<Chirp>.This house lives in the middle of a corn field over in Deltaville, which is north of Mathews between the Rappahannock and Piankatank rivers. Deltaville is a close cousin of Mathews in that its terrain, architecture and pace of life are very close to what we enjoy here.
<Chirp.> I'd really love to discuss this photo; about past vs. present. About how the corn crops are alive, tended to and under control; and the house had life but is now unattended, left to the mercy of the elements. The colors of the picture--brown signifying decay and green signifying life--further illustrate this life and death, past and present theme.Interestingly, this picture shows the controlled crops in a decaying state of brown while the uncontrolled growth at the steps of the house are green and full of life. Oh, how I could expand upon that. <Chirp.>
Yes, I'd really love to discuss all that at length, but I can't. <Chirp.>
Right now, my nerves and sanity are being tested by a chirping smoke detector which has been dangling from my bedroom ceiling for
Every so often is shorthand for Oh please make it stop.
And now, <chirp> a few questions:
Does everything have to be a <chirp> struggle? Is there any rest for the weary? Have you almost electrocuted yourself while teetering on a chair trying to yank a hard-wired smoke detector from the ceiling? Out of sheer <chirp> despair and frustration due to a chirping smoke detector, have you ever tilted your head backwards, closed your eyes, then glanced upwards only to see that on your <chirp> ceiling there is a granddaddy long legs spider making himself quite at home?
In your house or in your life, is there something that ought to be simple to fix but isn't and it's driving you crazy?
