In the News - Meteor Shower Deleted

I sometimes wish I was quicker with pulling out my notepad and pen when amusing things get said or done around the farm.  Given the right mood, the two of us have the ability to take discussions in all sorts of absurdly wonderful directions and I sometimes wish I could remember them well enough to report them and then play with them further on the blog.  After all, if they amused us, won't they amuse you?

Why don't I remember them, you might ask?  Well, if you fall into a giggle fit, your brains fall right out of your ears and you have a case of temporary amnesia. 

However, I do remember one specific conversation a couple of days ago that started with an observation that we could see the stars.  This was particularly noteworthy to us since we knew temps were forecast to be higher than usual for this time of year, but the sun was not forecast to show itself during that period.  Of course, the couple of moments we got with clear skies was at 9:00 at night.  After the typical lament that we would have liked a few moments of sun versus the continual fog, drizzle and overcast/cloudy skies during the day by both of us, Tammy mentioned the fact that there was supposed to be a meteor shower at some point during this time period.  But...


Ooops, you missed one.
This is one of those cases where I know Tammy heard what she was saying.  She just wanted to get to the point sooner without all of the connections that get a person from point A to point B.  But, WHY would you want to let something like that go?  And we didn't let it go - we had fun with it.

So, for everyone out there who was hoping to see a meteor shower recently.  You didn't see it because Tammy DELETED the meteor shower.  It had nothing to do with incessant cloud cover.  So there!

Rob was particularly disappointed because he felt it was about time to take a shower.  So, if the next time you see him and you feel that he is stinking up the place - blame Tammy.  She deleted the shower he was going to take.
I don't care if she deleted it, take a shower anyway!  I, the Sandman, have spoken.

For those who have interest in things like meteor showers, Tammy gets email posts from the Space Weather site.
