How perfect, a rainy Sunday. After a rather tempestuous week for everyone in Ames a chance to kind of wind down and just relax. We  received some much needed rain without severity. Of course my old man's malady of bursitis was a little worse but I'll gladly exchange a little pain for rain. Got my Sunday Edition of the Wall Street Journal and even though my investments in 8 Track Inc. and VCR Plus have once again taken a fall I felt alright. If your activities included outdoor activities I'm sorry, but a nice walk in a gentle rain (umbrella suggested) is always refreshing. Sunday was truly a day of rest and contemplation for the very busy week that began today. Enjoy your week despite this touch of snow
