I Can't Stand The Rain

Wow, that's something I never say... I love the rain. I just don't like driving in it, which is exactly what I'm about to do. Mr. J and I are going to Midtown to a microbrewery place, he likes that sort of thing. I don't like much alcohol myself, I will drink an occasional beverage, but I'm mostly the weirdo who, when asked for my drink order, will respond "UN-SWEET Iced Tea Please" (smiling). I know it's virtually unheard of in the South, but then so am I. Guess that makes us a good match! ha-ha.

It's been a rather quiet after Thanksgiving weekend so far, and we normally have stuff going on Saturday nights but that got canceled. So we are going to dust up the highway through the droplets of chilly rain to see what's going on in Midtown.

I have felt pretty good today actually, and have had happy thoughts of Christmas and am actually beginning to look forward to it... Hope to put some of the magic back in these holidays... I think it can be done. I'll leave you with this great soul video of one of our Memphis girls... Here's to you Ann!!! No it's not "I Can't Stand The Rain", it's another one of my favorite Ann Peebles songs.

I can forgive you for being a non-drinker...but I got about as far as unsweetened ice tea and could read no more! And you call yourself a southerner! Hmph!

LOL! :)

I'd rather drive in the rain (seated inside a nice dry car), than stand outside when it pours down on me...

I don't like driving in the rain either - largely because many others around seem to ignore the fact that you need more distance to stop and they scare the b'Jesus out of me by going too fast too close to the other cars.
