The rain it raineth...

on the Just and also on the unjust fellow
But mostly on the Just, because
The Unjust steals the Just's umbrella
- Ogden Nash

Today the rain came. We had the thunder yesterday, but no rain worth speaking of. But wow have we had rain this afternoon!!!!! You could almost see the grass (what's left of it) and the plants jumping up to meet it. Hasn't cleared the air though - it's still hot and clammy.

Reading through Lythan's "aaaahhh songs" list reminded me of some more that should have been on mine - how could I forget Louis Armstrong's "Wonderful World"?
And di you ever watch that TV series "McCallum"? It starred John Hannah as a brooding pathologist who rode a motorbike. Well the theme music for that was "Cry Me a River" and is just fantastic. I think Julie London was the original singer but Alsion Moyet also made a cover version - fantastic song.
Recently they repeated the series on one of the digi channels, we were soooo disappointed and cross when they didn't use the "right" music.
