Rainy Days and Mondays ... 

You would think that - being in Georgia - so (relatively) close to the Southeast that is being hit with all of the bad weather over the last few weeks, we would have seen some of the residual rain from the storms.     But, amazingly-enough, we have been without rain for over three-plus weeks here.     Our grass is literally 'crunchy' when you walk on it, even with regular watering.

Yesterday, the forecast predicted thunderstorms, and the skies were threatening for part of the day.     We still kept our 'date' with friends for an afternoon ride and lunch.     We rode our Harleys northwest to a town about thirty miles away and had lunch at a nice Italian restaurant.     Then we took to the backroads for some 'ride' time.     Although, at times, the skies darkened, we never had any rain - but, the winds were fierce in spots - making it difficult to keep the bikes on the road.

On the way back into town, we took a detour to check out an abandoned bridge that someone had told me about earlier in the week.     We found the spot that led through the woods down to where it was supposed to be.     Our friends stayed with the bikes while my s.o. and I hiked back into the woods a bit looking for what I was told would be "just a short walk back off of the road."     The guy that told me about the bridge said he hadn't been there in 3-4 years.     I guess time had dimmed his recollections of things a bit.     It was more that a short walk; it was a decent, little hike - and took a winding path up, down and around a washed-out area that was possibly the remainder of the original road leading to the bridge.     We finally found it, and I did get a few photos of it but, because of the overgrowth and all of the leaves that are still on the trees, I'll need to go back later in the fall when more leaves have fallen to get a better view of the structure.

I awoke this morning to a welcomed sight . . . it had actually been raining overnight.     It isn't raining now, but it is still overcast with the threat of more rain.     For once, I'd enjoy a rainy Monday.

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
