Raining Cats and Dogs?

Perhaps it's because I'm a writer but I love to learn the origin of various phrases and words. Who knew that HooplaHa ( would have a series of videos devoted to that very thing?

How does that fit into my blog about dogs and cats? HooplaHa has a new video series called Everyday Phrases and the third entry is the origin of the expression It's Raining Cats and Dogs.  Portraying Professor Good N' Well in the series is comedian Eddie Brill. 

You can check out the series and other fun videos at HooplaHa's website. Meanwhile, I have their permission to share It's Raining Cats and Dogs with you for a little weekend fun!

I love when you insert humor into your blogs and books. This is just pure fun, so thank you, Darlene Arden. "Raining Cats and Dogs" is a phrase I've often wondered from whence it came. Now I know. Thanks for including the video telling its origin I'm also glad to know about HooplaHa. As I said, just pure fun.
