A river runs through it

Aaaahhh! Rain (and some hail)! Finally. We are just so dry here in this part of Oklahoma. And we just don't have the type of landscape that can be without rain for this long. I've been noticing lately all of the ponds that are used for watering cattle and horses are nearly dried up. Since I don't have first hand knowledge about the status of the ponds, my first thought is that maybe they are draining them for some reason. But.. everyone at the same time? So, it must be the lack of rain.

A few years back when we were continually getting rain, I named the path that the rainwater runs in our backyard "A river runs through it" because that's what it reminds me of. Well, "A river runs through it" is flowing again today. It won't last long but it's great to see it again.

Oh and Dale.. if you read this, I finally planted those rollout flowers that mother bought me a few years back and they are starting to sprout. You can let her know. My mother is the QVC queen. Not something I can say that we are proud of, especially when she gets carried away, but some items are pretty nice.
