Our doorbell only works sometimes. So someone was outside the front door, presumably having rung the non-working doorbell.

The pekes and I were dancing around the house but I passed by in that pause, and through the lace curtains, with very poor vision, I thought it was Kenny hanging out there.. and flashed him.

As soon as I realized it wasn’t my beloved at the door, I called his cellphone (he was in the workshop out back) and said,

“Come here and answer the door, I just flashed whoever it is out front, thinking it was you!”

Then I hid: a naked coward… shivering in shame.

Turns out, it was our neighbor who I haven’t met yet… I guess we’re acquainted now!

The wreath is still up so that probably helped hide me. Being lazy pays off, once again!

Just another day in my absurd existence!

It sure took Kenny long enough to replace it… he delights in my idiocy!

In 1942, she was moved a mile South, along with the rest of the town of Coldwater (including a massive church) to make way for the Arkabutla Reservoir, built by the WPA in response to the Great…
