Typical Californians in the Rain

Driving home tonight C says "oooo, lookie. Rainbow". So of course I whip out the camera and start taking pictures.

The super cool double rainbow was, of course, on HIS side. And, I'm a teeny bit possessive of my camera. Every time he tries to "borrow" it, I pout. Big time pout. I can't help it. I love that camera. And I've never had any real "thing" of my own that is just mine. Very selfish and immature, but well...what can I say.

So on my side of the car is the weak rainbow:


Which you can barely see here....and on his side is the super cool one:

I got a little bendy being selfish and refusing to give him my camera in order to get this.

After we got home, we decided that we had to go to the grocery store. We were out of a lot of stuff, like food. Our cabinets contained a package of novelty pop corn and some Oreos. Not exactly things one can make a meal out of while sober. Or even drunk.

When we got to the store C noticed how cool the sky looked with all of the rain clouds. I ran with the camera all over the parking lot while he found himself a bench to sit on.

When we came out of the store, it was raining. Not only raining, but full thunder and lightening. It's just so dang rare to have that happen in September, AND not at 3 a.m.

C and I love weather. We stood out there in the rain yelling "DO IT AGAIN! DO IT AGAIN!" at the lightening.

When we got home I tried the consective shoot thigie on the camera and got a bit of a bolt:


And I'd like to point out *cough*OTTER*cough* that this picture would have been SOOOO MUCH BETTER if that damn poodle palm tree wasn't in my way.

Ok Zoom, lemme ask ya a question - Why are there so many songs about rainbows?

ZooooM said...

Ok Al, thanks for making me snort laugh.

...and what IS on the other side?

The Management said...

Actually Al...we tried to call all the rainbow songs once... there really aren't all that many...

You got "Over the..." and what else? Maybe one or two. Kermit lies.

Zooom... you know why you took that last picture... either you secretly LOVE the Palm tree, or you got a thing for large phalic objects hoging up the foreground.

My money is on you liking the MIGHTY PALM!

hmmmmm the long line of musical questions - I'm still stumped on why someone would bother to drive a chevy to the levee and once you got there, whey would it matter if the damn thing were dry.

BTW - who the heck knows who billy joe threw off the tallahachee bridge
