Why No I Have Never….

We all have that list.

You know, the one that starts with “I can honestly say I have not….”

And ends with something like “…..ridden a bareback bronc.”

While my list is very boring – I’ve never ridden a bareback bronc – it is, nonetheless, my list.

To the “I’ve never tasted octopus..” – until one night and yes,  it is as disgusting as it sounds.

I can now add, “I’ve never seen rain fall from a cloudless sky.”

Yesterday afternoon hubby stepped outside and then proceeded to call my name frantically.

“Come here, QUICK!”

Thinking the house was on fire and shoes might be a good idea I grabbed my flip flops and ran.



He pointed to the barbecue pit where big fat drops of rain were landing with a resounding “PLINK!” sound.

He looked up at the sky.

“Where is it coming from?”

Before looking I seriously contemplated his sanity.

Then I looked up.

The sky was bright blue and the nearest clouds were the puffy white cotton ball type.

Where indeed.

I looked towards the yard and the raindrops were becoming more numerous.

“Never seen that before. Have you?”

Hubby smiled, “Nope, but we can’t say that anymore now can we?”
