The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”   — Dolly Parton

(Very appropriate for those of us in the Northeast United States, today!  I just wonder if Dolly was influenced in any way by another old Country standard.  “I beg your pardon.  I never promised you a rose garden.  Along with the sunshine, there’s got to be a little rain sometimes.”  That’s alright, ma’am.  I’m sure that when that someone was taking your quote you had to tell him:  Hey, bub!  My eyes are up here!) ;~) YUR
