Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Porch

When life gives you rain, make bottled water. Or some kick-butt pictures with your new Kodak Easyshare Z1015IS (#1 wrote that for my feeble old self).


When it rains, my son photographs.


Rain, rain, don't go away, we can't take photos any other day.


Don't take snapshots on my porch and tell me it's raining.


Oh, say can you see, by the afternoon light...
O'er the porch rail we watched...
Raindrops bursting in air...


It's raining H20 and squirrel heads.


Raindrops on Wolmanized lumber and squirrel heads on porches...


Sorry for the jarring ending to our good clean fun. I can't predict what may turn up on my porch next. Some days it's pretty, peaceful raindrops. Some days it's severed squirrel heads. Some days it's THE DEVIL, but I refuse to post his picture again.

In compliance with the Truth in Blogging Act, let me declare that this was NOT all one raindrop, but a series of fortunate precipitation events. The #1 son and I put them together like one of those test questions where you have to put the pictures in order. We're mighty bright, if I do say so myself. Mr. S. Squirrel Head appeared earlier this summer, and disappeared as abruptly as he arrived. The camera was new in June, when Travel Agent H took his vacation.

I do not claim that these photos are mine. #1 took them, and labeled them with my blog to punish picture thieves. Because that's the kind of dude he is.

Those raindrop photos are AMAZING!!! Your boy is quite the photography and tech wizard. There are careers that pay big money with that combination.

Those rain pictures are amazing!!! I wish I could capture images like like.

Your blog is great and I've been reading it daily. I'm an ex-Missourian.

He can do anything he wants, as long as he pushes me and my oxygen tank through the casino when I'm old.

Mrs. C,
Welcome. Then you know what I'm talkin' about, with your Missouri background.
