ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct 7

I am sure that many cities think they are  very clever when they say that if you wait 15 minutes, the weather will change. We said that in Chicago. I can say that here in PT and be speaking truthfully. It was beautiful all day,sun shining,little wind, blue sky, perfect. In a  blink, the sky turned grey and it began pouring,and pouring. I didn't get a chance to pull in a tent that  I was trying to assemble in the yard. I made a donation only trip to Goodwill,but as a courtesy to them, I felt that I needed to go in. In a pile of sport equipment and miscellaneous stuff,I saw a small nylon sack for $3.99 That is my top dollar for these impulse purchases. I could tell that it had to be a tent or a canopy. It is a Colman tent,with all of the poles and nails  ,intact ,also in a small sacks. Out of the sack, back at home, it looks pretty big. I never got it up because I couldn't figure it out, so I left it spread out in the yard,until my son came home. It was sunny. In another second, it was pouring and my deconstructed tent got quite wet. I got it back in the pod, but I had a trail of water from the door to the bathroom. Maybe it will be dry tomorrow and I can learn how to put it up and take it down. It's a great buy.

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.
