That’s funny right?
Dogs can’t be sarcastic… they don’t even have thumbs. Right?
Lemme tell you a story about Rhoda, the dog.
My wife and I were married in 1974. She came with a dog. You guys know the drill right? “Love me, love my dog?”
The dog’s name was Rhoda and she was a black lab mix.
If I came home from work and hugged my wife the dog would get in between us. Separate us. Try to keep us apart. She would say things like, “Stay away from her till you’ve got something to offer. You’ve been at work all day. Why are we still poor?”
Eventually though, I won her over and she began to pick on Edna, my wife.
One night Edna and I were going out to a big soiree that…

Facing the worst drought in decades we needed the heavens to open up and unleash her moisture. These good storms come with a price. The destruction left in the wake of such good storms is innumerable. From the insignicant planters and pots that were whipped around and shattered in the backyard to the grounded ships that dot the shores. It is a coin flip but, regardless of how that coin lands it still has both sides. Can’t really have a one sided coin can you? You have to try and stay alfoat. She took this picture of the boat just as I was leaving in the plane. I looked out the aircraft’s windows and swore I could see her snap the shot. The craft struck shore and stayed there.

If it’s a weekend, I will laze about in my jammies, catch up on the blog and watch chat shows on television.
An enormous traffic jam will happen somewhere on the M6.
Someone will give birth.
Someone will die.
Mr Shouty Man will sit on the wall outside my house, shouting to himself before he walks to the park and shouts some more.
Old friends will meet for lunch.
My bus will be late and then three of them will turn up all at once.
Someone will be released from jail.
A teenager will disappoint their parents.
A parent will disappoint their child.
Someone will do something that they regret.
Epic movies will be made.
Beautiful music will be composed.
Someone will get finally get their ‘big break.’
