An Afternoon Interrupted

Twas the afternoon before New Year's eve, eve
and DH was napping, can you believe?
It was cold outside and the wind was a blowing,
But so sad, it wasn't even snowing.
The kitties were sleeping on the tv,
Not a whisker was twitching, I can guarantee.
The boys were pretty quiet, doing their thing,
And mamma should have been stitching with her string.
When all of the sudden, there was a loud noise.
Much, much too loud to be one of the boys.
Daddy screamed and jumped out of bed,
Scared of what we had heard overhead.
We ran outside and looked at the roof,
We couldn't see anything, certainly not a hoof.
We went round the house and looked on the side,
and couldn't believe what we spied.
Our neighbor's dead tree had come through the fence,
Hit the roof and damaged the side, it just didn't make sense.
But what the heck, the house won't be here long,
Our next one will be super strong!

Thank heavens no one was hurt!! Your poem made me laugh though, I can just see your hubby jumping out of bed!! Good thing you weren't stitching or you could have stabbed yourself! So when is our next play date? *Hugs*

Oh gosh, making an early start on the demolition? At least you're all safe and sound.

Please could you invite me to stalk (oops, follow) your new house building blog.
