Monsters and Witches and Zombies... Oh My!

It seems my three-year old grandson Miles had a problem. Well, several problems if you must know. Despite his parents' best efforts to provide their little boy with a safe, comforting environment, their house had become infested with a huge population of monsters and witches and zombies.

How do I know this? Well my grandson informed me during our recent Thanskgiving visit. No sooner had I attempted to wrangle him down for a welcome hug did he explain, in no uncertain terms, about the "creatures" who had made his house their home.

Clearly something had to be done.

Fortunately, I had brought with me an ample supply of special, super duper, invisible monster spray and witch spray and zombie spray.

spray, with his Aunt Mel,
Mom Jessica, and
Papa Bob.
I handed them all to Miles, and he immediately set to work. He sprayed his mother (my older daughter Jessica), his father Brian, his Papa Bob (my hubby) his Aunt Mel (my younger daughter Melissa) and his dog Rocky with the invisible potion, making sure that we were all safe from those cranky cretins.

However, those monsters and witches and zombies were formidable opponents. It seemed that no sooner did Miles provide us with our much-needed protection, that the potion became ineffective, forcing him to spray us again, and again, and again.

But it didn't end there. Miles and I crept through the house, ready to pounce on the monsters and witches and zombies that lurked in his bedroom, his parents' bedroom, and the guest bedroom.

Try as I might to keep him hiding upstairs (out of the hair of his mother, who slaved away over Thanksgiving fixins in the kitchen) he insisted on returning to the lower level, where we needed to
find a new power source to vanquish the monsters and witches and zombies.

a new way to vanquish the monsters
and witches and zombies.
Unfortunately, that power source could only be accessed by crawling under the dining room table. An easy feat for a nimble three-year old, not so much for my middle-aged, tired body. Yet there I sat, under the dining room table, watching my grandson feverishly input numbers into the imaginary keypad of an imaginary vault, trying to guess the secret code to our new power supply. I mimicked his actions, inputting my own secret code while ignoring the aching protests of my aging bones.

Bob and Melissa, who sat comfortably on the living room sofa, stole a glance in my direction and stifled a laugh.

To their credit, I'm sure I looked quite ridiculous.

Yet, my efforts had kept the monsters and witches and zombies at bay.

Indeed, my efforts had saved the day, and we were all able to eat our Thanksgiving dinner in peace.

  1. We have been ensuring and expanding the existence of rooftop tiles utilizing airless shower gear for 25 or more years. Our demonstrated, attempted and tried, German made, clear or shading pigmented defensive coatings, will leave your rooftop resembling a fresh out of the box new one for a negligible portion of the expense. I compare the utilization of these remarkable coatings as like securing the bodywork of your vehicle. We wash our vehicles consistently ourselves or we take them to a carwash. Sooner or later, we'll notice that the paintwork is beginning to look dull and will at that point, eventually, either apply the clean and buff it ourselves or once more, pay for another person to do it. Why clean it?

    Well it will positively look better, water will globule and run off rapidly and bird-droppings or tree sap will presently don't start to "destroy" your paintwork.

    We do this to something that debases each time we fire it up (by and large). Your home (your manor) after some time, simply does the inverse! I'm truly glad that you're thinking about rooftop cleaning and would invite the chance to give a free citation to you. On the off chance that you like and simultaneously we can give a citation to securing your now extremely clean rooftop (however not ensured) from the components.

    I'm not going to talk "over your head" about the specialized determinations and cycles of these shocking defensive coatings, yet know this:Once we have cleaned and eliminated the greenery, lichen, and green growth from your rooftop tiles and before the utilization of either a reasonable or shaded defensive covering, our master project worker will place another tip into his splash firearm. We just utilize the market-pioneer for our tips. Graco tips are made out of the greatest grade of tungsten carbide, the most grating safe material utilized in the assembling of airless shower tips.

    All shower tips will wear with ordinary use. All coatings contain solids that are grating some more than others. Utilizing a well used tip will bring about an inconsistent completion, since when a tip wears, the size of the tip opening increments and the fan width diminishes. This powers more passes to cover the surface prompting a break in the ideal conveyance design. Consolidating the right Graco splash tip with our weapon assumes a major part in assisting us with making the expert completion your rooftop covering position requests. Not exclusively does the tip decide how much liquid will leave the firearm when our project worker pulls the trigger, the splash tip likewise decides how wide a shower fan the weapon will make. Our worker for hire is additionally watching the tip for any indications of obstructing We just utilize Graco's reversible tips. With a reversible tip, he can undoubtedly clear tip stops up by essentially turning the tip 180 degrees to the perfect position and afterward setting off the sprayer.
