For My Rain-Loving Compatriots

The weather people are extolling with greet glee that today will be a day
with "abundant sunshine".

They say this as if everyone within their listening or viewing range will fall to their knees in gratitude and joy upon hearing such a declaration.

Some of us know they are wrong. Not everyone is elated by abundant sunshine.  Some of us find it rather oppressive.

"Unfortunately", the weather people say, tomorrow will bring showers and possibly storms (completely ignoring the building drought situation in our region).
Sun days = fun days and that's what really matters.

Here are some resources and graphics for those of us who disagree:

I'm A Big Sell Out

So my new little shop has basically sold out. It took 10 days. We definitely didn't expect this.

Oh, there's still some little stuff there but a bunch of the other little stuff has sold and the big pieces of furniture have sold and I haven't been there since Sunday so I imagine it kind of looks like this except for the yellow hutch cabinet which sold and is no longer there:


Crazy great, that is!
