and it rained.... 

It was Janet's birthday so on Saturday we kidnapped her and went up to the cottage.

It was going to be May 2-4 done right. Sunshine and BBQ and The Woods. Campfires and S'mores and Fireworks. A Potato Gun, even.

And it rained. It rained and it rained. And the Potato Gun didn't work and we forgot the birthday cake and the marshmallows and the generator ran out of gas.

And we didn't care.

It was Dispatch's live album and Red Red Wine, stay close to me-ee-ee, and it was playing Trivial Pursuit (but not really) and swimming in the rain in the dark and taking seventeen matches to light each firework and it was a big fire in the woodstove and blankets and more blankets and in the morning it was sauteed mushrooms and canoeing.

It's still raining, and I think we made do.
