Water Water, Missoula, Montana

Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink….” 

Someone complained today about the unrelenting rain. Possibly someone  who fretted until last week about the ubiquitous forest fire smoke - which, thanks to the rain, is now fully cleared away. 

So, I said, "Quit your whining and be thankful you’re not still sucking ashes." 

KIDDING!  In loving memory of my gracious mother, I defaulted to polite, and merely mentioned the silver lining of no more smoke. 

But he stuck to his story.
So, what to say next? Nothing. Whiners gonna whine. And I have things to do.


  1. This photo required a couple minutes contemplation before I identified the subject. Great reflection and perspective.

  2. You're in good company - first thought from a co-worker was, "What kinda hood ornament is that?"


Your thoughts, please?
