Some of you know we don't get lots of rain out this way but did you know we actually do have a period of time we call the monsoon season? Usually it starts right about the 4th of July, well, it is almost the 4th so maybe it's just getting an early start. The funny thing is that @asylum sent an animated digital post card with a rain cloud just a few minutes before it started raining, isn't that funny? I really want to learn how to create animated images but for now I'll just play around with whatever I can do in xcel.

It has all to do with that animated card that @asylum sent you. I would not mind getting one myself but my need is of getting a gardener. (lol)

I hate gardening too, but I am too mean to pay a gardener.

@Asylum We have always depended on gardeners to do the difficult part and what has your unwillingness to pay a gardener have to do with my need of a gardener.I am confused

Wanna bet it means he's too stingy to pay a gardener @allknowing ? I'll bet if a gardener offered to do it for free he'd have no problem with it............

Storm mailed to Texas.
I am surprised that you did not use the original image to illustrate this discussion. Maybe someday technology will make such postcards a reality. That would certainly regenerate the interest inj postcards again.

I tried to respond to the comment you'd written earlier but Mylot crashed .... again When I got my connection back I couldn't find that comment I'd forgotten where I'd seen it dang dementia's gettin the better of me But thank you for reposting this ecard. I'd wanted to use a copy of it as a header but instead I used my sunflower as a way to try to send you some sunshine......I'm guessin you still ain't got sunshine tho.

I fell in love with putters way way back, of course it places well behind my love of furbabies and nature but still, I love em. Yep, we got 3 whole minutes of rain then lots of sandy winds. Mom's kitties aren't too happy with their accommodations right now but I'm glad they are here with me and not 18 miles across town in ma's back yard.

@rebelann always seems to come with those danged winds, don't't? sigh... we were fortunate, got nearly 1/4" 'f the wet schtuff o'er 'bout 3 hours. could'a used those winds today, but't least we t'weren't'n the upper 90's...although with the humidity one'd thought such. the neighbors pup aint too happy here durin' storms. she's a laundry room straight off her back yard 'n kept him'n their when such'd occur. my laundry room's barely big 'nough fer the washer/dryer'n freezer, lol. he's not fond'f cats, so's gotta stay out. he's a dog house, e'en opened my pottin' shed fer him. made him a fluffy bed so he'd be cozy. noperz, he lays by the livin' room window'n jest stares pitiful :(

Ugh-not look forward to all the rain that will be ours this season. Hope you learn what you want to learn about animated images.

Thank you, I hope I do as well I wish you could send some of that rain to the southwest, as it is CA is once again experiencing wildfires and they really could use a good deluge.

Ha! That is quite the coincidence! Enjoy the rain. I do hope that it is not in excess like the folks in West Virginia have been receiving.

we only got a 3 minute rain then lots of sandy winds. It's been a long time since we've gotten rain that lasted more than 5 minutes.

He sure is. It's a talent I'd like to learn but I'm not sure it's something I would catch on to. We each have our own talents and sometimes anothers talent isn't meant for us.

I didn't know you had a monsoon season. So far when they say it's going to storm in our area, it's pretty much missed us.

The only time we pay attention to claims of rain is when it's only at 20%, they never seem to get it right if they predict over that.

I did not know about your area had a rainy season! That rain cloud you received digitally is a nice coincidence and pretty darn cool.
