|On the 'new' patio, just hours before the infamous rain storm!|
The storm started about midnight. Naturally Rums needed to bark at the thunder - all night long. My mother had not believed me about the little monster and his barking at the thunder. She does now. I was tired. The sofas on the porch are wonderful. The lightening was a spectacular show that night. I wanted to sleep one of the sofas and watch the lightening over the mountains.
I put a pan where I was sitting, and went back to the other room and gave up, turned on reruns of I Love Lucy, then the early news. I put few pans in other places, but missed on on the other sofa. The rain continued well into the morning, turning everything into England green. The previous day it had been New Mexico dead and dying. It now looks like Jamaica!
Later in the morning, after Maggie arrived, I was in the kitchen with my mother. So was Maggie. APR, now dressed for the day, comes into the kitchen. He's now wearing pull-on Depends. Doesn't phase him in the least. He just stands there, looking at my mother.
"My pants are wet and I didn't do it. I sat on the sofa where it had leaked."
You know, you just gotta' laugh. It was funny.
