Today started as a normal rainy day.  By the way, I live in the Eugene/Springfield area of Oregon and we get a lot of rain.

(And, according to The Associated Press, Portland native Matt Groening, revealed that Springfield, which is just across the Willamette River from Eugene, is THE Simpson’s home town.  Yeah for Springfield.)

Okay…back to this morning.  I got up and it was raining.   Would I walk in the rain?  I started thinking about living in England where the brawley was part of your daily costume.  And, NYC, where I always carry a folding umbrella in my purse.  So, what was so awful about walking in a nice neighborhood in the rain.  Absolutely nothing.  With my purple umbrella, my purple rain jacket, and a pair of leather walking shoes, I set out.  I am so glad I did.  It was fresh and beautiful.  The birds were singing.  I did not get wet and it was easy walking with the umbrella.  Easy peasy…

Stay dry and healthy.
