Why do people call me or noisily dig when they know I don't get up until after 11? Are they *jealous* because I'm retired and they have to work? A phone call at 8:45 and the guys noisily discussing the job to be done and then start digging about 9. Good thing it was sunny and 50º or I'd have been really grumpy from lack of sleep! I filled the tub and sinks in case the water was 2 b cut off.
