Rainy Day Woman #12 &35

This was a particularly good Saturday. Not that anything special happened it was just a good day. We had a relaxing morning then went to run some errands. We had to return a video and since it was at Macdonald's we decided to have a little bite to eat. Then we were off to home depot ( the new homeowners favorite place to shop). We grabbed the air filters and light bulbs we had gone in after and then went to the garden center to dream about what we want our yard to look like. Next it was home to do a little yard work. So we go in to change and get some water to drink and in that ten minutes a storm has blown in. So Isaac gets out there and starts speed mowing(just wait this will become a new sport one day) and he finishes the back just as the rain starts. So then the rest of the afternoon was very relaxing we spent some time sitting on the couch with the dogs watching the rain come down which was very peaceful. So even though nothing extraordinary happened it was a very good Saturday spent with our little family.

I am not sure that everyone knows that I, isaac, work in an old house in the country. So we do carry out our entire business from this house on a hill on a 10 acre property in Franklin, TN. (I actually posted pics from a field across the street from us in a posting below).

You need to know that information for that I am about to tell you what has been going on at work. Well maybe not...

Our conference room is what would be the huge living room of the house and it has a chimney and a fire place on one end and a co-worker had been hearing noise come from there for over a week. So he got mad and went over and kicked the fireplace and found out that the noise was now being made in response to his kicking. ha! It kind of sounds like a rattle...first assumption...rattlesnake!
By this time there's 4 of us guys in the conference room with a stick, a flashlight, a shovel, and the doors closed to the rest of the office. Yea...this is a work place. Sounds more like a crazy reality show now that I am typing it out. ha! So we are going to open the chimney doors that have not been opened in who knows how long...it's a dark and scary place. Trust me.

So we get it open and we keep hearing the rattling but nothing is there. Well there are actually a few baby bird skeletons and lots of bird droppings that immediately stink up the entire conference room. It was gross.
So this automatically is gauranteed that they are not rattlesnakes...seriously how could a snake get into the fire place anyway? well we were convinced it was a rattle snake up to this point.

Well we can't see anything from the bottom of the fire place...time to go on the roof! This is sounding more like a low-budget B-rated movie starring a twenty something Haley Joel Osment. So two of the guys go up and try to peer into the open chimney from the roof of the house apparently the noise is really loud and the guys are scared to even look down into the chimney. We end up feeding them a flood light to look down into the darkness. One of the guys ended up wide-eyed and saying..."I saw legs!" By this time HR figured we were wasting time and ordered everyone back inside.

So then today, all that stuff happened yesterday, one of the guys shows up with his BB gun to shoot into the chimney. I don't know what good that would do? No matter what kind of creature it was. Well they finally get up there and then discovered that is was a birds nest and that there were baby birds in the nest making all the noise in the first place.
Great...now we all look like jerks...shooting at baby birds. I guess that's what we get for trying to be curious.

that's work for ya...
...speaking of work....
