True to form, because we watered the garden yesterday, it rained. Not just a drizzle but a torrential downpour through the night, and the wind………………….. oh my god, the wind.
All roof tiles are accounted for but when I walked the dog earlier, there were a few stray branches on the pathway. I didn’t see a soul.
I read in the news about an entire street coming out to sing Happy Birthday to an eight year old as she couldn’t have a party or friends in to celebrate her special day.
Have you ever dialled , or been, a wrong number?
I took a call yesterday from a number I didn’t recognise and an unfamiliar gentleman’s voice was equally as wary as I. I wasn’t too happy to give my name, but asked if he was doing OK and coping in the current crisis. He said he was and thanked me for my concern.
Then I heard someone in the background and everything twigged. It was someone we knew and I’d spoken to his wife the day before but their number didn’t come up on my call ID (now rectified). Seems he was trying to delete something and hit the wrong button, getting me. They are both in their 80s and doing well.
On the other end of the subject, several years ago I misdialled and sang Happy Birthday down the phone to someone who was not my mother. It made their day, and we had a pleasant chat for a few minutes then I wished her a happy non-birthday before ringing off.
So if someone calls who you don’t know, or you end up talking to someone because of a misplaced digit, pass the time of day, especially in the current circumstances when so many are in isolation and may be feeling alone, forgotten or lonely.
Keep safe everyone. Feel free to copy the image and spread the rainbow.
