Alice Muschany, Opinion Shaper

Today's forecast for St. Peters, MO: Chance of thunderstorms, high 85 degrees.

How appropriate is it that this morning, on the kiddos' first day back at school, it rained? Why is is the fact that it rained this morning appropriate to today's post? Read on and you'll find out.

Alice Muschany, a wonderful writer and treasured member of our Tuesday Coffee and Critique group, has another opinion-shaper essay in today's St. Charles Section of the Suburban Journal. If you are a regular critique group member you might remember Alice's charming essay that she read some time ago.

In "Bring on the Rain," Alice writes with grace and humor about her adventure of having an in-ground swimming pool built. To read Alice's essay, click on the title above.

After reading Alice's essay, I say: Bring on the . . . applause!

Bravo, Alice. And here's to an early fall.
