What? That Was An Earthquake?
When I was still in bed this morning stretched out on my back I felt what seemed like when a fat cat jumps on the foot of my bed. Susie is an outside cat. Surely she didn't run in when John opened the door. Susie doesn't do things like that. I raised up to look at the foot of my bed to see what was there. Nothing, nil, zero. So I looked down beside the bed and there was nothing there. What was that? Not my imagination? After a while I got up and went to the living room where John was watching TV. There has been an earthquake he said so we sat and watched the news people saying how their phones had lit up and they started interviewing people. Some didn't feel a thing, some said furniture moved. Some blamed the oil drilling but a supposedly expert says that is not to blame.Oh well I got four phone calls out of it. Both my daughters called, an old friend from Widowed Person's Sevices, and a tenant that I was landlady to back in the 70's. I guess they were all imagining me down in a deep crack with my voice echoing "help". So it was nice a few did care but it didn't actually happen here it was closer to where we go buy the cattle feed. It was an exciting morning to say the least.
