Power washing the house

“The house looks really good.”

Scott turned off the power washing machine and walked over to the lawn chair, where I was sitting.

“I don’t want you to be mad, but I ripped a screen.”

“I won't be mad. Where did it tear?”

He pointed to the second story window to an “s” gash in the screen’s bottom.

“What happened?”

“I used the right nozzle on the hose and was on the ladder trying to be so careful washing the house. I was concentrating on the area under the window when something flew directly in my face. I swatted it, the hose jumped, and it tore the screen.”

“I’m just glad you didn’t fall off the ladder.
Did a bird try to attack you?”

“No, it was a butterfly.”

For all you do-it-yourselfers, be careful and watch out for attacking Lepidopterians.
Have a great day. Any one know a person that will fix a screen?
