Lots of Smoke

Thanks for all the good vibes and corssed paws! We're still waiting to hear back on the house. Mom said they lowered the price on it today so hopefully they'll hear back from them soon. Since it's a foreclosure, everything is done on the computer and there's lots of waiting and waiting and waiting.

Today before lunch, Mom was working really hard and started to smell smoke. She had her window open by her desk which is right above the highway so she just thought it was the stinky traffic. Her office manager called her and asked her what was burning and Mom said, "I don't know, but I've been smelling it for awhile." Mom is in the building next door to the main building and her building was blocking the view of everybody in the main building so they were calling Mom for answers. I don't think they'll be doing that again! Her office manager told her to look out her patio door and this is what Mom saw:

Mom said, "OH! I don't know! It's either the cellphone place, the print shop again (it caught on fire this time last year), the bank or that other building." The lesson Mom learned was, if you smell smoke, look for it! It turned out to be a building that used to be an old lumber yard. Mom can't remember if that's the building that has a computer repair place in it or if it's further back. This picture was actually taken right after the firemen got there, but before the police and sheriff's department got there to direct traffic. The smoke was a lot darker black than it looks in this picture and just a few minutes after it was taken, there was a sherriff SUV parked in the middle of the highway in that intersection there on the other side of Domino's. Mom had a hard time getting home from lunch because they redirected traffic off the highway and onto Main Street which is how Mom gets home and there was noway she was going to get on the highway because it was so backed up. She made it home though.
Nothing else exciting is going on here, just waiting to hear about the house. Thanks again for the corssed paws and good vibes. Keep them coming PLEASE!!!!! I heard Mom and Dad talking again last night and if we get this house, Grandma is going to come live with us for awhile! How cool will that be? If I get in trouble, Grandma is right there to tell Mom and Dad to be nice to me and give me lots of treats and she can never say no to me when I ask her to play fetch like Mom and Dad do!

We have a big coke plant (the coal kind, not the soda kind) we can see from our house and it smokes like that all the time. Boy is it stinky!

Sending good vibes on the house!
