Raindrops

I hate it when Colleen is right. She’s always predicting weather based on the weather report. When is the weatherman correct? Drat! Rain was predicted to fall right as the festivities began on Day 2.

And it did! Right on schedule. Right as predicted. When is the weatherman right?!

Uncanny! We went for pizza. Yes, we left. And, came back. The opening flag ceremony was just beginning. Few dancers were in attendance. Or, they were getting Chinese food? But the rains resumed – poured! There was a stampede to the exit.

Yup, raindrops… no one is getting their feathers wet. Do you wear your finest clothes in the rain? And, there was no audience.

“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”

I am glad we were gifted with a spectacular Day 1.


Just in time

Just as I was prepared to go with the above post, Jules sent me a pic of Noa in David’s old Halloween costume. (Can you say that ten times, fast?) And, she asked, “Can you find a picture of David wearing it?” Ha ha. My file system – database – is not so accurate as to pinpoint David, ladybug as key words. But I found “ladybug” and moved on to Halloween costumes of the same year. Does that make logical sense? And I got 13 shots. Yes, in the days of slide film, I shot parsimoniously. Gee, today, it would have been hundreds of shots of Noa. Jules bribed Noa with a lollypop to get her into the costume. The wedding dress as I recall was custom made for my brother John’s wedding in which Jules participated as flower girl. She wore that dress until it was tatters. The search took about 30 minutes. Gee, I am good! And, I am more organized than I thought myself to be.


Party

For some reason there were more people with odd costumes or hair at the sheep festival. Party! Party color! When did I become conservative? But, you dress like this and you beg me to look and notice you. Maybe I don’t get out enough these days.
