Sunday, we went to our daughter's house to celebrate her birthday a bit early. Her lights went out for a few minutes
while we went frogging at the pond in their neighborhood.
Once you catch a frog (He was a big one) you team up with another
frog catcher (her dad) and you put them a few feet from the pond and see who hops to the pond first. B's big guy won!
By the time we left to go home (after dark) they had closed the easy access to home because of some accident. Sooooo We had to go all the way around....
To the Kancamagus highway (Ok highway is a very lose term here)
See this road? Think pitch dark! No bigger than a cow path at some points. It is used mainly for access to hiking trails in the White Mountains National Forest.
Across this bridge and onto the highway. Well at least it was wider than this cow path, and it had lines, it was very slow going for our old eyes.
We turn into our neighborhood over an hour later and we see a woman who we do not know walking with a flashlight and staring down at her phone??? I get a text from the neighbor "Do you have power?" Well, no we don't but the generator is happily going, and we are just fine. But the woman with the flashlight was staying at one of the air B and Bs here and when the power went out, we think she freaked. It is dark here no streetlights and no cell phone service. I have no idea where she walked to, but it would be a good 4 miles in either direction to pick up service. City folk lol. The lights were not out that long, and I hope she was fine. Oh, and my daughter reports we had just left, and they lost power. It was a dark night.
Ok I am having picture issues with my phone, but I did pick up my hook again and this is where I am on my rug. the right lower corner is all I have left. I am not sold on the border I have chosen that may change. But it felt good to hook and at least chat with other people even if they were just knitting lol.
This stuck me funny so I will leave you with this.
Have a wonderful week.
