...it happens...

Hello? Oh, you are there. It is 7 am but looks like midnight outside as the skies grew dark and the rains began to fall. The 'boys' are barking and pacing due to the thunder and lightening even tho' I keep reassuring them of their safety. I can 'Pollyanna' with the best of them but try to keep a positive attitude. We all know thought, that a bolt of lightening could come through my kitchen window, zapping both me and the laptop at anytime. You can't keep us down. We persevere and do the best that we can. We all know that shhhh! it happens. Alice Huyler Ramsey knew what could happen and still forged ahead. On this day in 1909, the 22-year-old housewife and mother from Hackensack, NJ, became the first woman to drive across the United States. With three female companions, none of whom could drive a car, in fifty-nine days she drove a Maxwell the 3,800 miles from Manhattan, to San Francisco. There she met a wonderful gal and stayed in California for the rest of her natural born life. The latter is not fact. Spread your wings folks, life is short. So is this blog. The lightening is too close for comfort.Today's photo is the 'Clef Note Lamp'. It is music to my ears. Have a great day.
