Call me Noah.

I'm looking to buy a few cubits of gopher wood and some ark-building plans. What do you think, Home Depot or Lowe's? Who has the best price on gopher wood, currently? I forgot to check my weekend sales circulars.

Seriously, we're floating away here. Glub, glub. I know we need the rain, being several years into a nasty drought cycle, but hot damn--do we have to have it all at once? I'm feeling quite damp. Moist, even. (Eww.) I don't want to give anyone nightmares (Stefanie), but my backyard has apparently turned into a mushroom farm. My delicate 86-pound Doberman doesn't like to get his dainty paws wet, so every time I have to literally drag him out into the yard to do his business. I'm standing out there like a fool, soaking wet, saying "Look, Pudge...I'm out here and it's not hurting me!" (Yes, I always enjoy giving my neighbors even more reason to doubt my sanity.)

"Rain, rain, go away, come again another day." Like in AUGUST.

Hee. I love it when I'm just innocently reading someone else's blog post and then suddenly I see my name. Call me an attention whore, but it does make me smile. :-) And smiling is important when you're talking about mushrooms AND using the word "moist." Double ick!!!

Um, hope you dry out soon!

stef, glad to make you smile. I take it, though, that you're not interested in being invited for a moist mushroom gathering party? ;)

praying you don't float away as long as you pray we don't blow away to kansas.
