"Down the Drain with Jane"
Tuesday, February 10, 2009 • Posted February 10, 2009

I started to think on Friday afternoon about what I was going to write about this week. No matter how many times I went to the bathroom, no subject came to mind. But, this all changed when I arrived at the house.

Winds were blowing up to thirty-five miles per hour and the house was open. I do say OPEN. Window, doors and the fans were a whirling! I had no idea as to why Z would open up the house on such a day, but he did.

I started shutting windows, picking up curtains that had been blown out of the windows and shutting doors. After that, I just sat down! However, Z was soon to come home and explained, that my “dogs,” had made a mess on the back porch and he was airing the house out.

Dogs are like children, when they mess up, they're always the others “Dogs/Kids,” not yours? I knew, that anyone, who would open up a house on such a day, was either an complete idiot or did it in a frantic state. I sure hoped Z was in a frantic state. He was, and I got a good dose of how the house smelled like a dog kennel and how he wanted the dogs to start staying out side at night. The list was rather extensive.

I got an early bed time and began the task of “REALLY” cleaning up the house. I love country houses, but without the half inch of dust. Z. did apologize for getting so upset with me, and admitted that Cousin Louie had a big part of the mess.

Saturday was spent with mop, broom, rug shampooer and the washing marching and dryer going at full force all day. Thank goodness for ShamWow’s! They’re made in Germany, you know!

Sunday, was a day of rest! Mostly, because I couldn’t move, too well!

P.S. I was hoping for some “Horse Sense,” in our government. But, it sure looks like all we have is more “HORSE APPLES!”
