The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Dude, I don't know about Dave, but I was EXHAUSTED after this weekend.
that's what I figured.
you know you're wiped out when you sleep through sirens.
Ah, the memories.
Way back when I was in high school, my mother's house had two garage apartments in back in a two-story building that was separate from the house. My older brother and I occupied the downstairs apartment and renters occupied the upstairs.
In February of 1970, about 1:30 in the morning, her house burned. The back end, about forty feet from the apartment, was crispied nicely and the interior was thoroughly damaged, but it still stood. The repairs cost more than it was worth, but she had good insurance.
So, there were fire trucks, police, sirens, and Chinese fire drills all around. The downstairs apartment was headquarters for it all, and it was as noisy as you might expect.
The renters upstairs slept through it all.
