When it rained, it poured!

Pooches, Starlight and I were worried all morning about the fate of an excursion today.  My manservant had gone for his customary walk/run this morning and had hardly gotten underway when heavy rain moved across his walk/run park forcing him to abandon his planned activity.

He returned to our den and told us of his misfortune before retiring to the library to “spend the day” in preparation for his academic responsibilities this weekend.  Starlight began checking the weather radar to get a report on the location of the rain showers.

Around excursion time he emerged from the library “for a break” and began putting together lunch.  He asked Starlight if there was any threat of rain around and Starlight replied that there was none.  Lunch was packed, the Hybridmobile was boarded, and off we went on an excursion.  The Hybridmobile purred down the dual carriageway and my manservant directed it to take us to his walk/run park.  He kept looking and the skies and finally asked Starlight if she was sure there was no rain around.  She said she sure there was none because she had only seen grass on the radar.  Pooches, my manservant and I failed to pick up on that last comment!

We disembarked from the Hybridmobile upon reaching our destination and crossed my creek on the footbridge.  Lunch was spread out on a makeshift picnic table and we devoured the ham salad sandwiches with gusto.  When dessert was presented Starlight and I both cheered at the sight of peanut butter and banana!

Pooches, the skies opened up and heavy rain began falling just as we swallowed the final bite of banana.  A hasty retreat to the Hybridmobile was carried out promptly.

We’re back at our den now.  After drying off, my manservant returned to the library for an afternoon of continued academic preparation.  I will be explaining to Starlight that green blobs on the radar indicate rain, not patches of grass.

Masters of bumpkin style dining, we use a storm sewer cover for our picnic table!

Our favorite dessert:  peanut butter on a banana.  Oh, boy!

Our favorite dessert: peanut butter on a banana. Hooray!

No time to sniff, Starlight, it is raining harder.
