What's rain for?

Bloggie friends!!

What a silly day!! Not only did it rain heavily but the window cleaners were out in force around the estate where I live.

Yes bloggie friends!! These poor souls were wearing yellow fluorescent waterproofs splashing water on rain soaked windows.

Oh but worse!!! As I meandered towards the station, some person had their lawn sprinkler going. While it rained.

Oh well. At least I got to wear my rather fabulous and dazzling Hunter Biker kick-ass (pardon my French!) wellies!

Charlie says: I smell rainwater and soapsuds!


Have a fortunate Friday and whacky weekend everyone!!!

Sounds crazy! LOL I wish I could have seen you in your 'wellies'. Take a pic!

Melissa Gill said...

We need a picture of the wellies. I haven't even gotten to wear my black and white hounds tooth wellies this year. No snow yet.

The Words Crafter said...

That's insane:P I'd love a pair of wellies!!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Now that makes total sense! I bet Charlie is smarter than that.

Kat_RN said...

People are very silly. Good thing you have your wellies.

Wow! You can speak North American. "kick-ass", as opposed to 'kick-arse' :-) pardon my North American and British LOL

Deborah said...

Charlie, doesn't rain water smell the best! Not too sure about the soap though!
Have a great weekend and I am so glad too. Long week at work!

It's been raining here too!
Weird climate change.

Normally when Chinese New Year is around the corner, it will be very hot and breezy.

We term it as "Blowing the Chinese New Year Wind" (direct translation).

As of today, we are still waiting for the "CNY Wind" heheeh, nothing to do with my wind problem...

Lots of love to you and Charlie. I hope the rain don't get too serious.

Mysti said...

Sounds like that movie Funny Farm! Watch out for drunk mailmen :)

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Charlie!! You gotta be on the inside if it's raining outside! You don't want your little spots to wash off!

Clarissa Draper said...

I wish it would rain here more often. I think this year it rained only about 10 times. That's not enough for my plants. Hmmm, although, we did get Hurricane Alex and then it flash flooded.

I want to see a photo of those wellies! it has been pouring with rain here, off and on, for a few days now :(

Summer Ross said...

I'd like to see a picture of your wellies, that is a whole lot of rain.

the writing pad said...

I loved this Old Kitty. Your observations on this baffling world of ours are always well worth reading - as were your first and last line Blogfest entries, the other day, which I missed putting a comment on, at the time. Will you be going on with the 2011 opening line?! I'm very intrigued ....
All best

Theresa Milstein said...

Sprinklers in the rain? That's just wrong!

We're supposed to get some snow beginning today and through the weekend.

Stay dry!

Kea said...

That really does defy logic, doesn't it?

So let's see a pic of your fabulous and dazzling Hunter Biker kick-ass wellies! :-P

Think I'll post a pic of my snow boots later, in the style of Pia. Hahaha!

Madeleine said...

LoL! Well they do say 'There's nowt so queer as folk' I think Charlie is the Sherlock Holmes of Felinedom. I shall have to post my latest kittie pic up in a moment and then go do the ironing. :O)

Hannah and Lucy said...

A lawn sprinkler in January - does the rain not land on that garden
They are probably having a BBQ tonight too!!
Glad to hear you are showing off your posh wellies - they'll cheer up a very dreary day.
Stay dry Charlie.

Sammy and Andy said...

Our mama loves rain....is she silly or what????? And she loves to walk in it, but only if it's a fairly gentle rain.......what we get here are mostly Texas gully washers, which means she can't walk in them or she'd wash away into a gully somewhere!!!!!! She soooooo loved the rains in Ireland.

Another handsome pic of you, Charlie....but what else could it be but handsome, as you are one handsome dude.

We send our love to both of you.

Susan Fields said...

Washing windows in the rain? Even I'm not that silly. :)

Have a great weekend!

Tara said...

People never cease to amaze me.

Have a great weekend!

Brian said...

Silly humans. My Dad says he sees lawn sprinklers on when it is below freezing and the water sprays onto the road...ice! Weird whiffin smells there Charlie?

Caren Gittleman said...

Charlie looks like he is having fun investigating!

Washing windows in the rain??? You gotta love it!

You have a Fortunate Friday and a Whacky Weekend too!

xoxo

notesfromnadir said...

O.K.,
Hmmm, your weekend appears to be off to a very wacky start! I've seen that before w/ sprinklers on in the rain, but never have I seen people washing windows then! However, they don't need any buckets, they can just squeegee the rainwater?

Hi Charlie, hope it gets sunny soon for you.

Marg said...

I have seen sprinklers going in the rain. How silly is that. But the window washers takes the cake. That is hysterical. Charlie you had better stay home where it is nice and dry. Hope you both have a fabulous week end.

Lola Sharp said...

Ohhh, I want some of those kickass Wellies in the worst way! *swoon*

It's snowing here (NJ) right now.

Have a lovely weekend!
Love,
Lola

Bossy Betty said...

Washing windows in the rain?? Hummmm...

Happy Friday to you and Charlie!

Jayne said...

Love the sentry line of potted plants! Hope you didn't get too soggy. :)

Hart Johnson said...

Ah... window cleaners in the rain... I mean I know they have a business to run, but seriously...

Ginger Jasper said...

As we say in Yorkshire there is nowt so queer as folk. Sprinklers in the rain !!! Have a good weekend Hugs GJ xx

wildcatwoodscats said...

Can't believe how ..do I want to say stupid...people are. What a waste of water too. Jealous of your Wellies!

Tracy said...

Well, YES, you got to wear your "kick butt' gear but also, isn't it fun to have the opporutnity the rain provides to curl up with a book and read for the day?
I always laugh when it is pouring down rain and someone has their sprinkler on; really?

Lydia K said...

Have a great weekend yourself! I always think it's odd when sprinklers are on during the rain...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Big fluffy white snowflakes are falling from the skies here! As long as we don't end up with two feet of snow again I don't mind.

Happy weekend to you and Charlie!

The Golden Eagle said...

They were cleaning windows . . . when it was already raining?! That's weird. :P

Rene said...

Having a lawn sprinkler on while it rains? IMO that's just wasteful. Sheesh.

Ellie said...

Gosh. It absolutely hammered it down this afternoon. Where has all the rain come from?

Lynda Young said...

Hmm...sprinklers in the rain...lol.

I love the rain. Heavy rain, light rain, any kind of rain -- except when I have to catch public transport lol.

soggibottom said...

Charlie smells mouse. :-)
You didn't have a mouse in your wellies did you ?

Keep dry, although you might see us float by sometime. Going to be wet down here. Noah eat your heart out :-)
Luv AMIE SOTO BLOSSOM :-) x x x

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We've heard of wellies and just googled them. Jan says she remembers when she was a girl in the dinosaur age that kids wore boots or galoshes in the rain, along with a raincoat and hat. But she hasn't seen a raincoat or rain boots of any kind in millenia. Or is that decades?

ABBY said...

ha!
Those hoomans are funny.
washing wet windows.

HI Charlie!!!!!!!!!

Have a happy weekend.

♥♥♥

RaShelle said...

That's hilarious. It was the scheduled day to clean the windows, so they "cleaned" the windows. LOL. Glad you got to wear your wellies (love the name). =D

I you and Charlie (you adorable kitty) have a wonderful weekend.

Maria McKenzie said...

Window washing in the rain? Hmm...

Reenie said...

Oh, I love me a good rain!

Pics of your wells please!!!!!

Dempsey Sanders said...

I really need a pair of wellies, its raining here heavily too today, and had been last night, if it carries on, scrub wellies from the list, I will be needing inflatables

LTM said...

LOL@Charlie! :D Cat's worst nightmare... I hate seeing lawn sprinklers going in the rain. It irritates the hippie in me. :D LOL! <3

Esme said...

Charlie stay dry-I want to see your raincoat and Wellingtons.

roxy said...

Bet you did look kick-a, Kitty. I want a pair of wellies so bad! I've asked for them as a birthday gift for the last three years, but without success. Maybe this time it will work! Have the best weekend, Charlie and K.

Mr Puddy said...

Washing windows in the rain ?
That idea need to be repair !!!!

KarenMcG said...

Oh Charlie,

Rain water and soap suds! Are you getting ready for a "b-a-t-h!?

Old Kitty, grab him now!

We're glad you stopped by today. And we hope you have a nice weekend.

Cokie the Cat said...

LOL! Wellies always put me in mind of European rock festivals - are they *always* muddy?? And are Wellie's actually comfortable? The only rainboots mom has worn have given her blisters.

Admittedly I she hasn't found herself sloshing about in the mud very often here in Hollywood. Mostly concrete and hills you wouldn't want to navigate when drenched!

penandpaints said...

There's some fab wellies about these days, mine are covered in smarties (not real ones, that would be just a waste of smarties, all the colours running in the rain and all...pretty though)
I saw a window cleaner up a ladder in the snow, his ladder was planted on a rather icy pavement, which I thought was rather dangeroose!
Have a great weekend!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I can't believe anyone would need to water their grass in January! When are we going to see these biker wellies???

Manzanita said...

For the past three days, it's been raining in Montana. A little odd for January. I don't have wellies but just some old rubber boots and raincoat.

The Creek Cats said...

Sounds like a few people were confused or maybe didn't seen the rain?! MOL!

Joanna St. James said...

ha ha I met a guy who told me he was a glass technician turns out he cleans windows.
