The smell’s the same, but it’s quiet.
Maybe I can enjoy the show as They do and appreciate the pretty lights and shapes.
No more will I have to shake, cower and hide in terror at the whizz, bang and pops I don’t understand.
Perhaps losing my hearing’s not a bad thing afterall.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Loss of hearing can bring peace to some!

    I also found this with my one dog who freaked out over thunder. It was a mixed blessing when she started to go deaf.

    • Maggie doesn’t like thunder much either, but the atmosphere is so thick she picks up on that. I lost one of my dogs to thunder many years ago as the only option we had was to dose her with tranquilizers every day just in case as we were both working. A junkie dog is no life and I still feel bad about it, but when she went nuts on her own and wrecked the kitchen, it was amazing she didn’t electrocute herself or throw herself through the glass door.

    I am quite certain that dogs and cats often think their people are nuts. July 4 probably confirms
    it for them. Thank for sharing your lines.
