Is "Ooo La La" French For 'Rainy Tennis'?!

     I shared the photo in my header today, which the description from the shop says was taken on Deer Island, a barrier island off the coast of Mississippi, because it looks sorta like my backyard this morning. Although it's not "after a storm" in my backyard. It's 'during' a raining of cats and dogs!! ^_^ UGH!
     We had a glimpse of sunshine yesterday and I thought maybe...just maybe!...we'd be able to 'skirt by' the forecast for rain today. But no. Once again, the weather people were 'right on'. UGH!
      I'm not gonna rant and rave, and get all huffy about it though, because I have tennis! :-) I'm watching Jo-Wilfried Tsonga play right now! :-)  I'm looking forward to a day of rain-free enjoyment! (The following photos were all taken from the Facebook site of the French Open at Roland Garros.)
      It wasn't rain-free in France at the French Open yesterday! O_O...

     In fact, I wasn't sure I was gonna get to see much tennis at all! It was 'pouring' at Roland Garros!!...But thankfully the clouds parted later in the day, and I got to see Novak Djokovic move on to round two. :-)
       I also got to see Marion Bartoli fight from behind and move on...

     ...and I also got to see Gaël Monfils go five sets with Tomas Berdych...and WIN!!!...

    Gaël has a new hair-do this year, and it seems that he has a new, more calm and cool, attitude this year too! And I think it's working for him!...the attitude I mean. I'm still not sure about the hair-do. :-)
     Anyway, that's all I have today. I've got tennis to watch!! ^_^ With two whole weeks of tennis I might end up with tennis elbow...of the eyes!! LOL 
      Have a good day, Everybody!...See you tomorrow....come rain or come shine! :-)

All The Things I Love

If I listed all the things I've loved
I could rattle on forever!
Whether by 'order of importance'
or by a poetically quick endeavor.

Right now it's Tennis...Well, all sports,
and reading informative magazines.
And crocheting, food and music.
Well..that might be in my genes!

I've loved teaching and line dancing,
So many things in my short life.
But I've never jumped from a plane,
or whittled anything with a knife!

With every passing moon
I find some other thing that I love.
Whether grassy patterns on my lawn,
or phenomenal skies above.

Yes, if I listed all the things I loved
my words could fill all space,
It comes from curiosity,
and an Ooo-ing Awww-ing place!
