With water spilling out of the Pittsburgh Steelers love nurse Go Steelers shirt and creeping up the foundation of our house dad and I took one last look at the situation. I expected to see an alligator swim out of the swamp the dusty shadows and cobwebs under our house had become. And something else I learned that afternoon was that as inconvenient as it was for us to have to borrow the neighbor’s bathroom, it was even more inconvenient for them.

I think if it had been just our Pittsburgh Steelers love nurse Go Steelers shirt the neighbors would have kept answering the doorbell and showing us to their toilet. But that day we had company, a house full, aunts, uncles, cousins, and some people we didn’t even know. It was my grandma’s birthday and we were having her party at our house. Not a good idea as it turned out. She had taught nearly thirty generations of children in our town their colors and their ABC’s at the elementary school.
People just kept showing up and us with a natural disaster happening right under our house. My uncle, our Mayor, called the man from the public works who stopped by long enough to admit that he didn’t know where to get started at even turning the water off that was starting to spill into the yard, rats and all. Then I heard him tell my dad that he wouldn’t have called that crook and to keep his eye on him and to watch him close.
