Enough is Enough

Funny, I know that fireworks are illegal in the city of Houston, but in the county they are not. Oh joy. You'd think people would not want to shoot off fireworks in the pouring down rain. Oh no, I think they do more. It started raining last weekend. As usual the minute the thunder started the fence climbing dog next door freaked. When I last saw him he was teetering on top of the six foot fence at the back of his yard. Naturally he was still on his chain. Next thing I see is my neighbor trying unsucessfully grab him from the fence. It didnt work. Over the fence the yapping dog went. Then the yapping stopped. I dont know what happened at that point. I hope the dog got away. I dont want to think of the other alternative. Of course I really didnt need to see my neighbor stark naked trying to climb the fence either. The sight of a short heavy black man naked is not what I wanted to see. Cheez.

So if that wasnt enough Daisy, who at first was terrified of fireworks, no longer sat in the chair quivering. Oh no, now she decided that she was mad. Ever listen to a dog bark non stop for hours? Now she considers it her job to rid her yard of the intruders by barking. She insisted on going outside to voice her opinion. With the hair on her back standing tall, she raced around the yard voicing her displeasure at all the noise! All night long the fireworks went on and on and on. One am, two am etc. How come Daisy didnt get hoarse? There was so much smoke in the neighborhood, I could barely see. Add this to non-stop rain, we have a mess. So far five inches of rain have accumulated in my rain gauge since this week-end. Bewteen fireworks and rain, it was a mess. I have no doubt there will be more fireworks and morde rain. Weather guys all say this will continue all week. Now where did I park my ark?

Dr. John's marathon was such a great idea, I decided to visit each blog, even though the marathon is over. The thought of a dog teetering on top of a fence was funny to me. The thought of "any" short man naked is something I wouldn't want to see..

Hee Hee! Short naked men! If he came over into your yard he would have lots of vulnerable places for Lady and Daisy to bite him. A guy called the Scotman used to visit my blog and when I followed his link back to his blog it was full of photos of nudists- ewwww! Why he was visiting a dog's blog, I have no idea-LOL! I think humans look ridiculas naked.

It was quiet in our neighborhood last night- thank goodness. I don't think my nerves could take another night of firecrackers.

Maybe Lady and Daisy could share a blog and take turns writing in it?

I sure hope your fireworks are over for this year.
Big Wags,
Isabella
