Things Keep Fallin' On My Head....

Friday: chunks of neighbor's roof land in my backyard. No biggie, the guys are working on it.

Saturday: lightning hits huge oak tree in my front yard, splits it in half. It falls away from the house. (As my friend Rachel "La Dama de Las Vacas" said, "Someone's looking out for you guys.")
[DIH inspected the fallen limbs carefully. Not a single squirrel's nest. They were all still safely up in the tree, flipping me off.]

Monday: writing at favorite coffeeshop. CRASH. Scaffolding next to building (and right outside DIH's window) collapses.

This doesn't look good.

Your guardian angel is working overtime! (Good thing he's not like the one in that commercial, eh?)

Bad things come in threes? By my count, you are done.

Just to be on the safe side, stay off the golf course when it's raining.

Thanks, Sue. You wish you could play with HTML, I wish I could write for NRO. I guess we'll call it even! ;)

BTW, I grabbed a lot of free stuff from a site and just played with the code a bit once I figured out what it was looking for. Check out Mandarin Design. (http://www.mandarindesign.com/) They've got tons of information there.
