Rain, rain, go away...

Weather - Extended Forecast:
Today, Tomorrow, etc. RAIN!!!

It looks as though "Old Ma Nature" is trying to make up for lost time; there've been a lot of long dry spells in various places, droughts, etc. No longer. Too much of a good thing (or anything, for that matter) is, by definition, too much.

I'm not complaining about my own situation, because from where I am sitting it's merely an annoyance, in that it keeps me from riding my motorcycle. Mostly I'm thinking about the fact that now we have even more areas experiencing floods, and more people displaced from their homes. Driving home from my recent vacation this weekend, I heard about them on the radio. I realize it's still hurricane season, and I'm aware that precipitation comes along with that, but this year has been breaking records.

I can't wait until the kooks start up their caterwauling about that dreaded topic again: GLOBAL WARMING.

Yeah, right...

Not cold enough yet for the global warming crowd to caterwaul.

Welcome back, Jack. Looks like it's time for some folks to get to work on their "arks." Hope your vacation didn't get "rained out."

Actually, the weather was perfect for my week in Maine; it started raining after I got to the hiker get-together this past weekend, though.

So Camo, you've "come back again another day?"

Welcome back, dude.
I trust the hike was worth it.
So, you think it might rain?
We are running out of the English alphabet for names. Might have to go Greek.
Pat likes Greek.

Yes, I have. Unfortunately, so has the rain!

Pat'sRick©:
Thanks. I hiked to the Northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail under clear skies last Monday; it was also bright and sunny when I went through the Mahoosuc Notch...

Bla, you talked in my blog like you think I hadn't seen you went to New England :-D I read, just didn't comment...cuz I didn't know if you'd see it...then I was going to comment here, but wasn't sure...so lemme ask a question, seeing as how I don't know Maine at all, did you go anywhere near Pittsfield? I kinda...know somebody there :-p

Josh:
I passed right by Pittsfield, Maine on my way from Bethel to Millinocket and back, yes.

Anyway, you posted on your blog that you get no traffic...

I wasn't complaining, It's for a number of reasons, number one being, I'm not worth reading...fun to vent anyway though.

I know you laughed when you said that...That's nice, but don't patronize me camojack :-D

Josh:
Patronize you? Hardly. No laughing, then or now. Straight up...I think you are pretty sharp for someone your age; I was so unaware of the world at large when I was that young.
(No 'Net then, tho'...)

Exactly...:D

You lifted me up and put me down in one post...Touche...


I'm kidding by the way lmfao.

Yesss...we all have our little ups and downs. C'est la vie, non?

Or, to put it in a way consistent with the topic: "Into every life, a little rain must fall."

As far as I know, comments were closed on the last thread as of at least 7:50 this a.m. I figured Scott was posting something new, so I refreshed, and refreshed and refreshed and then went offline to do something productive. Just checked in....new post, NO Comments! AIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

How will I survive without the wisdome of Liarger, GasBag and Master of Hate, B.T.????!?!?!?!?

thanks, margeinmi,
I thought I said something wrong and got banned.
kabaij@comcast.net, for any you good folk who want to converse.
Thanks camo for the bandwidth.

Libby Gone™:
You've got mail. It goes something like this:
"I was thinking of asking Scott what was up with 'Face. It's probably like before, and he got fed up with the trolls AND people responding to them...something you'll never see me do there."

MargeinMI:
See above...

So! Your "camo" didn't work. You must have washed them. Should have had them dry-cleaned before the hike.

Mother Nature apparently thought your "hike" was a "Rain Dance".

Kajun:
I had no rain, nay, not one drop when I was hiking in Maine...

The direct consequences of your hike (rain dance), might have been the N E rain.

I think it more likely to have been Tammy's fault...

Is ScrappleFace toxic then, in your estimation?
(How 'bout recovering ScrappleFacers?)

October 18, 2005 11:42 PM

Camo,
No not toxic, but sometimes I did over indulge........

Libby Gone™:
A lot of people overindulged...in playing with trolls.

So now there's no more comment section over there...
