Rainy Days and Monday (Used to) Always Get Me Down—with Apologies to the Carpenters


Several people shared that the best thing when you first retire is No More Mondays.

I wasn’t a fan of rainy days because as a sales representative, I was slogging in and out of my trunk and into offices. I had to keep my materials and computer dry. Rain is best enjoyed from inside a warm house with a cup of tea or an exotic locale like Lake Como or Venice. When you say, “I am cold and wet” but add the phrase — ” in Venice or by Lake Como”, the experience becomes an adventure!  The photo below was taken on the Grand Canal in Venice.  We are riding in the front of the vaporietto–a water bus.
