Sitting Proudly

Just inside this artsy shop called “Islantique,” proudly sits The Big Bad Rain Monster.  See it there on the top shelf next to The Pirates?  Oh, The Monster is not afraid of Pirates; in fact, The Monster is extremely well liked by the other shelf dwellers and especially by all the shoppers that saunter in.  Go ahead, take a look for yourself.

One huge misconception about living on an island is that traffic is nonexistent.  What a colossal fallacy!  The roads here are so congested that driving anywhere is an ordeal;  the roundabouts (traffic circles) are time consuming; and finding a parking spot on the main street in town is close to impossible, except maybe on weekends.  For the past two Saturdays, I’ve been living the good life, zipping through all, and actually parking my Kia Sportage directly in front of the store of my choice, with only a minimum of bothersome traffic.
