Several weeks ago I wrote about the cacophony emanating from the masonry work being carried out on the svhool beside my building. Saws, hammers, drills, lifts and shouts have made for ma loud summer. Weekdays from 7:00 AM to about 3:00 PM, with a few breaks thrown in, the noise is constant. But, masonry is loud work. Nothing to be done about it.
But yesterday morning I awoke and – lo and behold – I could not hear the masons hacking through concrete, nor could I hear drills being applied to bricks. Were they done? Not bloody likely. I couldn’t hear the masonry noise because it was being drowned out by the giant gadget that resurfaces the road. My road!
I think I preferred the masonry work.
