The Wet.

Has struck.

It’s been raining here since the early morning hours. I’m not talking cloudburst or anything, just continuous water falling from the sky. Falling and falling and falling. Water dripping from the eaves, running down the gutters, meandering down the paving. Wish I could catch it and store it somewhere for use when the sky is as dry as bone and as blue and scorching as a flame.

My poor garden dude is here – rocked up at 6:52, and he can’t do a single thing. He might wait for the rain to stop and then carry on with what he can, but he won’t be able to mow the lawn in any case – grass is way too wet for that.

The young man that’s supposed to come in and clean the house is not here yet – we’ll see if he can keep his word for once – hopefully I scared some sense into him last week 😉

I will have to brave the maul today – won’t have another chance this weekend. Tomorrow I’m meeting my ride at 7 am at the meeting spot for the toy run, which reminds me, I have to get the toy out of hiding and out in the open lest I forget it! Back to the maul though, might be slightly wet, and so, even less of a fun thing to do. Alas. There’s nothing for it but to forge ahead 😉 Maybe it will be quiet because it’s wet outside!!


Hope your Saturday is a good one 😉

The Whole Truth

At school, Little Johnny was told by a classmate that most adults are
hiding at least one dark secret, and that this makes
it very easy to blackmail them by saying, “I know the whole truth.”

Little Johnny decides to go home and try it out. He goes home, and as
he is greeted by his mother. He says, “I know the
whole truth.” His mother quickly hands him $20 and says, “Just don’t
tell your father.”

Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home from work, and
greets him with, “I know the whole truth.” The
father promptly hands him $40 and says, “Please don’t say a word to
your mother.”

Very pleased, the boy is on his way to school the next day when he
sees the mailman at his front door. The boy greets him
by saying, “I know the whole truth.”

The mailman immediately drops the mail, opens his arms, and says,
“Then come give your daddy a great big hug!”

    • The rain was indeed lovely,
      Of course I think Centurion is flooding again, but hey, I’m on a rise 😉
      As for the maul, yes well. Was done with my things by 10. Waited for the kid and the family until 11, but it was a good morning 😉
      Hope your weekend is also cool 😉

  1. Raining all day here (now three o’clock in the afternoon). One disgruntled dog curled up nearby, and letting out the occasional huffing noise to remind me she hasn’t had a walk.

    Your joke made me laugh 🙂

    • As long as it’s just a huffing noise – and not a green smell too 😉
      My dogs are very wet – they don’t seem to grasp the concept of staying under cover when it rains – and they’re not inside dogs at all.
      Glad you liked the joke 😉

  2. I was so glad it stopped raining. I’m a highveld person, I can’t stand the continuous rain. A thunderstorm must come and go. Plus I had a kiddie’s party to get to, that wouldn’t have been much fun in the rain 😉

    • The soft, ongoing rain is VERY good for my garden, so I don’t mind it too much.
      Just hope it’s relatively day tomorrow, otherwise my bike trip will not happen!!
      As for the kid’s party, yes, rain is not a good thing for a horde of youngsters!!
