A real shocker this morning!
It rained the whole night and was still raining when I jumped out of bed.
Boiled the kettle for a cup of tea. Took Trompie’s food out of the fridge to feed him.
I usually loosen the food in the tin on the way to the laundry where Trompie’s bowl waits.
I bent over and emptied the tin. While doing that Trompie patiently waited for me to let him lick off the spoon.
This morning was different. As soon as Trompie came nearer to lick the spoon, I felt, or kind of heard something and Trompie gave a little woof, and all burst lose. A hard rattling rumbling sound came along. The outdoor rattled. Remember, I was still standing bent over. Before I could decide to hide under a table or a doorframe, it was over. That all happened at 7:54 am.
