVER FLOODED? Being that close to so much water would cause me great discomfort. Oh, did you happen to notice the repetitious redundancies over and over in my writing?

    I just have to know – was the neighbor’s floor designed by Hieronymous Bosch on a rare day when he was in a good mood, lol? Wow, M. C. Escher is it?

    Finally something serious – I love your new gravatar!!!!!!!

    • Hieronymous Bosch–he was Cat Stevens’s drummer, wasn’t he?

        No, but he did draw the “Garden of Earthly Delights” that appears on the 3rd & self-titled Deep Purple album, lol.

      Louis…. she’s pretty far off the lake AND up a little hill so she hasn’t ever flooded. We’re kinda big on water here in Michigan (: Hard to get away from it actually. Thanks for your kind words kind sir.
