Re: Just a rainy day

LOL Chris, your day was not so very different from mine...I was out
in the rain digging plants until I got just too durn wet and finally
gave up.  Cannot find the pants to my 'rain suit'; Lord only knows
where I put them!  So, of course entire lower half got soaked.  It
wasn't as cold here, tho' - probably low 60s, so it wasn't that
uncomfortable until I was about totally drenched.
