We've had a lot of unstable weather this past week with thunderstorms, hail, downpours and bright sun. While it wreaks havoc on the highways with auto accidents, it also makes for very dramatic skies. This is looking east from our back deck at about 5:30 p.m. on Friday, 6/29. It was pouring buckets at my house, but the sun was also hitting the tops of the trees, making for a lovely and huge rainbow.It was so huge that I couldn't get it all in one picture. Here's the other side, which was extremely vivid. I had a very short window of opportunity to get pictures before it faded.


What a freakin clown. We bought these "lips with cigar" for Pepper a few years ago, but she never grabbed it the right way to make it look like her mouth. Sagan, on the other hand, being the clown that he is, knew exactly what to do. It's too bad that he's chomping down because there are big white teeth too.

  5. There's very little more spectacular than a rainbow on a dark cloudy sky.

    Perhaps Pepper grabbing the toy the wrong way was making an anti-smoking statement!

  7. The amusing thing is that she never really played with it before we got Sagan, but now she keeps stealing it from him, even though she got a toy as well when we gave him the lips. Typical children.
