Rainy day

Today was my third and last round of knee injections. I almost hugged the doctors when they finished up. The appointment was early but by the time I got back to the office, it was after 11 A.M. which meant I would be working late.

Once back in my office, I got busy and the hours flew by. The skies here turned dark one moment and the next moment splattering rain danced on the courtyard outside my window.  A few moments after the clouds moved north, the August sun would beat down make it feel like a steam room outside.

I lost track of the time and barely made it to the bank to cash a check before they closed at 5 P.M.

On the way home, rain ticked off my windshield and I snapped a picture between windshield wiper swipes. Behind me, the  low-hanging clouds were dark as woodsmoke.

I'd plan to shoot pictures of my high school's first football game of the season, but I wasn't sure it was smart going to an open field when the weatherman was predicting lightning. There will be other games this year.

It's a long weekend for me and I hope to get in a little fly fishing. Y'all have a great weekend.


  1. Hope there is no lightening while you fly fish, holding a pole is more dangerous than watching a football game.

  2. Hope you catch something, and I hope lightning doesn't catch YOU!

  3. Wise to avoid the lightning! Mostly, glad to know those injections are a thing of the past!

  4. I feel for you, Rick - my knees give me fits, too. But that's no reason to consider lightning exposure yet, ha ha.

  8. I'm glad your knee injections are all done with. I hope it brought you relief.
    My knees were so sore and stiff and a friend recommended I take Omega-3 fish oil. The gel capsule are big enough to choke a horse but it has helped me tremendously. The fact that I can go up and down ladders is testimony. My knees were so stiff , I thought I would end up in a wheel chair before long.

  9. It's tough to have to go through those injections but I hope they help. I love this picture because it inspires me to create a card with those beautiful hues
