Sounds deliberate to me! :lol:

Me and Naiomi (5yo daughter) had to walk a mile and a half to school in what can only be described as the wrath of Poseidon this morning! The walk is normally such a nice part of the day, but this morning I was practically flying her like a kite! :lol:

I was wondering that!
By the way. How long have you needed a licence to cycle?

:lol: That's what I get for being helpful! A few months ago I hired a van to help a friend move home. I got caught at a speed camera on the M4 in a 50 MPH zone. I must have driven about 800 miles that weekend. :roll:

Ayup All...

Isn't it AWFUL ! I went to London on Friday (My Birthday) to Photograph 'The Golden Hind' ship on Bankside, for an Upcoming Model Build on my Model site, and Boy ! did it persist. We were supposed to be Visiting a Model shop in Holborn, then going to the British Museum. But because It rained so hard, we only got as far as Holborn High St. and after four hours in the pub, (where DID all the time go?) had to call for the Wheelbarrows for me to catch my train ! A bt of a washout externally and Internally !

I carried on with UA, Tony, and am now near the end. Looks just like the weather to just sit back and turn the page... I feel just like the Golems under the sea... or were they Giants ?
I'm glad that all my problems have now Resolved down to where my next Banana is coming from...

We're supposed to be just partially cloudy now--but no highs above 100--and NO RAIN.

Last night, we got light drizzle out of the edge of a dilly thunderstorm, and there's a 30% chance of rain tonight when Tony's taking the shuttle down from the airport at Phoenix. :roll: I think he's bringing it with him! :D

I got soaked to the skin today... :evil: I don't mind rain. Acutally, I really like it, it gives a certain mood, but would someone just warn me first? I don't ask much, you know, like a choir of angels would do just fine, appearing in front of me out of nowhere in bright light, singing things like: "Don"t you dare leave without an umbrella, do you hear? And forget about the sneakers, put on your rubber boots even if you look ridiculous in them. You've been warned!"
Listen.

We had a tornado yesterday. Thankfully out in the open spaces, one school bus was flung about and into a cornfield, but only scratches and bruises.

This just does not happen at this time of year here.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

What can I say, this is Ireland. It's either damp and chilly or damp and mild, but nearly always damp, or really really wet. :x
