Eyow dude! – When we had a fence installed in our yard, we had two workers here for five days. No radios, no yelling, no swearing. (Yes, I send a note of thanks about all that to the company.) There are contractors nearby starting a project and all I hear is hooting and hollering and a radio. At first I thought the screaming meant an accident so I rushed to check. No work. Just standing around. Must be talking about sports or something. Our houses are not close. Just because you are outside doesn’t mean you have to scream or blast your radio.
Thank God it’s over – I hate election time. The junk mail and robocalls intensify. We normally get about 3 to 5 robocalls a day. At election time they are hourly. We must appear to be stupid old people who believe Nigerian princes or IRS prank calls. We never answer the phone unless we are expecting a call. I don’t know how they get our number and I wish the phone company would come up with a blocking system. I would be willing to pay for the peace and quiet. Perhaps next year we’ll unplug.
A stunning fall – I live on a tree-lined street. Unfortunately, the developer used very cheap maples that don’t have fabulous fall color. They tend to get a yellow-brown shade. This fall they have been brilliant yellow which is accented by dogwoods and other trees that are red or orange. It has been so beautiful. This is the first time in twelve years and I don’t know why.
Sassy cats! — I’ve wanted to do “shorts” about critters without losing my eclectic appeal. (A short is a very short post, like a paragraph or two. The most creative writers can make it a sentence or even six words. Eclectic means I don’t have a theme but grasp at any passing straws!) If you find no humor in animal topics (my sympathies) you can skip over these. I plant to run them on Fridays.
So how was your week?
