Rain boy

Boy in rain, holding umbrella

Handwritten page of a diary dated October 1, 2000

sure, OTHER kids want to watch Spongebob. Mine wants to watch the Weather Channel. Whenever Jim Cantore is reporting, Mikey stares at him. And if Jim is holding an umbrella Mikey can’t be torn away from the TV.

Unfortunately for Mikey we live in this sunny state. BUT today it rained a little and Mikey was in hog heaven. He stood out there with his little umbrella for an hour just walking barefoot very slowly around the driveway. And he would still be out there if I hadn’t made him come in when it got dark. He was so not happy with me. I told him someday we might go on a vacation to Seattle, where it rains a LOT. That was a mistake because I found him in his room trying to stuff his wet umbrella into his suitcase.
