It’s a 105 hot degrees today, meaning the marbles in my brain recall ‘something silly’ – that happened in 1980s. My Dad wanted to try out the ‘summer screened room’, we all put up together in the back-yard area – everyone on the road had three acres or more.
Maybe, 2:00 am, I hear some unusual noise – crackling, get out of bed – look out all windows – do not want to wake anyone – dial the ‘operator’, need the Electric Co. – told them must be electric lines down – “Isee and hear sparks” flying around – down the road – with all the trees and bushes – can’t say for sure where the lines are down? They wanted my name and address. Went back to bed – fell sound asleep!
When I was getting ready for work in the morning – my Dad, said, the Electric Co. – pulled in the side driveway – the biggest thruck – lights all over – woke him up – and with only his shorts on . They said, someone at this address reported –“electric lines down.” The only thing they found was a “Bug Zapper” zapping bugs – down the road. He told them that “no one ” from here would do such a “Dumb Thing”
“Can you believe – I could do such a Dumb Thing?”
