Thanks for the suggestions Taxy, but it's not the mosquitoes that I have issues with (well I DO, but I have a repellent that works fine for those pests, plus I wear long pants and Himself's old white dress shirt over my T-shirt) it's ticks. They're tiny, unlike a 'squitter it's hard to tell you were bit, and the ones with Lyme disease can be serious trouble. When someone finds a way to immunize people or provide a decent repellent for ticks I'll be my usual worrying self.

Perfect by us too Bea! It can stay like this until a week before Christmas as far as I'm concerned.

Kylie, does it snow down there by you or are you close enough to the equator that you don't get any? Although from what I've inferred your more on the southern end of the continent, right?

It just got dark, and I hear lots of thunder. It is once AGAIN teasing like it will rain, but is not raining. It sounds so promising, but I don't want to get my hopes up.

The rain lasted 20 minutes! Now the birds are singing and the sun is trying to poke back out. This is the way the afternoons always used to be around here this time of year before we started having this awful drought. It is beautiful!

Yay!!! Glad you're all wet, Chopper!!!

We have a refreshing 67F, and it's raining just enough that Beagle would not like a walk. We'll wait till after Big Bang and see what it's doing then.
