sitting at the dinner table with family tonight when lightening struck the house next door. we called 911, but the house was ablaze within minutes. I helped pull hoses and held ladders and tried to stay out of the way, but to no avail. Poor neighbor lost everything while I can now add junior-grade-volunteer-fire-fighter to my more sordid resume. Tonight I will thank the Good Lord for 15-yards to the right of random. It's never boring here in weathersby-world.
