My morning was spent in the usual way - catching up on my blog reading and typing out today's post. I was almost finished when the storm hit. Right as I thought, "Gee, I better save this." Crack! And the electricity blinked. The rain poured out of the sky. I lost my whole post. I am sure it was the best I have ever written, but it is gone. Now the day has begun and art class is coming up. Maybe I will try again later. Maybe I will kick myself again. At least we got another good rain, but we've been getting lots of rain lately. And the wind...Aieee (as Buck would say).
I will tell you that yesterday we went to The City because Toby had a dr's appointment. After the appointment, we went shopping. Toby needed new "girl britches". He got four new pair of trousers and two new shirts. Hey, isn't Mother's Day coming up? We met Bo, Sara, the Wild Thing, and Sweet Nell for supper. It was a good trip. On the way home, we were listening to Oldies when we heard Janice Joplin sing "Me and Bobby McGee"(one of my favorites). It reminded me an old friend, Susie McHand. First, it reminded me of Susie because she told me once that she had skipped school to attend a Janice Joplin concert. Second, it reminded me of Susie because like the song somewhere along the way, I let Susie slip away. She was a good friend and we had some good times, but I lost track of her - something I regret. When I have more time, I will tell you some "Susie Stories". I like to think that I was a mountain woman, but Susie was the real thing. Intrigued?
