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.

    An ominous, but still beautiful photo!!

  6. Stormy weather is exciting. You just don't know what is coming next.

  7. 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.

  8. 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
