I couldn't pass up displaying this picture.

I know rain depresses many people, especially when in some parts it never lets up for more than a day. In California, it seldom rains. At my shop, rain will drop the number of street artist drop-ins down to zero. Although these comical denizens supplied funny moments this year to write about, I don’t miss them when the rain limits their street excursions. Rain usually causes breakdowns; but if I’m successful in preaching preventative maintenance during the year, my regular customers don’t experience them. When rain falls like on Friday, the day proceeds with repair appointments, phone spam, glances out the big door at wet sidewalks, and quiet normalcy. Customers ask me all the time how I can stand working alone. I’m never alone. Characters run around in my head all day long, spouting dialogue, and telling tales. :)

That picture is so cute. I love it. I bet you don't miss the 'characters' at least the outside ones. ;)

After a year of describing their antics, it's not so funny anymore, Jordan. It helped me through the day to describe their visits though. Maybe next year they'll come up with some new material. :)

That picture is absolutely priceless, lol.

And agree about the characters in the head. Sometimes it's a bit much. Now, if they'd all get jobs and help pay the rent, we'd be in business. ;-)

LOL, Raine! I'd settle for them giving me some editing help. :)
