I should have known when I spilled my coffee @ Church Council!
When I got home tonight I let the dog and cat play in the stairwell, so they wouldn't get up at the window and pull down my clean curtains looking for me; out the front window while I was in the Laundromat cleaning and closing up for the night.
I could hear them running up and down the stairs having a ball as I mopped. When I finished up, I turned off the lights and headed for the front door. The front door that wouldn't open!
It seems the "boys" knocked down the snow shovel which is just the right size to fit between the door and the bottom stair! I thought maybe it was my vacuum but at that point I didn't know.
In my younger days I would have simply scaled the side of the building and pulled myself up over the back deck. I have a bit of a paunch these days so I was thinking that I had better find another way in. So I knocked on the tenant’s door and asked if I could use his deck...
He “stirruped” me up onto the roof from his side of the building. I then walked across the top of the building in the dark along the edge 2 stories up. :0)
When I reached my side of the store I grabbed onto an exhaust pipe and swung down over the roof above my deck... :O
...ripped up my left arm, fell on my BUTT, rolled across the deck up against the rail and dropped my pride over the edge!
I am SOOO out of shape and gettin' OLD!
Just goes to show you the LORD still has a plan for me!
That and I still have DUMB LUCK!
(...oh Mr. Bushmills... Can you say: "Medicinal Purposes" ?)
