I’d been reading a book in my living room. The sun shone in through the window and I dozed off with its warmth on the back of my neck.
I woke to the sound of someone dragging a big metal appliance across the concrete outside the downstairs family room. Emma barked like crazy to tell me that someone was burgling the house.
I ran out onto the deck to see what was going on. I saw nothing, but I heard the noise again. Strange!
The metallic rattling came again and I looked up towards the sound.
A flicker was sitting on the top of the new flue to the gas fireplace.
Just listen to his drumming!
