Small Talk

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” 
― J.R.R. Tolkien

What’s that old fall back when you lack a good story to share?

Oh, yes! The weather…

On Thursday, I mowed and trimmed.

On Friday, I scrubbed the patio furniture free of bird droppings and green algae.

The bright faces of pansy, verbena, petunia, calla, and vinca will surely smile at our guests, if it doesn’t rain.

But clouds are gathering as I type, intending to water newly planted tomato seedlings and squash vines.

A 100% chance of thunderstorms at the exact afternoon hour I hand printed onto every party invitation, you say?

Rain is my live dragon.

Guess I’ll have to forge a friendship. :)
