I Was Smiling, Until . . .
February 13, 2010
There was a break in the rain and the sun was shining today. I went out into the garden and it had that smell. You know the one. Moist dirt after a fresh rain – waiting to be tilled and filled with spring seedlings.
I spotted this:
In February !
And I smiled.
Then I looked down.
Has a large reptile hatched in my driveway ?
I was puzzled. What could these be ? Where could this have come from ?
Then I looked up to the second story gutters.
Paint chips on the ground all around the entire house.
Ah, the joys of home ownership.
Poor Mr. CG – away at a man-rugby-beer-poker-dude weekend with his buds until tomorrow. He will not be pleased when he returns to see this.
I see in my crystal ball a weekend of silent cursing and climbing up a very tall ladder.
And it ain’t gonna be me.
