Good Morning Neighbor

How are you this fine sunny morning?

It's a bit chilly out but, the sun is shining bright and nature's chorus is loudly in tune.

Robbie Raccoon was running a bit late this chilly dawn. He scampered across the yard, seemed in a big hurry to get home.

I wasn't quick enough to run out and get a picture of him. Even when they hop-along they're still faster than I am.

I don't know about you but, I do prefer my four legged neighbors more than I do my two legged ones.

I know, I know, I'm a bit anti-social. It's a learned attitude. I learned it quickly when I moved down here to Columbus. I'm not too impressed with anything that walks up-right and talks. They tend to say and do too many things that rub sane people the wrong way.

Hey, last night, did your lights go out?


I didn't think so. When my electricity popped off, I went to the door to see if the rest of you lost yours. It was strange. My house seemed to be the only one without power.

Your lights were on. My neighbors to the left and to the right of me, their lights were on.

I thought it was strange. I reset the breaker but, that didn't help.

I called the electric company and they said that they were getting reports of power outages in our area.

Funny you all weren't affected.

It took the electricians 5 hours to get to our street. Can you believe that, 5 hours!

I heard all this rumbling and roaring on the street announcing that they were finally here which, was a little after midnight. It only took them about half an hour or so to get us back up and running.

Oh well, go figure.

Would you like a cup-a-jo? Sit down while I get it.


  1. Next time I'm in your neighbourhood, we'll try and get a shot of Robbie!


Say HI! :)
