Why am I thinking water this morning? We did have a very strange thunderstorm Saturday evening, with lots of thunder. We're not used to thunder and that humidity mid-October, but it's not because of the storm. I've been reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and a great deal of it so far is set in the waters of the Pacific near Midway and Wake Islands. But again this is not why I'm thinking water today. My 'orange' photograph today shows the bottom of my driveway strewn with maple leaves. Now, I know the aging process is kicking in, but should it influence my backing out of the driveway? Backing up, down the driveway is easy when the tar is easily distinguished. Cover everything over with 'orange' and if my mind wanders doing such a mundane activity I tend to find myself on a piece of the lawn, off significantly to the right or left. It's not as embarrassing as backing off to the right and left in snow and leaving your wild tread marks for all the neighbors to see, but it's not good.
I enjoy wandering.
I just have my wits about me, or I'll find myself in big trouble.
Could AAA drag me out of a pile of leaves?
Like I said, somewhat embarrassing.
Water, water everywhere...
