the dry grass
staggers over the bridge
in need of a drink

Looks as dry there as here…we’re having another drought year…maybe some rain this winter.

I think you may have it a lot worse than us Charles – hope we all get some good rain

Excellent imagery – I think first of the Irony in the image of a staggering drunk who’s had too much, and then of the parched creatures in the desert. We’ve been having so much rain – will wish some up your way, Gabe.

yes I heard you’d been having a bit of rain – so unfair 😉 a drunk is always thirsty bb but this drought would turn even the most sober of farmers in search of a stiff drink or three!
