Broken Windows

"Bless me Father for I have sinned. It's been a long time since my last confession..."
Ok, let's get something straight. In my other life, I threw rocks and tried to end with a thud the lives of fat, gray squirrels, big black crows, scampering chipmunks, and loads of nasty pigeons. Thank goodness I had a bad aim, because I missed them all, and I threw A LOT of ammo. After revealing all that, this next line might throw you for a loop. Would you believe me, if I told you, that I never hurled a stone in anger or in fun at a glass window? It's true. Never threw, broke and ran. Never! File this fact under one of those mysteries of life that I've talked about before. And I had many a chance. A shattering revelation, I know.
"For all your valiant attempts to end the lives of those varmints and such... two Our Fathers and one Hail Mary, son."

  2. I believe you, but I bet if you had clobbered some poor squirrel and it fell dead at your feet you would have been seized by remorse. I know that from experience.

  5. Yeah, like a couple Our Fathers will get you off the hook! Sheesh! My confession would include the fact I have a better aim and sent a number of such critters to their final nesting place. But I'd never say that in public!

  10. Homeowners have many different reasons for window replacement. Some are simply looking to improve their view from both inside and out of their house. A window replacement job can enhance the interior and exterior beauty of any house by freshening up its look and updating its style. Window replacement can significantly enhance the look of a house and give it added curb appeal. On the inside of your home, window replacement can let more natural light, can add to the décor of any room, and improve the view of the outside. It's amazing how much an upgrade can enhance the view of your own yard or neighborhood.
