Waking to rain

Last week, some people said they were tired of our months of unusually dry, sunny weather. They were eager for fall. I wanted to hit them. Both yesterday and today, I woke to rain. The word dreary--for the next five months--comes to mind and nobody does dreary like Poe.


Once upon a morning dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary
Over many a quaint and curious dog toy of forgotten form
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
" 'Tis some Airedale," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door:
Wanting breakfast, nothing more."

  1. OMD! That is so funny, and, so true!! Just love the 'Poe poem'!!
    Oh, it's been raining off and on here for the past week, and NO I am not lookin' forward to the rainy season, especially since it is suppose to be an 'El Nino' winter, which usually means, IT'S GONNA RAIN ALOT!! Ma doesn't like goin' out in the rain that much, so fewer 'extra' walkies.....not happy at all.

    Kisses,

  2. Um.....I admit I am one of those that you speak of...and I'm sure you will remind me of this when I start complaining of the rain after a few months.

    Have a nice weekend my friend! xo

  3. I agree! Poe has the knack for writing about dreary subjects! I hope you get some sunshine soon!
    By the way, have you sent your mailing address to misskitty32504ATyahooDOTcom yet so I can mail your Silly Saturday gift to you?
