A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/childhood-revisited-2/
So, yesterday evening, as I was relaxing from a busy day (yes, meaning watching TV ok??), the phone rings and it’s Kevin calling from work. Apparently, they were all working away when suddenly they heard what sounded like a gunshot (alternatively described by Kevin as kaapow!, kaablowie, or kaablam – and he did describe it to me many times last night). He went into the spare office (soon to be a second exam room) and found that his bike tire had exploded. Just sitting there, minding its own business, and kaablam!
At least he wasn’t on the bike riding at his usual break-neck speed when it went kaablowie! (I much prefer kaablowie to kaablam, although it’s true that I wasn’t there to hear it…)
To calm your nerves now, here are some pictures to complement yesterday’s series of the back yard from the deck: the back yard from the back yard. Tomorrow, I’ll show you some of the blooms going wild down there!
