In the mist of the gas shortage which not everyone has heard about, and the draught, and the economic woes - the day was 'redeemed' by a woodpecker entertaining me getting ready for the day. He was hitting his beak against the window pane -his mating call I believe - why do they call like that - doesn't their head hurt?
By the way those spider webs are on the outside of my house - 45 feet up in the air! It's a hard window to clean from the outside.
We were at church one Sunday, the painter we hired, hired a homeless man to help him. Come to find out the homeless man had drank around 24 cans of beer before he was picked up to help paint our house. Our guy hired help because he was afraid of heights!
Our neighbor across the street is a nurse and by the time we got home the whole incident had cleared. The man lived - due to the amount of liquor he had inside him - the fall went easier and acted as a pain killer.
