Three nights in a row, we were under attack from firecrackers, cherry bombs, hissing and booming rockers. THREE NIGHTS
I was exhausted from pacing and lack of sleep.
Saturday, AM I slept all morning, the sleep of exhaustion and then at 3:30 pm
Knock Knock Knock
WOOO WOOO WOOO let them IN, I say let them IN!
Some Ones are at the door and Mama let Two Men and a Boy in the house!
I thought they came to visit me.
Remember Humberto the A to Z Handy Man that came and made the door slide easy?
The Two men were Humberto's Brothers. They brought the boy as a helper.
See the crack the red arrow is pointing to?
That is the seam where the sheet rock of the ceiling came loose.
It has been hanging down for 87 years and Mama was always nagging Daddy to
get it fixed.
It was about 4 feet across and Suddenly when Mama got up one morning it was lower and longer and about to fall down.
On our heads! or so she said to Daddy.
without another word she dialed Humberto and he said he would come Saturday Afternoon and fix it.
Daddy was unhappy!
At 2:30 Humberto called and said he was stuck at another house and could not come, and I heard Mama in her PANIC voice say YOU ARE NOT COMING????
I could not hear Humberto, but Mama told Daddy he said he would send his brothers.
Daddy was unhappy!
I was happy because there were THREE humans in the house.
2 men and a Boy... WOOOO WOOOO
We all sat in the living room and watched them drill, and screw stuff and dab stuff and
one hour later the ceiling was repaired, and the company left, and I had been awake all the time they were here and then we went to bed and the IDIOTS made loud noise and I paced
and Mama petted me, we finally went to sleep but then Mama woke up at 2:30 am and went in the
living room and sat down with her kindle to read.
AT 2:30 AM she was reading. I got on the sofa and slept.
I slept and slept and slept and did not get off the sofa for hours.
Then SHE came with the cell phone
and here I am
Exhausted! fending off cell phones and wondering how many more nights until the
bombs stop dropping.
Mama Said Two More Nights. to be continued
