Never Rains . . .


It has rained all day. Even when I ventured out to get this photo of the success of my Rain Catcher it suddenly poured on me gleefully, catching me out in the open.

Another pouring thing is that Much Better Half has been in hospital all day to have a cyst drained. This, on top of all my own visits! She was admitted at the crack of dawn and then languished in bed for the whole day until late afternoon before the procedure was done. Why is it that the medical profession expects one to be on time, but never are themselves?

    I was just starting to feel so pleased to hear that you were home and then I read your better half is at the hospital. By now, let’s hope you’re both home and doing well!

    It’s their God complex. Let’s face it, who ever heard of a God being on time? … hope you are both feeling better-er.

    Sorry about the soaking, then again if you will venture outdoors in the pouring rain… 😀
    Hope MBH is not too much discomfort. A speedy recovery is hoped for.

    I “liked” the free water . . . not liked the all-day-at-the-hospital.

    In answer to your question . . . I don’t know. perhaps understaffing, perhaps too many procedures and regulations, perhaps emergencies. My guess? Understaffing.

    Hoping for the best for both of you.
