The Forecast Calls for Rain. Of Course it Does

The Man-Cub’s football team is scheduled to play at 5:30 this evening and it has been raining on and off since before I got out of bed this morning; this should make for an interesting and muddy game.

Yesterday was beautiful, with temperatures reaching the eighties, sunshine and a light breeze. Today, we have the rain and, by tomorrow it could be snowing and, that’s autumn in the Rocky Mountains, folk; be sure to pack an umbrella with your sunscreen and snow boots.

Speaking of packing, my parents arrived yesterday to spend a couple of days watching the grand-spawn participate in their sporting endeavors. Unfortunately, The Teenager’s team lost the first game that they have lost all season, putting their record at, I believe, 9-1 which isn’t too shabby.

Of course, my parents are now worried that they jinxed the team with some sort of bad mojo or some such shit but, everyone is entitled to have a bad day and, unfortunately, fate picked yesterday to visit one upon several of the girls on the team. Shit happens, we move on.

And, I’m enjoying my parent’s visit regardless of the loss or of the fact that we will inevitably end up watching the Cub’s football game from our stadium seats while huddled under umbrellas and blankets because; my parents are just that good of company.

And, I have a bottle of peppermint schnapps and a bunch of hot cocoa and I’m not afraid to use them.
