Getting a substantial rain event right this minute. Had other rain last night. And some yesterday morning. And more the night before. The "esteemed, elite" weather prognosticators, had assured us that this summer in these parts would be much hotter than normal and under a severe drought condition. WRONG! Again. Probably learned their craft from the same sort of "elite" types who, back in the 1980's, confidently assured us that New York City and Washington, D.C., would be under water as a result of the rising seas caused by CAGW, "Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming" that all the "smart kids", like the imbecile Al Gore, just knew was coming. Oh, that underwater thing? Was supposed to be by the year 2000. Did I blink and miss it? That was part of the same bunch, perhaps a splinter group, who loudly told us that snow in England would cease after 2004. Also hasn't happened. At all.
We still have the waif kitten, she's on the floor by my chair, mewing plaintively. The adult male cats, both of them, who have been with us for years, are hiding under our bed and not coming out. Since yesterday morning. The came up on the bed in the middle of the night to have their ears and chins scratched, etc., but did not even come out for the early morning feeding. And still haven't. I've heard of being, ah, "whipped", but this is ridiculous. Anyone want a 3-4 week old kitten? Please??
The Old Testament reading is Psalms 62, 63, and 64
The New Testament reading is chapter 1 of Paul's letter to the Romans. This is good stuff!!
