Wondering in the Rain

We had epic rainfall this afternoon. I stayed snug on our porch, looking out and wondering at the big drops as they beat against the ground.

I wondered, too, what the tortoise who lives in our garden thought of it all. He seized the moment for a stroll up and down our driveway.

Jesse, missing you on this side of the globe. The Russell kids are here for the night. Seems weird to not have all the Borden and Russell kids on a night like this. xx

Pam, we are well except Arusha seems a little less fun without you here :-(

Hey Lisa, according to the BBC George Bush is visiting Arusha on his travels of Africa. You should try and grab a coffee with him

Good idea, Brian. He's supposed to be here on Monday. I'm just looking over my agenda to see if I can squeeze him into my day.
