Flying Debris…


Late yesterday afternoon…I was sitting on the porch…enjoying the time just before it rains…I knew a thunderstorm was approaching…but…I was in Granny’s rocker…and…all was well…

When…without warning…the wind kicked up something fierce…I heard it was about 70 mph…I’m not sure…but it was strong…I watched as branches literally blew off trees…my neighbor’s garbage can did a tumble and a rumble…and…I was literally covered with debris flying in all directions…

Then…the wind died down and the rain commenced…and then…it was over…leaving scattered leaves and branches from the neighbor’s trees all over my yard…

Humph…I was minding my own business…when all this crap flew into my yard…and…now…I had to clean up the mess…

Bertha…laughed…saying that it reminded her a lot of my life…

Sometimes…I’m just minding my own business…living my own life…being in my own good mood…when a mess blows in…scattering debris all over me…

Hmmm…a few of those times come to mind…

But…she says…no real damage was done either way…and that all I have to do…is…clean up the debris…and go on…then…she handed me the broom to snag some branches out of the gutters…

Guess I’ll be picking up limbs this afternoon…
