So we had a storm. First, the wind blew out the pilot light on the water heater.
Then the wind blew the side fence over at an angle of 30 degrees leaning into the street; its jagged edges just waiting to decapitate the early morning joggers. The gutter is conveniently placed nearby to catch their heads.
I had to get the care serviced. I get it serviced every year whether it needs it or not. This year it only cost $210. I think the mechanic was pleased that I warned him to put a plastic sheet on the car seat to protect his overalls.
The side wing of my glasses fell off, but the wasn't caused by the storm.
The good news is that the glasses will be fixed under warranty.
The fence repairer wants $ 40 a metre to fix it. (10 x 40 = $400).
Where am I am going to find $400?
Mature age men don't usually make that much money in a month, no matter what talents they may have.
So I find the local Tool hire shop and guess what? They have a post hole digger for $80 a day.
I'll need 9 posts and 3 bags of cement. Oh goody I can do it myself and save $200.
The supermarket has stopped making fresh donuts. What will we have for breakfast now?
I'm exhausted just thinking about it all...I'm going to have a rest.
At least the wind has stopped.
