Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head....

So....when did Tennessee get moved to Washington state? I snapped this picture of a double rainbow while it was still raining. That's why is not a very good picture. You can just barely make out the second rainbow.
I don't remember the last time I saw the sun. It reminds me of a short science-fiction story I read as a child. The entire story took place in a school room on some planet. Maybe it was Mars? Anyway, it rained constantly and the sun only came out every seven years. The main character was born on Earth and actually claimed to remember the sun. None of the other children believed her and teased her quite a bit about it. They had all been born on this planet and had never seen the sun. So, the day came for the rain to stop for a few hours and for the sun to come out. As it happened, the little girl ended up being locked in the closet by some children. They just meant to tease her, but ended up forgetting all about her when the sun came out. Of course, she missed her chance to play in the sun.
I'm sure there was a lesson for us all to learn in the story. Looking back on it now, I think it has a pretty simple point.
Don't let anyone ruin your chance to stand in the Sun!

Love your tale! If I could learn from this story and my sister, I would be unstopable!

Happy is the bride the sun shines on. The wedding was at 4pm and it stopped raining at 3pm. It was beautiful.

Hi Marge, We got tons of rain also on Friday and Saturday--but today was wonderful. It's actually going to get cooler here this week, so maybe Fall is really here now.
