It’s raining men, hallelujah!

HA! No not really, but it’s raining rain! For all of you southern California readers you know what I’m talking about. Today was the first sunny day after a week of storms, wind, downpours, thunder and lightning. It was wet! Can you imagine if it really did rain men that whole time?! Whoa, that’d be a lot of men. But it’d make one heck of a Merry Christmas for The Cheeks! Heeheehee!
