When Your Door Falls Off During the Rainy Season!!

What do you do when you open the back door and the whole heavy glass door falls in as you pull on the knob? First you call Pasiano who works for an hour and can’t get it reinstalled. So he props it against the outside storage cupboard–possibly the worst place to put it if you in fact require access to anything stored in the closet , but at least it is sort of protected from the inevitable rain. Then you call every aluminum place in three towns and either they don’t answer or they are crazy busy. Can anyone come today? No. Tomorrow? Probably not. Will they call you when they can come? Yes.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      One thing, at this elevation, once the rain stops, things dry out quickly. Don’t know how sodden the towels and bathroom rungs were that I stuffed up to the door and over the floor by the next morning as I was up so late that I slept in the next morning and it was Yolanda’s day to clean, so she had already removed and washed and dried all of them by the time I woke up. Another example of good fortune in disaster.Not what happens, but how it happens.

      What else to do with it? Actually, every time I describe anything amounting to chaos or failure or disaster to Forgottenman, he answers, “Blog?” and asks if I’ve taken photos. So I’ve gotten into the habit.

    I like that Ollie, my cats disappear when strangers enter the house. In fact most of my friends do not know I have a cat, Only a dog who will not leave them alone.

    There’s always some unplanned project in the black-hole-of-property ownership. At least the glass didn’t break!
