When it’s 100 degrees in Los Angeles, taking a movie in the Pacific Northwest sounds even better than usual. Is that D.K. Holm hanging out in front of the Cinema 21 in Portland, Oregon? Maybe it's Ted Mahar. Whoever that lad on the sidewalk is, he undoubtedly knows, as do I, that a little drizzle (and even a rainbow) goes well with a movie, matinee or nighttime show.

Having wonderful time. Wish I was there.

Give me some rain right now. That looks like heaven.

Doesn't it? I'm not asking for a deluge. It's just that when I see a picture like this one, I'm reminded of how much just a bit of weather like this can mean, not only to a water-starved region like Los Angeles, but just on a personal level. Phillip, here's a piece by a fine author from my alma mater that says it all for me: "I Love the Rain."

Not to change the subject Dennis, but speaking of "Heat Waves" I just noticed that your counter turned another milestone by passing the 200,000 visit mark. I do believe that your second 100,000 visiters was much, much faster than your first 100,000. Congrats Cuz.
