Did you miss me? Miss Penny speaking, you may have noticed I was absent last Saturday, I was miffed there was no blog. But Susan had a bit of a melt-down,
true… she almost lost it. Our neighbour above us, we live in a high-rise condo, has been throwing buckets of water and piles of soil off their balcony. The reason you won’t believe this… they have a big dog and they do not take him for walks.
Need I say more! After complaints from various neighbours, the condo management ordered them to clean up the mess, which they did all over us. Susan was busy writing and I was snoozing in my bed when we heard this loud, vigorous scrapping coming from above and then a deluge of ‘soil’ fell onto our balcony. So, with good reason, Susan lost it. However, the management
responded quickly and Sue, our wonderful condo cleaning lady, came up and swept everything up and scrubbed the balcony with industrial cleaner and disinfectant, which Susan thought smelt pretty good. Psst! I hate to say it but I preferred the other
smell, but then I’m a dog, sort of. Everything turned out well and the neighbours are behaving. I am so sad for that poor dog, I cannot image not going for walks, and meeting my friends, today I met a big black and white dog and then a small dog, even smaller than me. It would be nice if we could play together. Susan is giving me the what-about-writing look. The first chapter of The Heart of Sophie’s War is coming along, and lots of research about WW1. Did you know that it wasn’t just the terrible injuries that killed the soldiers but most often infection from the soil? The soldiers tramped on, lived on, and fought on mostly farmland soaked with manure and that caused the infections, a silent killer. Even I cringe at that thought.
