Nice weather

Posted on Thursday, August 16, 2007 in Quickie


There are some advantages to weird Irish weather.

“We have not the reverent feeling for the rainbow that a savage has, because we know how it is made. We have lost as much as we gained by prying into that matter.” 
~Mark Twain

    Nope. Got nothing!

  2. Grannymar says:

    Of course there are!

    It gives us something to complain about.

    Why did you steal my Windmills?

  3. SID says:

    A quit yer whingein’. I just paid $24 a bale for lucerne hay because of the drought and use bucketted water from the shower to flush the toilets. Bloody water restrictions . . . haven’t seen a rainbow for yonks! I don’t even own an umbrella or a pair of wellys. *sob*

  6. Grandad says:

    You are sad SID – Mine’s bigger than yours?? And K8 is a girly girl?

    So they are right – there is gold in them thar windfarms…….

    I have to agree with everyone else in saying that it is a great picture. But what were you doing upon your roof?

  8. K8 says:

    Robert, at least we have happy ducks! This is the view from my computer room window. Our house is on the highest row looking down on the rest of the estate. This is neat because with the right binoculars, you can see all sorts of people doing strange things in the nip.

    Grannymar, this is true! Sometimes I think those windmills are a figment of my imagination… they dissapear a lot.

    SID… uhhh, is yours like a magic picture where if you stare at it long enough a rainbow appears?
    Windmills… I could’ve spat on ya!!!

    Baino, awwww :'(
    I guess the grass literally IS greener over here.

    Thanks Medbh! I’d never seen a hypotenuse rainbow before.

    Dad, you’ve a new place to send the tourists!! Send ’em swimming out to go leprechaun hunting…
