21 years ago today I was playing
in the street with some neighborhood kid, we were lighting short-fused firecrackers
that we found somewhere
. I remember watching him as he tried to light one, when my eye
wandered to the blue sky, There I saw the biggest black rain
cloud towering above the world.
LOOK AT THAT HUGE RAINCLOUD!!!!
I exclaimed to my friend. The shadowy form kept rising and rising and rising, soon we realized that what we were seeing was in fact A VOLCANO BLOWING ITS TOP!
It was Mt. St. Helens. Poor Harry Truman with his 40 cats had finally had it.
Two decades later I still remember this as vividly as if it were yesterday.
