For 15 minutes, I’ve been listening to someone


trying to break in my back door.

Clanking, rattling, thuds, spitting, hissing,

Forgot I was boiling eggs and nearly ran the pot dry.

Not my house but I did take the picture. It’s from my Wilmington NC collection as are most of cool old houses on my site.

  1. Hi Anna, a lovely house with a lovely white fence. In the very south of Chile there are houses like this one.
    Muchos cariños

    1. A white picket fence is so lovely anywhere isn’t it? Big hugs to you too.


  2. That one scared me, then it made me laugh. You are a clever girl! Glad you are safe and sound and eggs survived as well.


    1. Yes, the egg salad was good. I’m addicted to the stuff. I would bathe in it if it didn’t stink so badly. At first hearing the racket—I just thought Mr D was home for something cause our back door blinds clang when you come and go. Then he never showed up in the living room and I got scared. Then I got brave enough to research why the fool person was taking so long to break in….

    1. I know–eggs right….glad I did not call the cops. They would have just turned off that big old bad stove.

    1. I laughed my fool head off at that.

    Reminds me of the time my brother and I heard someone ransacking my aunt’s kitchen (my brother and I were spending a week visiting my cousins). Turned out to be the very clever cats, who had worked themselves into a cabinet filled with pots and pans. I felt kind of dumb the next morning. Glad your intruder was just eggs!


    1. That is hysterical. I can just imagine. This is not at all related but Mr D is quiet as a mouse and scares me half the time. I’m going to put a cow bell around his neck.


  6. What a lovely picture indeed. So was the breaking in sound…. the eggs boiling dry?


    1. Yes, I have a dry sense of humor. Sorry about that.

    1. It was the eggs boiling. I really did almost boil the eggs dry.
