Rain rain in So Cal. KKJZ (a local public radio station) is playing song after song about rain. Wonderful. None of this programmed-months-in-advance stuff I've come to expect from most radio. Nope, appropos to the day. Cloudburst, Singin' in the Rain, jazzed version of Raindrops keep fallin' on my head, and more.

Thanks Dave W for remembering that my grandpa's 100th birthday was two years ago. May your father continue to recover and live many many years. My grandpa beat death a few times late in life (liver absess, rolling a car, resulting in serious neck injury) before succumbing from complications after hip replacement surgery. His surviving those close calls made us (mistakenly?) think he was invincible.
