Locked Out…

Locked Out…

My son and his girlfriend and I were out enjoying a lovely dinner, when suddenly thunder and lightning flashed, followed by pouring rain,  falling harder and harder.  We were seated outside on the sidewalk,  luckily, we had an awning protecting us overhead but not enough to stop the rain from splashing back up, making us [...]
