The Rain, and a Book

Soft guitar and piano music issue from my stereo, and its accompanied by the sound of hard rain. As the old timers used to say, it rains cats and dogs.

The combination of the music and rain is good for the soul and offers a gentle caress to tangled nerves. Now, if only I could concentrate on my book. This is a perfect day for the written word and a good cup of fresh hot coffee, almost.

I'll read a few lines and then the chatter of my lovely wife and my MIL intrude.

I've just slapped my book down in frustration. A man needs to know when he's whipped and display a white flag. So, I'll write a bit and read your blogs instead.

Standby, I shall visit soon.

  2. Ah, then you need a bolt hole (I think that's they call it). Or a Boar's Nest.

  6. Stephen,

    I have to go with Muddy Valley. Put the ear plugs in, then turn your music on = no more hear chatter :-)

  8. You're a good man to do this for your wife. A lot of men wouldn't.

  9. My two favorite times to read: When it's cold with a fire roaring and when it's raining. Unfortunately, in Texas I have to read a lot when it's not my favorite time. :)
