Thoughts for a rainy day …..

Hello my friends,

Are you keeping dry this Saturday?

Wow, unbelievable all the rain that has fallen both in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

We need a huge sponge to hold it all.

My dog Alvin wanted to go out several times this morning ….. until I opened the door.

Then he sniffed ….. and walked back inside.

Finally when I knew he “really needed” to go outside ….. he gingerly stepped out.

He walked onto the deck …… holding one paw up in the air.  LOL.

Finally he gave up (as it is pouring) and walked on all four.

As much as we love the rain ….. aren’t we lucky that we can use the “facilities” inside ……

I do however, remember the day when we had to go out to the “out house” …. what a name?

I mean really ….. it might have looked like a small house but the aroma was another thing.

How many remember those days?  Some of those little houses had a piece of lino on the floor ….

some might have added a pine air freshener hanging on a nail ….. while others were bare ….

We always thought ourselves blessed to have the soft rolls of paper .

Sometimes catalogues or newspapers…. yuck.

Well it is time for me to sign off….. I shall continue this later.

I hope that wherever you are ….. that you keep warm and dry.

Enjoy your Saturday …. and remember that we have it so GREAT these days and should feel for our little dog friends

that have to go outside…….  Keep a nice towel by the back door …..

Always, Carol
