Thank You...For the Old Cupboard... {and...Holy High Lines! Bat Man!}

The Cupboard Fairy, left us a Beautiful Gift...at John's Shop...in the Night!
I don't know who....But...I Thank Ya!
I thought John was kidding...when he handed me this note...!
It's Very Cool...and...so old....
I'm Thankful...they took the time to load it...and bring it....instead of throwing it on a Burn Pile!
Bless Their Heart!
John will do  a Little Fixin'...and it will find a Good Home!
As I was snapping an image...of this...this morn...it sounded like a Bomb went off...Then...I heard Horrible...Electrical Humming...coming from near the Barn...! Scout was Flyin'.... Then...I saw the High lines spark... over and over....from Post to Post! I was RUNNING!!! The Power was Surging...in John's Shop... Then...FIRE coming from the Field!!! I ran to get Scout's Halter... John and the Guys...called Spanky{Fairfax Fire Dept. } and 911....
Holy Smokes!
A Main Power line went down...over Highway 151, and on our property... Started the field on fire... Thankfully...no one was hit...by the downed wire...but we had a Major Log Jam...of Traffic!
Holy Smokes!
{I was Flyin'!!!!! I hate the Sound of Live....Humming Electricity!!! I can even feel Lightning in the air...before I can see it....EEEEWWWWW....It makes the hair on my entire body Stand on End!!!}
Everyone is o.k.
{Critters...too..}
Don't know about our field...or fence... but...that's o.k.
Oh My....
A lesson learned... I ran out...to snap the image of the cupboard...like a Hag in a Bag....No Contacts...mascara...like football players...under my eyes....hadn't brushed my mop...Barefooted...and must have been seen by 200 people....
oh my....
I should Never leave the house....
for...any reason...until I have washed my face!
{Thankfully...I wasn't in my PJ's.... I almost...didn't get dressed....YIKES!!!}
Love...to Ya...
I had the 'zoom'...on the camera....I wouldn't go near that wire...{BUZZZZZZ} I kept...calling to the Guys...to "Get Back...Over Here...." {they don't Ever Listen!} Man! or...should I say..."Men"!

Yikes- scary! Glad all is well and I laughed when I read your description of yourself. I slept late this morning and was just wandering around the house in my jammies when a guy appeared on my deck to prep it for painting -eeeek!
Isn't that just the way it always happens?

Living where the shop is... can be pretty Scary...For the Customers!
Especially...if they come by...unexpected...or early...
I have a 'routine'...of sorts... and...'I'..am Last...on the to do list...
Polly....first... Coffee...second...
Blog...E-mail and Facebook...
