Do you hear the drums, Fernando?

I don't think that I mentioned this earlier, but my rectory is really run down. This month, the roof is being repaired as it has been leaking. It has been leaking so badly that one of the walls in the living room lost its plaster due to water seeping through the wall. Last week, the roofers ripped the shingles off; this week, the nailing of new shingles has begun.

This is why I am so glad that for at least a couple of days I will be away from the rectory doing some business in the city. The drumming of booted feet and the hammering of nails I won't have to endure. So the answer to the question above is, thankfully, not yet.
