hi pat, the storm passed and was mostly rainless ... so our heroine is safe and now she can use that fine umbrella for shade :)...

hi barnburner, I've been following your illustrated story, I haven't commented because I thought it might distract from the flow ... In the most recent post, it's interesting how the shapes of the delicate leaves on the trees are echoed in the hair on Sean's chin ... Reading the story always brings to mind my father-in-law, who passed many years ago ... He was a famous illustrator and fine artist, I learned my skies from him (but fall far short of his example) ... He painted Westerns, and for each he had a little story, he never wrote them down, he just made them up as he painted, even the horses had something to say ...

We have had a lot of those ChinaPete. So much that we are going to build a storm shelter next year.
