Not only was it a bummer day, Friday, but also a bummer night. We had a big storm with lots of wind and those noisy white snakes that dance across the sky with their big old drums that make so much noise.
Mom says their names are Thunder and Lightening. I’m sure glad that Dad was here when THAT dance started. Those old drums hurt the ears!!!
Robert got all wet when he was unloading the car, and Mom got the groceries put up, everyone fed (from the shopping, luckily, so it was fast). About the time she was half done, the lights went out. She was NOT HAPPY because she had just turned on the computer, and had planned a good two hours of work on it. Apparently, when the white snakes dance, they sometimes steal your lights.
Robert and Dad had to hunt around in the dark, because our emergency backup light didn’t work, and find the flashlights so they could light up canned dulls. THAT was interesting because they don’t smell dull at all! They sort of smell like food or flowers!
Mom went out and fed the horses during a break in the sprinkles, using her flashlight, and then everyone got ready for bed, because when Dad called the light people, they said it would be most of the night before we got our lights back. Now it would have been interesting to go out and watch them chase those noisy dancing snakes down…
The next day was much better because we got to go into town with everyone and let Mom's grandkids, and nieces color eggs. I LOVE little kids, though Dott doesn't care for them except Little Bear. One was my first master's daughter, and we had gotten really close when he had me before he had to give me back, and I wiggled all over my whole body when I got to see her and play with her again.
They hide them and sometimes don’t find all of them, and we get a treat of stinky egg if we find one later on. MMMmmm mmmm!
