NOT YOUR AVERAGE LITTLE TOWN

Here are only two, of the many, many reasons why I'm so crazy about this little town.

1. The following notice has been posted recently not only in the local newspaper, but also on the Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center website:

Mr. Bunny will dance at 9:00 am on July 22.
Come and help make it rain!

2. I was sitting in Juan Henry's tonight, enjoying a mushroom quesadilla and the Sunday paper, when I thought I heard some thunder. A few minutes later, I thought I heard it again, and I noticed mine weren't the only eyes that kept straying to the windows, looking hopefully for dark clouds. After a while I went back to my dinner and paper. I was totally absorbed in a story, when a flash of lightning and a huge clap of thunder caused me to jump in my seat, and the next thing I knew, the entire restaurant had erupted into spontaneous applause and whoops of joy!

We had three quarters of an inch in our rain gauge by the the time I got home, and a beautiful rainbow arching directly over my house! But I'm still going to that Rain Dance, just to be on the safe side.
