Rain Arrives On Tuesday

As Forecast(ed)

One of the fun things about writing this blog is looking at words and wondering should it be this way or that way.

I do get the chance to look up some words to determine if I remember them correctly as representing one idea or another. It's very simple with the computer.

How they looked on Monday

Tonight, I have included photographs from Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. That sentence in itself is an example of what I mean by looking up to see how these things are supposed to go.  Put in the extra comma behind Monday or not?

Actually, whether to put the comma after Monday in, “Sunday, Monday and Tuesday”, is up to the person doing the writing. That's good to know.

The quest for a newer car continues. I have seen a couple of possibilities that upon a closer look were not in good shape. The search goes on.

I've been seeing a lot of new birds in our neighborhood. They've been sort of drifting in, over the last month or so. Some of them seem to enjoy my company. That's nice.

There is an interesting sign posted out in front of Trader Joe's regarding the sidewalk solicitors outside the doors. I should've taken a picture. Maybe next time.

Basically it stated that Trader Joe's doesn't encourage or support the people that are petitioning or gathering signatures out in front.They advised that we should feel free to ignore them when entering and exiting the store.

I think the sign worked. The people collecting signatures for petitions were gone.

When I have examined some of the the petitions closely, they don’t seem to be about issues actually being legislated, but instead are designed to get people to write down their names, addresses, and phone numbers. The people collecting the signatures aren’t always from around here, either. Signers beware.

Great video. What perfect sounds, music, for mushrooms. Calm, stable and magical (an overused word).
A contemplation, meditation.
Thank you.

After thought: when one is referring
to people it is best to use "who" rather than "that."
