Some one starts hammering on my door.
It was the night before Xmas----no correction the night before the new year of '04. There I was just about to fall asleep & four knocks on my door, man I am half asleep, but my ears are tuned for some other arse to be knocking on the ruddy door & sure enough some other ------ well not knocks but sounds.
I'm going for my 2" snubbie when I note more pops & knocks, look at the clock & realize it was midnight. Okay so the incipid town council must have agreed on stupid fireworks (this town has gone f/works crazy for they pop fireworks for almost unknowen reasons---must be to the benifit of some town council person's realitive) which would be the source of so called knocks on the door & other pops & such. Who in the 'ell is going to be out at 20 below, freezing their arse & asking for a cold/flu? Not me anyway.
Happy new yr or merry Xmas or what ever is said on these occasions----took me an hr plus to get to sleep.
