So…I know I just sent a blog out yesterday but I just had to share this experience.
You all know that I end each blog with either “happy gardening” or “happy garden thoughts” (when the garden season is over or not yet begun).
*Ahem* Well apparently I guess I am just a little too happy and Ms. Thing–otherwise known as Irene–tried to do my happy hind parts in.
Yes, we weathered the storm last night. Just a lot of rain and wind. I didn’t know it but my hubby said the power went out for about 30 seconds at around 11:45pm. I didn’t even know…I was fast asleep. Well, I woke up this mornin‘ just happy (see….there’s that word again) that things didn’t get crazy.
Then my phone rings. It’s 6:00AM. I’m thinking it’s my parents calling to see if we are OK. Nope. It’s my neighbor Steve. Here’s how the conversation went down:
Me: “Hey Steve!” (I saw his name on the caller ID)
Steve: “Hey, honey, I’m sorry about the damage to your cage.”
Me (inside voice): Oh damn, what the (&$#(&#(& happened now?!
Me(outside voice): “What do you mean?”
Steve: “My tree fell on your garden cage.”
Me: (silence as I run to the back window) “Oh. I see it. OK. It just looks like the branches are leaning on the chicken wire. None of the beams are broken.”
Steve: “Honey, we are getting that tree removed as soon as possible and will pay for any damage.”
Me: “Aww thanks, Steve.”
Then I went outside to get a closer look to be sure there was no damage and here is what I saw:
I don’t need to remind y’all of what happened to my cage during Snowmageddon:
So I guess I should be thanking Irene. Yeah, whateverrrrrr! She still tried to do my cage in!
Well, I’m going to read more about hydroponics, y’all!
Until next time…..
Don’t worry….be HAPPY!!
