What's that sound in the bushes...

Her umbrella was filled with rain she had collected in her travels & on hot summer days she would open it up for the neighborhood kids & we would splash in the puddles & then it would smell like Nairobi or Tasmania & later on we would sit on the porch & eat ice cream & watch for tigers in the bushes.

Wow wow! Love the extract here and it's amazing the effects you can get with paint and a brush wielded by a skillful hand!

I wouldn't mind being painted like that for a day. It would be fun. I think I would walk downtown Modesto and have people oohing and aaahing over me. Tee Hee. Have a great week.
