My inner Englishman.1
So, in common with my heritage, I am drinking hot tea in this hot SRQ weather. It is more refreshing than any cold drink.
To be sure I am drinking hot green tea with a trace of honey, not hot black tea with milk and sugar, but the effect is the same.
My inner Englishman. 2
A huge storm came rushing through my SRQ neighbourhood at about 5:35p.m. today: - thunder, lightning and very heavy rain.
After an hour the storm abated and the sun shone. The temperature had dripped about 19 degrees F.
The rain continued, but it was a gentle rain, filtered through evening sunshine.
So my dog Penne and I ventured forth, and walked through the sunshiney rain.
I loved it, and I felt that I was being very English.
That made me happy.
