The sun

Wow, the sun shines this morning!  It's been a number of days since I have seen it here.  Am having the front stairs repaired and, when I got home from TN on Saturday, there the guys were, in the rain, working away.  They were going to come back yesterday to finish but we had no power so they couldn't cut anything.  The power outage lasted about 4 hours.  About two of those I was down at the pond clearing the pipe.  I had cleared it before I left for TN but knew that it would need to be done again because of the rain.  Sure enough.  I was smart enough to take my waders down.  The water level was about 3 feet above normal.  It took a while but I finally got it clear enough that the water was getting "flushed".  I went back in the afternoon and it was almost at normal level.  Hopefully the rain will stay away for a few days so everything can dry out, including my new stairs.  When all is done we'll have to wait for the wood to dry out before pressure washing (yep), letting it dry again, then sealing.
Y'all have a good day and remember:  It's hard t be nostalgic when you can't remember anything.

Tell me more of this thing you call "the sun."

Rains every day lately. Oh well, not much I can do about it.

Glad you made it back home in one piece...and that you finally got some sun!

Here we got promises but no rain. Typical!

Sixbears: it's that yellowish disc in the sky that is bright and sends heat. We see it every now and then lately but mostly we've had rain.

Jim: I'll try to send the wet stuff your way.
