The other day I just had a feeling that the day was not going to be a normally peaceful day.
I don't know why - just a feeling I got.
But, as the morning progressed and nothing strange had happened I started to think the day was going to be okay.
That was foolish on my part.
You see, the day turned out to be anything but normal. It was actually a cool, crisp day to the start of Fall which was a pleasant relief from all the hot, humid days we've been experiencing.
So, hubby and I decided to go for a walk. Since it was so beautiful out we decided to go for a long, leisurely stroll - and that was our mistake!
As we were pulling into the driveway hubby and I got a sense that something wasn't right. The ground was shaking and the house was being rocked off it's foundation.
And, we do mean off its' foundation - hard as that may seem for you to believe.
We looked at each other and said, "what on heaven's earth is going on?" The house was literally rocking to and fro.
As we gingerly stepped out of the car we realized it couldn't be an earthquake as the ground under our feet wasn't moving - thank goodness for that! But, the house was still rockin to and fro!
And, out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw movement in the windows. Not just movement in one window - but, all of the windows. As if someone were peeking out the windows and realized too late they had been seen. Now we knew something was going on inside the house.
And, then we heard it - LOUD music.
Not just any music, but the song "The Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett was playing louder than was acceptable in our neighborhood.
We were surprised that we hadn't heard the LOUD music as we were driving up the street.
