Yes….. there was a power failure on out street today!  But for a change it didn’t affect OUR side of the street!!  They owe us like 10 to 1!!    But being the wonderful neighbors we are, we turned ALL of our lights on and then made faces at them!!   Hehe!!  Everytime the power goes out it’s  OUR side of the street!!
Apparently a transformer blew and it was LOUD!!  So we called our BEST neighbors and offered them anything we could give them….. hot food, oil lamps, a generator, freezer space, etc..  It’s getting late and their power is still out so we have been checking on them hourly!   And, to our surprise,  today was their 55th wedding anniversary!  So I brought them a ‘Yankee’ candle and a bottle of MUMM champagne!!  I have a feeling that we made their day, or night??
OK!  I tried to take a pic of the guys working on that transformer but it’s just too dark.  Say what you want, but these polemen have HUGE Huevos!!  At night, in the dark, 40 feet up on a pole and changing out a 900 pound transformer is above and beyond!
Here is the home in question….
Rainbow 003
We love these guys!!!!!
Notice…. NO lights!!!!  HEHEHE!!!

    Aww, Bob.  What a sweetheart you are!  Everyone should have neighbors like you and Becky.  Hope  you have a great weekend.  I’ll try to post some later, but this is ‘get our taxes done weekend’ so I’ll be busy trying squeeze something out of Uncle Sam!  🙂
