Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas, Well, it is more like two days, but We are sure you know what We mean. After two days of constant rain the power went off on Saturday night, just after daddy got back from removing the pump from the bore, which supplies some of water to us, water for another four houses and stock troughs. There was concern the pump house would flood, thus damaging the pump. We all coped very well. Daddy cooked on the barbeque and of course, mummy had lots of clean drinking water stored.
Daddy was able to practise his breaking and entering skills and got into the neighbour’s garage (with their permission, of course) and he came home with this noisy, smelly machine. Family called it a generator and after the use of some interesting language, it started working. It meant that they could be connected to this thing called the “internet”.
The slips meant that We could be isolated for up to 10 days. Sister was getting concerned because she desperately wanted to
go to her school ball on Friday, get back to her studies at school. So another noisy machine came to visit us. Family said it was a helicopter and it was here to take sister to school. Then daddy came home with an extra special treat. Can you guess what it was, loyal readers.
Me and Nellie got a bone each as a tasty treat. Unfortunately, most of the yummy meat went into the magic white box called a freezer and not to the two most deserving maremmas in all the land.
