So Sorry!

My community was counting on me, but I was dragging my feet. Failure to fulfill my duty to my neighbors is related to living in a second story condo that has sliding windows, vintage 1970’s. But, even though my excuse is as good as any excuse can be, I accept total blame for causing concern in our community.

It was with a great deal of dread that I finally faced responsibility and tackled my designated job. All of the windows in my house were removed from the tracks and each endured a cleaning, shining, repositioning process.  The result was spectacular. My windows now sparkled as the sun shone brightly on its way to disappear behind the mountains. 

Morning found me admiring the windows and the views of the mountains. Then, in a matter of minutes, crystal-clear drops started to appear on the outside of the panes and very soon moisture was pouring from the sky in sheets. Thanks to me, our spring rains had finally arrived.  The vegetation greened, the drives look freshly scrubbed, and everyone now knows that their roofs survived the winter without springing any leaks. Of course, rain is now a regular event, and my windows, once again, are covered with spots.  Even so, I must apologize for postponing my duty as the rainmaker for the mountain side of the city and for causing everyone to worry. In the future I’ll try to be more conscientious in fulfilling my responsibility.


  1. Oh, you little Rainmaker, you. Better late than never. Don't let it happen again.

  2. With the airplanes flying over us day and night, my windows don't stand a chance. The rain actually cleans them for me! How is that for sad???

  3. Vanilla, I'll work on it.

    Captain Nancy, with all of the rain you get there your windows probably do stay clean.

  4. Can't believe I'm saying this, but..."rain, rain, go away; come again some other day..."

  5. Carolyn, I feel sorry for the golfers at the Broadmoor, but our grass is green.
