Rough Seven Days

Nov 21, 20017: Storage shed door ripped of its hinges, garage door clasp cut in half. Both doors still had their locks engaged.

Nov 22, 2017: While trying to repair my security light, I fell. Right side screwed up.

Nov 28, 2017: While seeing my doctor for the injuries on the 22nd, a car plows through my from yard and wipes out my fence.

Enough?

History, July 5th

Let's see:
Another noisy 4th in the books,
Another pilot-less parachute in the back yard,
Down the street, something that was suppose to go up, went sideways.
Meth-lab across the street, is no more.
Got my loan modification.
My aunt passed away.
Something had me for lunch.
Windows ate itself, again. (Found out why)
I'm done. I'm looking forward to work, tomorrow.

A World Without Technology

The last few days have not been fun. As noted previously, my neighborhood experienced a power outage. I had plenty of flashlights and batteries. Putting the two together in a blackout, was an annoying challenge.

Once power came back on it was time to check the fridge. Everything is spoiled, even the ice in the ice tray had taken on a new shape. The thermometers were at 70 in both units.

But one thing is sticking with me. Out of boredom, I sat down and looked out the window; I was fascinated by how the leaves moved as the cars passed on the street. Between God and Mother Nature, there is a lot out there. I think technology has taken a lot of what God and Nature have given us, away from us.

I did get a couple of walks in. Not a mile or so, but I did get out of the house.

I got very little done on my list for this weekend. But you know, I got to see something I've long forgotten about. Just to relax and watch nature do her thing.

Peace.

Split Pole.

Pickup truck vs pole. Pole lost, as did my electricity, all the food in my fridge, a fire hydrant; and my Internet connection is spotty. The truck didn't look all that bad, the driver walked away. Power was out from 1806 to 0752. Just a little shy of 14 hours.

Split Pole.

An Empty Parachute

A parachute just landed in my yard... unattached. I hope the pilot is okay.
