Drought ! What Drought !..Its Pissing down here in NSW Oz

Well we wanted rain and plenty of it and at last we are getting it. We have had unrelenting rain for the past two days here where I live in the seaside town of Budgewoi NSW Australia.
Our garden is under water and the garage floor too, the road is now a flowing stream. for hours we have heard the constant thunder; so the rain gods are intent on keeping it coming. The tourists will stay away from this the 'Queens birthday long weekend, when lilibet will be 81 years and 51 days old.
Elsewhere in Australia other states too are getting high rainfall where drought conditions have prevailed for several years. rivers dry for twenty years or more are now flowing again, and soon the grass Will be green again.
In recent years the people in the state of New South Wales and probably other states have been encouraged to install rainwater tanks to conserve the tap water supply,the rain water together with grey water from the washing machines is the used for such purposes as car and boat washing plus garden watering.
Our eldest son has just left to drive 200 klms down the coast in the pouring rain to his gig as a DJ. Our two beautiful granddaughters will be staying the weekend, that will be great fun in this wet weather.
At the moment I am sneezing; I have a stinking cold - the television is erratic and the two cats have gone missing, I am now taking day and night flu tablets, so now I can't have alcohol, the good news is, we will be having roast leg of Lamb for dinner(sorry vegans) with eight varieties of vegetables and roast spuds with gravy, dessert is to be Apple pie and french vanilla ice cream, going past that there seems to be little excitement to look forward to until the weather clears, I shall now turn the oven on, I'll get back to you later.

The weather is very bizaar at the moment. I don't mind the rain (especially for the farmers), but I could give the cold a miss!

Ive been to a certain Z F blog. trolling back I saw you were mentioned and this person was kocking you and your book and mentions your real name. how come you did not reply to that heap of shit he wrote,but funny thing was I googled your name and leslie charteris the Saint Book Author came up,"fancy that" will you explain.

jds rose,thanks for comment, am posting again soon.


Sneaky. Z F and his friend fell foul of me going back a bit, but their despicable vitriolic banter back fired in a sense that it assisted in the promotion and sales of my book. Also my comments were deleted on the ZF blog by ZF. This sort of happening is commonly known as 'The tall poppy syndrome'.
BTW. The author Leslie Charteris was hatched 1907 and despatched in 1993. so what do you still think he is me. Have a nice day sneaky.
