Not nice.

I feel like a real lucky feller
With her, but I really must tell ‘er:
It’s really insane
To walk in the rain
With me, and not share the umbrella!

Four Greens in the lower house! It isn't enough, but it is a start. For those who are not Australian, we had a state election with the winner having a mandate to lease our electricity delivery infrastructure to Private Interests for 99 years.
OK, but if that must be, lets not force people who choose to generate their own electricity and are off the grid to pay as if they were. Ie, if you cut the wires to your house, you are totally responsible for your own electricity supply and do not pay anything to an electricity supplier. If we do not preclude that now, we pay for 99 years for something we do not receive nor want- about 90 years longer than Big Coal can survive.

Thank you Tess and to RAD for his evocative photo prompt.


  1. Very cute, and that was my first reaction when I first saw the photo! She should be sharing!

  2. We must never step out without a raincoat ....

  3. That was a fun write. Also I like the gangsta pic at the top. Watch out for that one, he's a wise guy.

  4. OK, hot shot ~~ whatcha gonna do about it? (the umbrella situation of course) a gal has to keep her hairdo intact!

  5. Oh, he's just a noble chap. Probably loans her his jacket when the weather chills down.

  6. He'll catch a cold later on and blame it on the drenching he so gallantly took and expect her to nurse him better....

  7. I read it umbreller...I was supposed to say it like that...right? giggle

    1. If you talked proper like us Aussies do, it would rhyme! But, I'm just happy you popped in!

  8. haha - maybe, he told her to use the umbrella he wanted to feel the rain..hey, you never know..
