Sunday Straphanger Rainy Wales

I'm under the weather here with lots and lots of rain and thunderstorms.  I remembered this postcard showing a happy(?) family getting their photo taken on a trip to Wales (noted for raining often there) and decided to show you.

It's now too muddy to work in the yard.  Last week we went from 30's at night with a frost that took all the forsythia blooms, to 80's, to 60's and it's muggy throughout!   The grass and the dandelions are growing like gangbusters. 

Robins, males I presume, are attacking our cars with their droppings and we are having to hose them (the cars, not the robins) down even with all the rain, their presents remain!  I see the robins pecking at their reflections in the car windows, too.  It must be some territorial mating game but, hey, don't they know glass from feathers?!   I covered the outside car mirrors with bags to stop the birds from seeing their reflections and that helped a bit.  But, the side windows and windshields are still in the Bullseye!  Yuck!!!

Still, we are not having the horrible times that many thousands of people are having due to the Mississippi River flooding and the tornadoes.  I hope that they get some help and some relief and lots of it very, very soon.
