How I Won the Wet Tee Shirt Contest

Dear John,
 
The short version is that the yard is mowed. The long version is much more entertaining.
 
Hail to the Hail
There was a chance of showers after 4:00 today, so I got home from work, ate a cheese stick, and was mowing by 12:45. I got halfway through and the sky started getting darker. Then the hail came. I've never mowed in quarter-inch hail before. It changed into rain about twenty minutes before I finished.
 
So I won the neighborhood wet tee shirt contest today. I was soaked to the skin by the time I got inside. I won by default - I was the only one crazy enough to be out working in the yard in a hail storm. But it had to get done today - I'm working until Wednesday, and we're supposed to have thunderstorms all that day. I didn't get the trimming done. Even I'm not stupid enough to be out with an electric trimmer in the rain. And I need to cut back those three little rose bushes in front of the porch. Maybe I can get that done tomorrow.
 
But the big job is finished for the week. Tomorrow I can relax and enjoy my day off. Aren't you sorry you missed all this?
 
Adore you,
Joan.
