Our patio roof has been leaking and I have been putting a bucket under the leak (Ted said the next time it leaked ring him so that he could see where the water is coming from)
Last night we had torrential rain and when I got up the roof was leaking in three other places and the bucket was almost full. The patio was built for us some ten years ago by some cowboy builders and the roof has leaked ever since despite Ted's valiant efforts to stop it (he was unavailable to do odd jobs in those days being in real estate)

In the kitchen there was a smashed egg in the middle of the floor. Don't ask me how B and C got it out of the packet on the bench and managed to bat it onto the middle of the floor.
I found some more buckets to catch the extra drops from the patio roof and then rang Ted - suddenly, crash - Bonnie cleverly upended the full bucket of water over the floor!! Such a smart kitty - I needn't have bothered trying to catch the drips.
I opened the front door and got a heap of water on my head. It had been leaking near the door and water had collected on top of the door!

I hadn't noticed Fluffy SP, who had slipped outside into the rain. You guessed it, she was saturated and happy, dying to get inside and walk around on the sofa.
As I silently screamed I heard on the news that an earthquake measuring
7.1 had struck in Te Anau in the South Island. Fortunately it wasn'tin a highly populated area so no one was hurt but there is some damage with things falling off shelves etc.
Surely nothing else can happen. John is sleeping the sleep of the just and I haven't even had breakfast yet, just needed a rant. I see Ted is pulling up in front of the house and the rain keeps coming down.

PS FluffySP frustrated at not being allowed outside again after being dried off has refused to use the litter box and done it on the floor instead to spite me, screamm.

God may have created man before woman but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.

Hi, Bev!
It's 97F (36C) here today, and Pea doesn't understand why I won't leave the door open between the kitchen and the enclosed porch - even after I took him out there briefly to show him how uncomfortable it is. They just want to have their way, don't they?

Hi Bev,
Purrs that Ted has managed to find the source of the leak, not an easy job as the leak (or is that several leaks) can travel quite a distance before dropping down onto the floor/table/sofa!!
Perhaps B & C have heard that egg yoke improves hair condition so they were trying it out!!
Bonnie was just trying to be helpful to save you from having to carry out the bucket of water.
We have had enough rain to float Noah's ark!!
Good day to be sitting here playing on the computer - have just designed my wedding invitations.
Keep dry!
