Let The Sparks Fly

Most of us where up and stirring at 6:30 this morning. I said most. Does using the little girls room count? It was close to 7:00 give or take a few, and our lights flickered and flickered, not a good sign. We were now running all around the house turning of switches unplugging items, but the lights where still flickering?????? So we turned off the main switch to the house. Then Naomi says, It sounds like something is burning up outside. So we all go outside. The electric wire was sparking. It would spark in one area then continue down the line. I thought something is going to catch on fire as sparks were falling to the ground. I said who do we call? What do we do? Not much. We wait for one of the neighbor's to do something. After a few minutes, they started to peak their heads out. There really was nothing we could do, so I ushered everyone back inside to begin our day with no electricity. We thought we would be without electricity for awhile, but after the sparks stopped we flipped our electricity switch back on and we had lights. It was the weirdest thing!

Mack, Prince, William, (Tall) Joseph and Matthew went to Cape Coast on Saturday. Peter's dad was becoming King of a village in Cape Coast. It is a week long ceremony and our guys could only go on Saturday. Who knew we where friends with the Kings son? Here is a bit of history of Peter's family. Pretty neat. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._E._Ferguson Also Peter's Dad, King George Ferguson also trains paraplegics here in Ghana for the Olympics.
