As a Rule

We had a full day of sunshine today which was a blessing. I know a few years ago when there was no rain for months, I whined.
So far this year I think we have a surplus rainfall of over twenty inches. The earth has been soggy for weeks and the tomato and pepper plants need life jackets. I fear many more days of rain will take its tole.
My fifth grade teacher Mrs. Sanford had a little poem that she would recite to me right now:

As a rule, man's a fool
When it's hot he wants it cool
When it's cool, he wants it hot
Always wants what he aint' got.

I smiled as I typed these words because they are so true.
