ON THE BACK BURNER

June 21

I don't mind all of the afternoon rains we have been having. It 's fun, sorta. There is a certain camaraderie that exists when a bunch of strangers are standing under an awning waiting for the down pour to lessen , so we can run to our cars. I found that I really won't melt when I get wet. I also found that all of us under the awning have something in common. Our umbrella's are in the car. It isn't snow, it isn't cold, so being wet isn't such a bad thing. I used to love to run in the rain. There is something that identifies you as tough when other runners see you running in the rain. But then again, I ran when it was so cold that my eye lashes would freeze. The operative word here is "meshugana" crazy . Rain in Florida , in June , is like a warm bath. You get wet but you are not refreshed.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
