When I was about 12, I popped up in the dark to use the loo and only afterward did I realize I;d peed on a poor bat that had fallen in the toilet. It was not a dark and stormy night, except fpr the poor bat.

~mj~, what have we told you about not letting him out at night to terrorize your neighborhood?

Default It was a Dark and Stormy Night

as I dragged my ass through the steaming jungle of the Amazon rain forest. The rain hadn't stopped for days. The jungle was teaming with poisonous snakes, millipedes and spiders. mj wasn't here, she can't handle the spiders.

I hewed through the dense jungle. It was so tough I had to stop from time to time to rehone the edge on my trusty machette.

But I kept slogging on, fighting back the tepid heat.

I didn't know how much more I could take as I heard mj in the back of my mind...

"Hey honey have you finished weeding out that flower bed? I have another one for you to do!"

As I boarded my plane for tropical Africa....

My mother told me to flush him, so I did. Now I'd probably find way to fish him out and fling him out the window.

WHo gardens in the dark?

I kind of agree with her. Sometimes in summer it's really the only cool time to weed. Some mornings can be so muggy that the sweat just jumps on your skin the moment you walk out the door.

I LOVE that!

OK, so yesaterday, after a week in the 70s, it hit 90, and I answered my own question. At dusk it was still about 80, but I had deadheading to do and a friend gave us some daisly slips that HAD to get int the ground, and around 10:30 I was digging in the dark and thinking of this very conversation.

I thought you would! LOL! That's why I posted it in here too.

I was in the kitchen when suddenly I hear the hubby sitting in here, chuckling. I had to look & figured many people would get a giggle. If you need it larger, that's a reduced image.

Wasn't easy, was it? But cooler! Though, I can't say I've ever been out that late.

It was a dark and stormy night as I hacked my way through the steaming jungle in darkest Afrika. I followed the ancient papyrus as well as I could and eventually came upon the cave.

Probing in, I lit my torch (flashlight, but I thought I would say torch for my friends from across the great pond.

Deeper and deeper into the cave I delved finally coming upon an ancient artifact. It looked so alien.

It couldn't be from this earth and is was shiny, nothing that could possibly be made by the ancient cultures of the time. I think I hit the jackpot as I had finally found an artifact from another planet.

Like a tomb raider, I examined the object and the myriad of buttons on it.

I decided to push one and this fuzzy image came on, on what could only be some alien monitor. I examined the specter as it looked intently at me. This would be the greatest discovery of all time. Finally communication with an alien race.

I would be hailed in all glory for proving once and for all that we are not alone.

You know, I was going to suggest that you borrow your wife's headband flashlight, but you just called her an alien. Even a Canadian might not be polite about that.

She is an alien. An unconditional resident alien. The point was making something simple I learned into one of my long drawn out stories.
