Super Moons and Tornadoes - Bah, Hum Bug!
Well - if it’s not one thing - it’s another. The “ Super Moon “ we all saw over this past week decided to dish out quite a bit of struggle for me.
You would be looking at a brand new lockset that we had to purchase.
As if a bad day of plans already jacked up weren’t enough - for whatever reason - the lockset on the back door of our house decided to just - snap.
( Please excuse the mess Carlie left on the glass with muddy feet ! )
The lockset was replaced just in time. We ended up with a storm coming through on Wednesday night that left some serious damage in our area. A tornado rated EF-3 by the National Weather Service got busy only ½ mile away from our daughter, Jennifer, and her boyfriend, Josh.
We live about 10 miles from that location. However - the tornado traveled right past our house before touching ground.
We - were - BLESSED. Everything on our back porch was shoved all the way to the eastern end. Dwayne had to hunt for pieces for the Bar-B-Que Smoker scattered all over the property.
We’ve ended up having to put a lock on the main door to our Chicken coop. Our egg count dropped from 8-9 to 3-4 almost overnight. And I’d had two incidents when I found the coop door open.
Jen was visiting with me during the second incident. We jumped right back up to 8-9 after putting the lock on the door - immediately.
I ended up locking the keys inside the chicken coop on Tuesday morning. Fortunately - I had enough brains to set them on the window sill. Popping the screen helped retain some sanity. Chasing dogs and chickens all day became a total work-out on my body. However - Productivity took a dump.
We’ve had a few days of really warm weather - until the passing of this storm that came through Wednesday night.
I'll die if this becomes the next " Hip-Hop Hair Noise " fad.
Zucker just wasn’t into it.
He got over being mad at me - after I took him to the mirror.
My pups are so vain.
