Thunder and Rain






 I can think of several advantages to not caring in the least who wins a basketball game. For instance, this morning is still a lovely morning around my house, but, as I took a quiet walk I saw signs of a  subdued village. There are hopeful banners in store windows, demanding that some team make mincemeat of another team. Someone must have spent hours decorating for this desired victory. Now someone will spend the same amount of time solemnly scraping off the paint.





Thousands bought  T-shirts they won't want to wear anymore. . . and multitudes of Oklahomans will recover from stress brought on by suspense, indignation, and outrage. A myriad of enemies in far away Florida will name their infants Le-Bron or Jamey....



Ah well. It's still a beautiful moisty morning out here in Western Oklahoma!
We had thunder yesterday ...and then rain.  Life is Grand!

There is something great about rain. I remember one Christmas in South Australia when everyone was expecting to have their Christmas celebrations outdoors in our summer, it rained and my wife and I went for a long walk getting drenched in the warmth and loved every minute of it.

...as somebody near and dear to us says, "And yet, somehow, life goes on." :)

The photos are just gorgeous, by the way.

Yep, life does go on. I know that some people get so wrapped up in sports-I don't happen to be one of those people...

On the bright side-wow! The landscape looks great! What a blessing and difference rain truly makes!
