Days Without Sunshine

That wise philosopher Steve Martin once said: A day without sunshine is like, you know, night."

Well, Steve-a-reno, you must never have spent a week in Houston during a rainy spell! We've had a solid week of gray, rainy skies, and no sunshine at all.

The St. Augustine grass in the yard has become ghillie suits for the gazillions of mosquitoes that are hatching after all this rain.I hate to grouse about too much of a good thing after we had such a terrible drought last year, but, honestly, enough is enough!

Takeaway Truth

John Ruskin wrote: "Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."

Hmmm. Needless to say, Mr. Ruskin didn't ever travel to Houston either.
