Who’ll Stop the Rain?

Cookie's out in the early morning rain.

This walking in the rain stuff isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The ground is all wet, the leaves are slippery, and there isn’t a spot of sun to sit in. But have you ever seen the rain comin’ down on a sunny day?

Walking in the rain is no fun.

I stepped up on my log and onto the picnic table bench and all the way up on the table, and it’s just wet everywhere. Really, I just can’t stand the rain. Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head, and it’s so dark, it’s just like a rainy night in Georgia. If the rain was purple, or if there was some fire to go with the rain, that might be kind of cool.

But this has to clear up, nothing last forever, even cold November rain.

All I want is to sit on my picnic table and look at the yard, and I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain? Not my mom. And I honestly think she’s putting words in my head because she’s singing in the rain and I just wish she’d stop! Now I’ll have these songs in my head all day!

Stop it with the songs AND the rain!

    Ah, but did everyone get the references to popular song lyrics? Cookie gets really tired of me–after 19 years she’s heard me sing too many of these on rainy days!

    I totally agree with the others. Cookie is adorable! Great shots as well!

    Cookie is such a – tough Cookie! Despite her preference for dry weather, she’s still out and about.
