Double Whammy


That’s the sound that woke me up this morning at about 3 am.

I was alone, up here in the woods, with just the cat and the dog for company so I couldn’t just roll over and nudge hubby. I had to investigate myself.

So, I dragged myself from bed.

The dog was sound asleep. So much for being my guard dog – she obviously heard nothing.

The cat couldn’t be found – another helpful animal.

So, after a quick walk about and after sleepily finding nothing really out of place I decided my silver feline must have knocked something off a shelf and was now in hiding so I took my groggy self back to bed.

This morning I went to open the sliding glass patio doors and one pane looked like this:

July 30, 2011 - Cottage Pictures 010

Yes, it's beautiful but it’s also going to fall all over my walkway and so it's now something I've added to the ‘needs to be fixed list’.

Yeah, that list.

That long long looooong list.

  1. That happened at our first house. It was during a heat wave and I guess the tempering of the glass wasn’t done quite right. Look for the serial number on the glass in the corner, if you still have it and call the manufacturer. Our fix was done free as it was a manufacturer defect!


  2. Influences among artists is an advantageous thread for DJs. Frank Zappa bought Edgard Varese records in his early teens. On the Fro Show, Jesse played “Dog Breath, In the Year of the Plague” from Zappa’s 1969 Uncle Meat next to Varese’s “Intégrales” The tracks sound different on first listen. But soak in how the high voices and the instrumental second half of Zappa’s track about “stealing hubcaps” sound like the orchestral abstractions in Varese’ piece. Zappa, and by extension Jesse, meld the inane with high art until there is no line separating them.
