  20. Hi Cat,
    Glad you had some rain! You are quite welcome to have some of ours, it hasn`t stopped raining here for most of July, still we had such a dry Spring we needed it. Yesterday it rained so much that over 400 litres of water was put into my water butts!

  23. Thanks all for celebrating this wonderful, although short lived, rain!! This photo was completely spontaneous making it that much more special to me. Even though they are growing up, they aren't too old to play!

    @PatioPatch...oh, how I would love to feel some autumnal temps right about now! Gonna have to go on vacation for that!

    No, no new camera but I've been trying to improve my skills so a big, heartfelt thank you for noticing!!

  24. Hey Cat,
    K told me it didn't rain in Round Rock :(
    He was totally surprised. I guess you got really really lucky! Did you get more?
    Take care, Sandra

  25. I am so glad to hear that you got some much needed rain. The boys look like they are having so much fun. LOL!

  26. @Sandra, it was spotty...some got up to .5 inches, others nothing. We ended up with 1/10th to 2/10ths - not much. But man did it smell good! Sorry K didn't get his share.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
