Seven and a quarter inches of rain in the past couple
of days, and more to come. Wonderful really, unless a person spent a
majority of the early part of his year preparing ground for drought. The
Vegetable Garden this morning could be mistaken for Duck habitat.
There was a time when I might have
imagined today as being spent tooth and nail against others. And I
really should get out there before Turkey and Coyote get more than their
share. But I guess of two possible epitaphs, I'd prefer, "Struck by
lightning while gathering Blackberry," to "Drowned in his Bean Patch."
