Soaked, Illustration Friday

Guilty of being thirsty! I've never taken sand to the beach, or coals to Newcastle, but I've been soaked for buying bottled water, even when there's a tap! But in my defense, I do recycle those bottles...
And on a serious note-
It was difficult to play along with this week's challenge, when citizens in parts of our country are dealing with the devastation of severe weather and flooding. My heart goes out to all who've been affected.

  7. A really clever one here Michele. I do drink from the tap as our water is really tasty but I confess not so when on holiday...I also get soaked (and overcharged) for bottled water. I put my empties in the recyling though..honest!I love the "rollup rollup" attitude of the lead fish!
    Have a great weekend, stay dry.

  20. Certain parts of a cruiser will rust if left out in wet conditions, especially the chain, and if the chain rusts you cruiser will not ride as smooth as it should.
