Gray light reveals another gray day, the damp world quiet for the moment, the rain having abated and the birds not yet singing. The serenity won't last long, I'm sure. I anticipate the arrival of the daily crows. Oh, there go the robins, and the acorn woodpeckers. They won't be letting a few clouds interfere with their day. Everybody is waking up but me and the cat (who has just settled down for her morning nap.) I am going to turn off my NEW SPEAKERS and go to sleep.
