So here’s some rain from THE RIGHT SIDE:

“This seat taken?”

LeAnne turned, had to twist practically all the way around to get this person in her field of view. A smiling man, dressed in clean, pressed clothes, freshly-shaved, short hair wet with rain. She shrugged. He took the aisle seat. The bus pulled away from wherever they were. Raindrops slid horizontally across the glass, and pelted the roof hard, like gunshots. She felt the man shift in his seat, sensed that he was looking down at the floor on her side, where her feet, shod in Marci’s red sneaks, rested on the duffel.

“You in the Army?” he said.

LeAnne nodded, facing straight ahead.

“Thank you for your service.”

She didn’t respond. The bus rolled on. The sliding raindrops sped up and the overhead barrage grew louder. LeAnne tried to sleep, knew that sleep was the best answer at this moment, but she was way too wound up. She twisted around to the man.

“What would you know?”

    My sister’s texted me a few times yesterday but did they tell me that Dawson took a header in the snow? NO! I am the last to know. I sure hope she is better and settled into the house in Bellingham.

    The train got into Fargo at 3:30 a.m. and the Mister was there to pick me up. I got about 3 hours of sleep on the train and then about 4 hours in the hotel and then about 1/2 hour in the car and then when I got home I took a nap. Feeling fairly perky right now. LOL
