It is an interesting question how far men would retain their relative rank if they were divested of their clothes.

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good afternoon, I'm still fighting with this sines thing. The cloud cover holds the pollution in and pollution is what makes me sick. Hopefully we will get a brake in the clouds soon. I broke down and got some sines medicine, but I don't like the side effects so don't take it as often as maybe I should.

There was a strange SUV in the ditch catty corner from my house at 5:30 in the morning when I went to walk the dog. There is nothing strange about a car in the ditch around here, except this one was at a strange angle and all you have to do around here if you go in the ditch is go to the ranch and they will pull you out, but maybe it was late and he didn't want to wake them. I couldn't see how he could have driven in that way. I had to go out and just before I left a policeman was beating on the window asking a very disheveled man if he was OK. Later a neighbor came by and asked me about what happened. I told him all I knew. He said that before it was all said and done there where 4 police cars, an ambulance and wrecker. I told him I'm sure the police had to call a wrecker and the man wasn't alright, but what was with 4 police cars I have no idea. That is a lot of excitement for this neck of the woods, well field around here.

Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty- five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001), The Salmon of Doubt

Good noon, I took Mutt to the vet $400 to give him his shots and tell me he is healthy. After the vet I took Mutt for a walk along one of the bayous near the house we walked till Mutt was panting and I took him to the dog park next to the trail to get a drink. There is a small dog area and a large dog area. The small dog area was packed. A man that takes toy dogs when toy dog rescue has one that has been hanging around was there with 10 little dogs. Blind, deaf, missing limbs that kind of thing. The little dog area is small, so many people will come over to the big dog area when the little dog area is crowded, when their dog likes to run or their other dog is a big dog. Today my 50 pound Mutt was the smallest dog in the big dog area. even the puppies were over 90 pounds. Mutt didn't want to play with the other dogs, but didn't snap or anything when they greeted him, he just walked around till the rain said it was time to go. Instead of sitting on the bench I walked around watching the dogs. My tracker says we spent 90 min between the trail and the dog park.

Good morningI wore this morning to an e mail from SP that I'm a motivator. Thanks everyone, I thought I was gabby.

I'm off today, but had big plans, wash the dogs, shopping, things like that. Now it is thundering and lightning and radar can't decide if a big storm is going to hit us, or if like yesterday, just threaten us and go clabber Houston.

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

God Afternoon, You get two quotes for the price of one today. Yesterday I went to the San Antonio Boardwalk. DD had gotten us the motel. It was .5 miles from the boardwalk. Well maybe the motel was close, but it didn't look like a good place to walk. I asked at the desk about the best way to get to the boardwalk and was told to go out the back door take a right and it would be on my left. What I knew of the boardwalk was where all the shops were and it was .5 of a mile, but 3 steps out the back of the motel was another part of the boardwalk. A walking path along the river. No shops, some joggers, but not crowed.

DH and I walked that path. DH has CP, walks slow, has to rest often and used a cane. DH said he was sorry he had to stop, he knew I wanted to go on. I told him I was ready to turn around when he was and although I hadn't walked as fast as I would have I felt like we got a good walk in. When we got back to the motel I was looking at a map of the path we had walked. DH asked how far we had walked. I told him I wasn't real sure where we turned around, but thought it was about 4.5 miles, maybe closer to 5. He said no way he could walk anywhere near that far. When my tracker unloaded after we got home it said we walked 4.25 miles. and it took us 200 mins, not counting rest stops. We were going to go to the boardwalk everyone talks about today, but mother nature had other ideas.

Good morning. I'm fine. I live west of the hardest hit flooded area and I would have to drive though it to get to work. I only work 4 hours today and had planned on them being this morning. I texted my boss and told her I was giving the water time to dean off and was changing it to this afternoon. She came back with just plan on 8 hours tomorrow. I want you safe.

Yesterday I didn't get many steps because i got real cold Sunday and was achy and blah yesterday so slept most of the day. I can get very sick when I get cold so work hard not getting cold but the chill from all the rain went right through me. I generally only average 5000 to 7000 steps a day. MaryAlice...I think it is wonderful that you can get so many steps in during the day. I'm sure I did also when I was working since I was a supervisor and had to make rounds through 7 buildings at one job site. Then when I transferred, I only had to do rounds on 4 units instead of the 15 units at the previous site. Also had plenty of steps as the hospital had 4 stories. Of course I didn't have a pedometer then.......lol...I wouldn't have been allowed to take it in with me anyway since it wouldn't have been part of my uniform.

Anyway...keep up the good hard work...

Good morning, Mutt and I didn't walk this morning, raining.

I don't normally say anything about my steps, to many of you are trying to just make the minimum recommended. Since I slipped and said something and so many have commented on it. 23,000 is about what I expect in a day. I work hard to keep me steps below 25,000. My ankle complains bitterly the next day if I go over by much. SP says my high was when I waking the floors at wal-mart, I got 31,000. I'm not bragging, thats the way I am. I have always been a walker. Mom says I would open the back gate and go for a walk. She would look out and a neighbor would be walking me home like you would return a dog that got out of the yard. Even 50 pounds ago I would go for a walk before fixing breakfast. hen I heard that you should get 10,000 steps a day to stay healthy, I got a pedometer. I had 10,000 steps before lunch. I'm a bookkeeper and days I work I'll only get about 18,000 steps. O got 18,500 yesterday. So how do I do it. 100 steps at a time.

There is a long way, 70 steps to the bathroom at work and a short waym 10 steps. I take the long way coming and going.

I park as far from the door of a store as is practical. This can be 100 steps each way. Also it is easier to find a parking space.

I'm told that for your health you should get up once an hour and move for 2 min. That is about 100 steps.

My boss sits at her desk in the room next to mine for hours on end texting me if she needs anything. I get my fanny out of the chair and go into her office. Ok that isn't 100 steps, but I got up and moved.

The big thing 2 dogs that think a walk is 3 miles. that is 7,000 steps

"Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you."

Good morning, I'm dragging today, but I guess I have a good reason, a reason anyway. Yesterday the church DH goes to had service early because they were hosting the Greek Festival. After service we went to the festival. The SPAT tracks 10 min continual movement as exercise. I kept stoping and stating as I visited the different booths. Then I went over to DD for a Mothers day BBQ. I knew my exercises would be limited there, Well it wasn't the boys wanted Grandma to play games that involved chasing them, again I didn't think I went 10 min between stops. After dinner the boys wanted a walk. We walked 30 min. I was sure hoping that put me over my goal, I was beat. I got home and uploaded my info. only had 23,000 steps, but 263 mins of exercise. Believe me my goal is nowhere near 4 hours.

Good morning, I woke up with big plans starting with bathing the dogs. My ankle said it had plans. Exercise today is in short spirits and off my feet. My biggest problem is this thing called I can't take pain meds and my head firmly believes that pastries will stop the pain, and DH decided we should go to the bread store for breakfast. They have the coffee I like, yes, but they also have bread fixed every way but good for you.

Spent about 3 hours with some Spark friends at a park in Springfield, MO. After having a sack lunch, we did their walking trail. At the back of the trail was a pretty bridge over a stream with a free flowing dam. It was a nice fun relaxing time. We will meet again in the fall.

Good afternoon, I'm sitting for my grandsons. They are easy to watch. I have trains. There is just something about lithe boys and wooden trains. When DD asked me to watch them I asked what they eat. She told me they weren't into veggies, but wanted oranges, and apples with their dinner and grapes with their snack. Before DD left the house the boys told her they would be fine, Grandma had trains and took good walks. Think our afternoon is planned out.

Happy Mayday. emoticon emoticon emoticon When I was young, we would pick wild flowers and run up to peoples houses, ring their door bell, leave the flower on there steps and try to get away before they saw us. When I got older I would get to work early and leave one on each persons desk, I was the one with the key and open the office up everyday. Then I'd sit back and listen as the people came in. About 2/3 would think they had a secret admirer. The rest wanted to know who the commie was. I can't leave flower on your door step so virtual flowers it is. 'm home early, not much going on on Fridays, so the boss just kicks us out.

We are having some cool weather. It is in the 50's at night and low 80's during the day. The dogs are loving it.

I will be planting them on Wednesday after I soak them for 24 hours.

Alice Thinks Sometimes Maybe Perhaps

Good evening, It's only Monday and I stopped and picked something up on my way home. Nothing hard, no nasty people. A 14 page bank statement and the person that entered checks in the computer, I know she just made up check numbers and if she couldn't remember if she had put a check in or not she ut it in again with a different number.

I got an E-mail from Mom. She sends out Alice thinks everyday so we know she is OK. Well she sent out an email Friday she wasn't thinking this weekend. She had decided that she couldn't take care of a 4 bedroom house on and acre and half, so got an apt in town. The told her it wouldn't be ready till the first of May, but Wednesday told her it was ready. She was so happy. She had a meeting in town Friday that would last long enough so she would have to drive the 40 miles in the mountains in the dark, Then go back Sunday for church, drive home after a long day and drive back on Monday for a DR appt. She decided to take the first car load to the apt Friday morning and part of it would be an air mattress and camp chair She said no electric, no phone and no internet, but so peaceful.

These long summer days are riving my nuts. Mutt and I like our last walk to be after dark. That is just to late now.

Good morning. We had one heck of the t storm this morning, but most of it went north of us, folks in North Houston hope you are all fine, But I did get my shopping done. For some reason about an hour ago I developed this headache.

I know most of you are way too young for this to mean anything, but it was so funny. I was eating lunch with my boss. We were just talking about this and that, when she told me she didn't know anything about my FIL, but while she was building her business her husband would constantly tell her She was Driving Nails in his Coffin. One of Floyd's songs "Your Diving Nails in my Coffin".

"It's not what you are, but what you don't become that hurts."

To show labels can confuse you, I have been on a low salt diet for going on 40 years now. DH joined me a year ago. He saw that I got some lightly salted rice cakes. He said something about me eating something that was salted. I had him read the label, my rice cake that said it was lightly salted had half the salt of his piece of toast that said nothing about salt.

For all these gadgets that we are told tell how healthy we are. DS took her youngest to a new DR. The Dr checked him, gave him a real good physical. Then looked at my sister, well his BMI says he is border line obese and I need to put him on a weight lose diet and exercise routine, his pinch test says he is under weight and malnourished and I need to start him on meal replacement snacks, all his labs show him to be fine, whatever your doing keep doing it. Her son is on the high school swim team.

– Ch๖gyam Trungpa

Good morning, The sun is out today and so the water is evaporating, but that is making it muggy. I've spent most of the weekend so far with no electric. Out here in the country that also means no water or internet. That would be why I wasn't on yesterday. We just had a tree that was shorting the transformer out. They fixed it and sent for someone to trim the tree. Before they came a substation in town froze, whatever that means, and left 40,000 people without electric. They came first and before they could get out here the transformer had shorted out again. At 5:30 this morning I wore to chainsaws trimming the tree and 30 min later the lights.

Where we are we use to be a rice patty and flood easy. Duke thinks this is great. He can race around a flooded backyard. Now my yellow lab is a chocolate lad. He will be an itchy mess later, but he sure is enjoying it now and there is no sense in bathing him till it drys.

We had quite a storm last night. DH said I looked tired and was I going to take my shower and hit the bed. i told him I was going to try to stay up a little longer so i wouldn't wake too early in the morning. I waited too long, a half hour later we lost electric. I live in the country, no electric means no water. Yes we keep 3 gallon jugs of water for our cooler for drinking. The electric was on this morning. Come hurricane season when the electric is out longer we will keep 5 jugs full at all times and when a hurricane is 72 hours out start filling other things for non drinking water.

For those of you who know Weaver, he is doing great. Getting used to a new way of eating because the vet said he is in the very early stages of liver disease. They will do another chem panel the end of June to see if his new diet is helping.

I don't think he is to unhappy do you?

good afternoon.....

had to take back Maggie's gentle leader.....it was stressing her out to much.....i exchanged it for an easy walk harness. it's too big, so i'll have to get a smaller one, but she didn't stress out when i put it on, so i think it will work when i get the right size.

everyone have a good day.................. emoticon

"Calmness is the cradle of power."
– Josiah Gilbert Holland

Good Morning, I'm home because tax season is over and my boss is taking a few days off, so until payroll about noon tomorrow, I'm off. l'll get my exercise in early. It looks nasty outside and is trying to rain. so guess it will be inside exercise.

That is just as well, my weight isn't moving and I was thinking it might help if I lowered my step goal and added more weight and starching exercises. worth trying anyway. The dogs like my step count high, it means more walks for them. As for Lola all she cares about is with this weather there is no sun on the porch to lay in.

I saw on the news about the dog flu making it's rounds. It sounds like it is hitting mostly doggy daycare, but be careful. My dogs don't go to daycare, but I don't think most dogs out here know what a vet is.

Mutt and i got a walk in this morning before the rain. Looks like it will be clear so we can walk again this evening.

Depending on how well you can drive those narrow mountain roads, Mom lives 12 to 14 hours from me. The apartment is in town about 35 miles from where Mom lives and close to her church and shopping. Since her house is paid off she is planning on taking a car load up on Thursday, staying the weekend and going back to the house on Tuesday. Someone from the church with a truck will get her big things. Of course she could sell the house right away and have to move all at once.

I hope your Mom can find the perfect place for her. I agree, just because you are 83 doesn't mean you can't have a decent size house or apartment. Are you close enough to help her?
Hope you got in the exercise you wanted.

Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.
--J. K. Rowling

Happy Saturday. The only errand I haven't gotten done is getting my hair cut. My hair is so thick, at a certain length, it isn't long, but is flat in places and bushy in others. I'm glad I'm blessed with thick hair. but sometimes it seams I'm always cutting it. That is why I let it grow out when I worked at Wal-Mart.

Mom is living in a 4 bedroom house on an acre and half. It is the smallest house I can ever remember Mom living in on the smallest lot, but she said that the up keep was just more then she could do, so she went looking for an apt. she hated all the places people seamed to think 83 year old woman should live. People seamed to think she needed a one bedroom, one bath with a little kicheneat, and the laundry room in the center of the complex. She said she just found a place with a real honest kitchen and and a over under washer/dryer combo. Now the fun begins. Mom says the lady in the office just shock her head. Mom told her that it was going to be so expensive to live there. What with a shopping center within walking distance. The lady said it wasn't within walking distance it was 3 miles away. No Mom wouldn't be getting anything heavy, but 3 miles is well within walking distance.

My tracker says I've done my 120 mins of exercise, but my head only counts intentional exercise, so I'm off to row.

good morning......

I couldn't find my last post....it must have been awhile ago.

I've been trying to get out more to walk but it's been pretty cold here the last couple weeks with only a day here or there of pleasant temps. I did get to petsmart to get Maggie a Gentle Leader collar because she pulls so hard she chokes herself. we tried it out yesterday. SHE DOESN'T LIKE IT ONE BIT!!!!...lol.....she did better on the way home and I think she'll get used to it when se realizes she'll get to go on walks more often when she wears it.

everyone have a good day......... emoticon

Good evening, Today has been one of those days, it started when my boss texted me 30 min before I was to leave for work. I need you at the office ASAP, and it was all down hill from there. Non of the problems were of my making, but guess who had to fix them. Does juggling a payroll firestorm, with balancing a set of books kept by an owner that would rather be in the warehouse, pays cash most of the time, so there is very little money trail, and why does the government want all that paper work anyway, count as exercise.

MaryAlice emoticon Scott is 71 years old and wants to live off text exclusively with everyone, even his kids and other family and me. He's resistant to actual communication and thinks nothing of being very removed. I'm a firecracker by his standards because I have moods, need intimacy, am fragile then strong.... Some folks prefer to live with most of themselves shut off. It may be a pain to you that a boss constantly texts but I now do this myself with my tenant and find benefits, too.

Cold symptoms gave me a bad night's sleep and I have to ignore this 70 degree day to take care of my stuffed nose. Glad you stayed home! It's all so imperfect, isn't it/us/them?

"The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything."

Good morning. I called in, or rather text in, that I didn't think I could stay out of the bathroom long enough to drive to work. I text in because after 10 years of working places where they better never see a cell phone or hear one ring, I work for a lady that looked at me in horror and asked what we were going to do, because I forgot my phone. She told me I needed to get one of those things you put on your hip so I could keep my phone with me. She text me everything she thinks of something I need to do , every time she has a question or just wants to know how things are going. OK I understand she is on the road several days a week, but we did manage before cell phones and this lady is a grandma.

My DH was on disability when we met. After dating for awhile, he told me he couldn't ask me to marry him because a man was suppose to that care of his wife and he couldn't provide for me. I told him there was more then one way to take care of a working woman. He has fixed me breakfast, done the dishes, what he can do around the house, most of the shopping and learned to help with the dogs for the last 25 years. He isn't quite sure what to do when I don't feel good, but will get what ever i ask for as quick as he can, even if it means running not town.

I ate well, quite well, at both Passover Seder meals, and my scale has gifted me a more modest weigh in than I feared. It remained stable!!!
emoticon Yay, overall, for doing the right things!

Mary Alice,
Thank goodness you were able to STAY by the bathroom instead of get hit with this once out. I had a day myself one week ago where I was good for nothing but by the bed.
Feel better soon.

Will your husband tend to mutt as well as you when you're out of commission? I don't assume men are willing to do whatever lengths women go to but you might be lucky.

I am trying to arrange for my dog care during my upcoming travel, by my son. I know that, though an adult, he has a lifestyle that is unique to someones needs other than what he manages for himself. Ah, relationships. Imperfect, every one of us.

emoticon Dog hour coming up this afternoon. MA, I'll think of you while we're out there.

Morning, Happy Palm Sunday, Wouldn't you know the Sunday I thought I would brave the incense and go to church with DH, I woke up with a headache and could only walk Mutt 15 min, normally we go about an hour, because I couldn't get that far from the bathroom. I have a feeling I'm celebrating Palm Sunday with my computer and kindle on the table next to the bathroom.

Good afternoon, Walked the dog check, played fetch with the other dog, check, two loads of laundry, well one is on the line and one is in the washer, called and wished mom a happy birthday check, done the taxes, well they are all together in the box beside the computer. DH keeps asking how they are coming, I can't say they are doing anything.

Unfortunately there are times when I have to leave Daisy home alone especially in the summer down here where the temp can go over 100 real quick----just too hot and dangerous to take her.

Elsie,
Lovely! ! !
I have trouble posting pictures on spark, or making any changes to any I had in the past.
Very annoying for me.
One picture caption identifies the wrong dog in the picture I can't edit correct.
I don't try anymore due to the frustrations of it.

Dogs.
We have so many of them living here!!!! Amazing rescue pet numbers in the mix of ownership.
Where I live there are paths around small lakes where dog walkers see each other daily and create a mini community. There are dog walk groups and dog care individuals who take in someone's pet for days instead of going to a kennel.

I wish all dog owners understood the quality of life a dog requires. Not to work full time and leave the dog like that. But I will not linger on my sadness for the dogs whose owners think they handle their pet just fine because it's what they (the owner) is willing to do.

I'm off to take a long walk with mine in the sunshine.

Good evening. I had a date for lunch, a little boy wanted to have noodles with grandma. You will have to look at my spark page to see my date. I tried to p load a picture. I could get to where I click to up load the picture and nothing happen. I tried changing my mouse, I tried changing it to a right handed mouse. Yes I'm right handed, most of the time, depends on what I'm doing and I like a left-handed mouse. ok changed it back, so much better.

Good afternoon, I'm back from jury duty. DH told me it would take me 45 min to an hour depending on traffic to get there and to allow time to find a parking space, so I left an hour and half before I needed to be there. It took 35 min to get there, they had just opened a new parking lot and being I was early there was no one in it. I didn't think the court house opened until 8 so got out my kindle and read. About 15 till I looked up and saw everyone going in the courthouse. Well I guess I it is good I didn't know they open a lot earlier for those with jury duty. The first 1,100 were potential jurors for a murder trial expected to last 2 months, the next 1,100 were potential jurors for a civil trial expected to last over a month and the rest where extras incase there were too many they had to release for the hardship of a long trial. I was number 3 in the last group, so I just had to sit and wait and see if they even needed me to be a potential juror. Sure glad I had my kindle. They didn't need any extras. Since jury selection for the murder trail was expected to last several days, just being a potential juror would mean I would be going in for several days.

Dale that is one group I don't get quotes from, I'll have to look into it.

Gretchen,
GREAT GARDEN! On the east coast we no longer get any tomato that has real body and taste. The beefeater variety disappeared and now they all seem altered to look uniform instead of nutritious. Can't find great seeds anywhere. (Can I visit you someday? LOL)

MaryAlice,
Your first quotes of any entry are wonderful. Thank you. (Are you connected to spiritual centers for the science of mind by chance? All spiritual paths are honored.)

I haven't been by here for many months I see. All your talk about clothes lines and real gardens have me nostalgic. In the mid Atlantic region we rarely see that anymore perhaps due to density populations and perhaps even efficiency. No balcony hanging items allowed in apartment buildings or condos.

Anyway, walking with our dogs and really appreciating our relationship with them is common to us wherever we live. I appreciate what is and can be. I walk with a fitbit on my waste to encourage long or frequent walking, and it lifts my spirits tremendously. Good to read you again,

I think it has been close to 30 years since I used a dryer. I didn't have one growing up, then I didn't have electricity for 6 years, then I had a dryer because where I lived they wouldn't let me put up a cloths line. Now I live in the country. We had a dryer because it moved with us, but hadn't used it. One day DH went to fluff a pillow and it make the worse noise. We figured it was a waste of space, told an appliance repair person he could have it if he took iy away and put a rep freeze in its place.

I like hanging my clothes out also and do so all summer and right up till the weather gets too cold to be outside. I have even hung out blankets and towels on some of the nicer winter days.

It was so nice today with mostly sunshine. A bit of a wind but not much.

Take care.......Elsie

Good morning, yesterday by this time I had gotten a lot done. This morning my head is killing me and aside from walking Mutt and putting another load of was in the washer, I haven't done a thing except watch the drama on the porch. There are a couple small birds sitting on the porch banister just chirping away. Lola is on the porch looking like she is going to pounce. The birds look like they know Lola doesn't like to jump and doesn't get on the banister. Every once in awhile one of them will fly down and tease her.

Never heard of a dog Easter Egg hunt before. I miss Easter Egg hunts now no children live with me. The boys might get their morning meal in Easter Eggs.

Got most of the weeds out of the garden. I only have nine open spots. I have 3 Ace, 3 Celebrity, 1 Early Girl and one volunteer tomato planted. 1 barrel with zucchini, 1 with California Wonder Bell Pepper and 1 with a slicing cucumber. These were all plants I bought in containers. Now I will do some patty pan and yellow crookneck squash, 2 more bell peppers, cantaloupe, lemon cucumber, a poinsettia 76 cucumber from seed and my onion sets. The green you see around the barrels and the 5 barrels in the middle of the garden are strawberries.

It is something to watch Mutt and his BFF, Cane. The year before the hurricane didn't hit us, but did make life interesting. During the storm a neighbor hear something banging his door and went to see what it was. It was a puppy. He never went to the pound and no one claimed him. Cane and Mutt have been together since I got Mutt. They think the world of each other. The neighbor says it is because they are both large, gentle, hurricane dogs.

Yes....after the EF5 tornado hit Joplin in 2011 the shelters took in hundreds of animals. They even set up a temporary shelter in a donated warehouse. Many were reclaimed by owners. Sadly many weren't as people were in hotels and places that wouldn't take pets.

"It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something."
– Franklin D. Roosevelt

On the way home from work there was thick black smoke across the road. I had to pull over 6 times for 3 different fire departments. Well if that BOOM is any indication, something just blow.

The pound thinks Mutt was out in hurricane Ike. Mutt is an Ike dog. that means the pound found him running the fields after the hurricane. The pound held him the required 2 months, no one claimed him, they did't have to pick him up just claim him, put him up for adoption with the understanding that the owner still had 30 days to claim him. The pound told me that the chances of an owner coming forward after 60 days was slim, and one coming forward after 60 days for a dog that wasn't house broken or leash trained was next to non existent. Well Ike was 6 years ago. Mutt doesn't like storms, but is getting better. There were so many dogs after the hurricane that all the rescues and shelters where way over capacity and a large dog that wasn't house broken needed to find a home fast

AWWWWW poor Weaver....

Getting thunder storms so Daisy is huddled under my desk and at my feet. She doesn't like thunder, rain, or wind. She often shakes real bad. Right now she is content to be under my desk.

We do need the rain though.
