Back from Kentucky
The heavy rains in Kentucky were nothing compared to the winds & tornadoes in North Carolina, but by the time I got back all that was over with. We live in the western part of the state, and while I understand it was very stormy here, the severe damage happened much further east. We've had a series of quite violent storms this month, so far Valdese has been lucky.
My father, brother & I (in Kentucky) were sitting around talking about an elderly and "eccentric" neighbor, when my brother said "That old woman would irritate a rock".
Friday night we were entertained by a vacuum cleaner salesmen I inadvertently let into my father's house. It would require more explanation than anybody would care to read, but for some reason I thought they knew each other. From him I picked up a little tidbit that the vacuum cleaner has "no cost, but there is a price". I decided I'd remember that.
