Funny, when we first moved into our little log home we thought there was nothing like sitting on the screened-in back porch. The cabin was built in the middle of thick woods, so there was an abundance of wildlife around. Sometimes the frogs would get so loud you would feel like you were going crazy!!! Anyway, Poppy and I don't sit out on the porch like we used to.
The usual thunder storms started up around 7:00 pm last night. When the clouds got dark and rolling and the wind got up pretty strong we decided to sit on the porch!!! Thunder could be heard rumbling in the distance, and I didn't feel too afraid. There's something very special about hearing the sound of rain coming, and then all of a sudden it's over you, beating down on the roof. Daddy used to say, "listen, you can hear the rain coming", run to the house"!! I had just said to Poppy..."once it gets to raining hard I expect lightening"...and sure enough...a streak of lightening...I jumped over that wicker table and Poppy's legs and made it to the door just as it thundered!!!
A few antique tools, bridles, saws, etc., on the porch wall...
Before I go, one more antique...me
Before the rain yesterday, Poppy asked for my camera...this is the picture he brought me...
Thank you for visiting. Hope to be back soon.
