20 Claps of Thunder

20 Claps of Thunder

20 claps of thunder

19 kids are shouting

18 streets are flooding

17 lanes rerouting

16 lights are flashing

15 horns that blow

14 sirens wailing

13 weather men didn’t know

12 umbrellas going up

11 old ladies fall down

10 times zero yards mowed

   9 fender benders in town

   8  tornado watches

   7 cars skidding by

   6 people wearing raincoats

   5 birds in the sky

   4 baseball games cancelled

   3 little wet dogs barking

   2 trees blowing in the wind

   1 afternoon sky darkening


Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed? Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude. By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up). Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
