Things That Go Ding In The Night

Filed under: Uncategorized — chapterhouse @ 11:47 am

It was a dark and stormy night. No, really. It was dark. And our first drought-buster, frog-strangler line of thunderstorms dumped its load upon the land. (Hey, that was almost good!)

We were fast asleep (whatever that means). The doorbell awakened us. Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot? Who would be idiot enough to stand out there in this dark and stormy downpour ringing the doorbell? I mean, the doorbell was like, totally ringing its little head off.

Tomcat went to check it out while I cowered stayed in bed. No one was at the door. A phantom? Ah, it was a dark and stormy night with a phantom!

Nah. It was just that the electricity in the storm set off the thingy in our wireless doorbell. But that’s okay. It was BlogWorthy.



  1. Yikes! I hate that kind of stuff!! Gives me the heebie-jeebies….!! Maybe it was angels. 🙂

  3. Do you really think God would dump all that rain on you and then forget to collect on your water bill?

  4. Dan, we’ll pay for this in the summer when it’s 100 degrees plus. Unless we’re in NC by then!
