BEATING THE RAINS??
TUESDAY EVENING AUGUST 17, 2010
Scooter Trip, Day 1 and I sit here in a beautiful South Florida village visiting my daughter. At the moment she is out taking one of her several dogs to school. He is taking a test tonight in front of all the other dogs at school. He is going to sit, when he hears the word "SIT", and stand, etc., at the command "STAND".
Bloody hell, I could do those actions even before school...but never on command--grin!
So I am eating some really good hor'd'ourves as daughter is a GooooD cook! These munchies are spectacular! I will put out the recipe if she will allow it.
First hour of riding I was being followed
By Lightning, Black clouds and Thunder.
It gave me again to witness the awesome
Power of our Creator--and wonder...
Yeah! Okay. I gotcha. The non-story:
This was again one of those gigantic monster-storms we get almost daily in South Florida. And I can tell you that storms do NOT move only at 15-20 miles-per-hour. This one was moving, really coming AFTER me
on I-75. It was, like...tracking me down. Now and then I saw a few drops hit my visor, and one moment I tasted a wet mosquito--decided to stop yawning--grin! (Yes I swallowed the bug. OK?)
What made this exciting for me was the fact that I had not any of my saddle bags or luggage pieces fitted yet with rain-wear. Also me, not rainproof. Now I was going 84-88 m/p/h to beat this storm, and each time I looked back (dangerous, BTW!) there they were--sheets and sheets of driving rain, raining GAINING on me. Brightly colored flaky clouds up ahead. I went in that direction.
One hour later I looked back, and all the sky was blue, dotted with fluffy, friendly white puffs. I beat the storm--on a scooter! How about that?
OK, I was going to give y'all some recipes for some delicious handfulls of stuff everyone will enjoy. You may not enjoy them as much as I--for I just discovered that all these handfulls of sweetest treasures can be purchased in any food market. It is all stacked neatly in bags and boxes in aisle #23 DOGGIE TREATS AND PET FOOD!
...and if there is any doubt...well, YESSSS, I am still sober. Today.
I'm loving you today, Peeps!
Knowing that God allows you all His PEACE. Today!
Just no time to make comments,
but I'm reading most blogs, and
LOVING your responses.
Thank you Soooo much!!!
