I’m writing you a quick note and reminding you, if you are not experiencing near-record flooding, to count your dry little blessings. Although our place is as lush and green and wet as I’ve ever seen it (I am thankful that we are not in a drought) the clouds of mosquitoes are ravenous and follow me around from early morning until late evening, when I usually tire of swatting them away and feel a bit nervey about spraying myself with mosquito spray one more time, and retreat to the inside.
To make matters even more confusing and grim, a road crew, in repairing a hole in the road that the flood waters washed out, cut a telephone line (our telephone line) and so we’ve been without ‘phone service and internet for several days, and it’ll be several more days before they get a guy with a backhoe and a “splicing crew” to repair it. Bother.
I’m typing this quick note to you, Gentle Reader, because I love you and don’t want you to think that I’ve fallen off the edge of this wet and mosquitoey world.
Some photos for proof:
I’m typing as quickly as I can, sitting in McDonald’s and enjoying the free wifi. Thank you, McDonald’s! But my time is up and I must go!
What’s going on at your house? Whatever it is, I hope you are hanging in there! Thank you again for reading!
