A Weekly Offering of This n That

Rainy Day is my alter ego. She is the little angel that sits on one shoulder and whispers in my ear to forgo that 6" piece of triple chocolate fudge with the four scoops of ice cream on it; she is also the little devil who sits on my other shoulder and convinces me that I can eat just one bite of each and be satisfied, and then laughs with such great abandon when in fact, I eat the whole thing, she falls off my shoulder. Mostly, Rainy Day helps me see the humor in living and, mostly, she encourages me down the right path. Not necessarily the straight and narrow one (how fun is that?) but the path that offers the most adventure and fun.

Rainy Day Has Wrinkles!

NOTE: One person responded to last week's Big Question. Thank you, Shelley! I think you are probably correct, and will let you know once verified;-)

Rainy Day does not understand all the hoopla over wrinkle removers. Rainy D has wrinkles, and she's quite content. Yes, they make her look a bit older, but she remembers all the adventures that put them there--the near misses while traveling the Blue Highways, the trials (not to mention the tribulations) of raising two children. She remembers her Dearly Beloved Ex and the fun times they had at the beginning of their relationship. Oh, and the memories from Basic Training, and the memories from her jobs after the military. Yes, Rainy D is actually somewhat proud of her wrinkles, and really doesn't see a reason to go spend good, hard earned money to get rid of them.

Rainy D would rather spend that money on books! She doesn't have quite so many all over her house any more, but she still buys them. Rainy Day has come, kicking and screaming, into the electronic age – she has an eReader, and on that little, hand held computer, she has books, books, and more books. She even gets her favorite magazine delivered not to her door, but to her eReader! Why, Rainy Day can even read those books on her phone! Whatever is this world coming too?

Why should Rainy Day care about wrinkles? Her quilts don't care that she has wrinkles. Her animals don't care. Her kids never notice and her eReader only wants to be held, and now and again charged.
Even if she got rid of her wrinkles, Rainy Day is positive she would never have the beauty of Sophia Loren or Elizabeth Taylor – so she is content to stay wrinkled and be happy as she is. Unless, of course, by getting rid of the wrinkles, she might have a chance with the cute young man next door....
