It's Raining Cats and Dogs!

When I got up this morning to let my little doggie out...who by the way, took one look outside and stuck his little poodle nose up in the air and ran back inside... I knew it was going to be this kind of day...Rain boots!

This was the view from the back patio of my store when I got here....yikes! I'm glad I wore my boots!

You can't have a building that is over 135 years old and not have some "issues"....sigh...

Not to worry though, because soon I had all the lamps on and some of my favorite girl friends here singing with me as I put all the buckets out...Alison Krauss, Nora Jones, and Etta Jones....
