Contractors have descended upon David in my absence. Martin and his crew swept into the Blue Beast early this morning to shove us into Phase II of Reno Hell. Floors were ripped up, ceilings were torn down and walls were obliterated. At the same time John was outside, turning the Blue Beast into the Ruddy Beast.
While David was answering questions and giving opinions, Titan was digging his way under the fence to visit with the neighbors. And while David was reprimanding Titan the horses were busy escaping through the gate he accidentally left open. All this comes to me via email and curtailed phone conversations, and the whole scene seems very far removed from the delightful latte I enjoyed on a Toronto patio this afternoon.
