A couple of nights ago, I watching tv in the family room when I noticed a rather annoying generator like sound. You know, the rhythmic kind of tapping sound. For some reason, I was really fixated on it to a point where it was annoying!
I went outside and it got louder. I walked around the backyard trying to find the source. I got close to my neighbor’s garage which borders the backyard…it got quieter. I walked towards my next door neighbor’s property where there is a shed; still quieter. I walked towards the other side where that neighbor has a window air conditioner; nope, quieter.
I started towards my garage and it started getting louder! Ahhh….I am getting there but what is in the garage other than Steph’s car??? And surely, my yard equipment does not even come close to sounding like what I was hearing. Still no source! FRUSTRATING!
I went back in the house, upstairs….and I kind of like said to Steph…”what is that $#$#@%@$#@% generator like sounds I am hearing in the backyard??????” Steph is like “whoa Nelly…calm down!”
She went into Mike’s room, looked out the window that borders the backyard, turned around and in a rather educational lecture way, proclaimed to explain to me what I was hearing are summer crickets and they are louder in the summer especially when it’s hot.
D’uh!!!! Ah….and the wonders of my CI and what I have waited 50-something years to hear……*shaking head*
