What's So Great About Being Dry?

"I hate the rain!"

As I wait for the bus home,
I huddle under my umbrella.
But, Sophie turns hers upside down.

"You're all wet!" I say.

"What's so great about being dry?"

~ Margaret Park Bridges
May this weekend find you enjoying all the beauty our changing weather brings. Stormy weather or bright, sunshine or rain; I hope you spend some time outside. What's so great about being dry anyway?

The quote above comes from the wonderful, whimsical book I Love the Rain by Margaret Park Bridges, which you can preview or buy here. The image is from the National Geographic photograph series I mentioned here.

What a wonderful place you have here. I'm delighted that you paid a visit to mine.

And, yes - splishing, sploshing and splashing are among our favorite activities on days like this.
