In the neighbourhood

I’m in a hurry, so here’s just a few snippets of neighbourhood news…

  • Tonight we lost an hour of power, again. The electricity company didn’t tell us why, and you can bet they won’t give us a refund! While the power was out we took the opportunity to run down to the supermarket and get a new torch battery and some candles. (Why is it you never think of those things until you need them?)
  • Speaking of electricity, a possum has fallen foul of it on a wire just outside our house. It’s now hanging dead from the pole, and what a lovely sight it makes, too.
  • Our street got new lines painted on it. Wow. That’s our taxes at work. Impressive, huh?
