Jules and Aesop were hanging out on the back patio this morning when we heard barking (mainly Jules). This was followed moments later by a woman's voice. We assumed, as we headed out to call the dogs in, that it was the neighbor, as she likes her wine a lot and will sometimes talk at Aesop over the fence. Instead, we found a woman from the power company on the patio. Aesop, always game for a new human friend, was dancing around her feet My husband kindly asked WTF and she said she was turning the power off for nonpayment. As our bills are paid, thankyoumuch, he kindly repeated his question. Only then did she recheck her paperwork and realize she was not even on the right street She said 'it happens all the time' If we had not happened to be home, we would have come home after 6 to a house with no power for 8 hours, and no air. In Arizona. They don't come out after hours so we'd have been very uncomfortable until they were able to come out. Highly, highly annoying. On the upside, I'm glad she went into the yard with the dog, although giant, who likes people. I'm not sure Goose would be so forgiving of a stranger.
