One of the many gods that man has invented was angry with Richard (of RBB), probably for various reasons. He decided to send a flood. On the other hand, maybe it was just a bit of a storm and Richard (of RBB) was unlucky enough to have water coming down the hill at the back of his property that was trapped against a concrete foundation that wasn’t sealed properly.
Water appeared in the two bottom rooms of his house that he had converted from a couple of garages many years ago. Lots of water. Richard (of RBB) frantically moved floor coverings and furniture. He tried to trap the water with towels. This god was angry!
I guess you don’t get to run the original bass bagging site if you can’t rise to challenges – also Richard (of RBB) was used to dealing with deity because he knew Angry Jesus.
“I will build a trench.” He proclaimed. “I will build a trench that will take the water away from the house.”
Darkness was rolling in and it was raining heavily, but Richard (of RBB) built a trench. A mighty trench. He was then able to dry the sodden rooms and have a Chardonnay.
It continued to rain, but all was well in Nuova Lazio.
That little bridge is a concrete
thing I had to go under.
