H is for Hush

The hush halted Henry. He’d heard hammering for hours. Hannah had hummed to hide the hideous harangue.

The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch
“How come his high holiness hid the holy hand grenade here?” Hannah asked.

“Howard the horrid hates him and threatened to hit his house with it.”

“Hasn’t Hamish halted Howard’s efforts?”

“Hamish’s health hasn’t held. He has hepatitis.”

“How horrible! Hamish is honest and honorable. I hope he heals.”

Heavy heels hit hard wood. Hannah and Henry hid. It was Howard. Henry heaved a horseshoe at his head. Howard toppled hard. Hannah held him while Henry howled.

His holiness came running, happy. “Hallelujah!”

I'm dribbling over your drabbles and would like to steal your theme for next year. Of COURSE, they will not be as good as yours, but let's not judge. :)

This reminded me of the hammering going on today in the upstairs flat -- now we have a small leak in the bathroom!

---Sorry about the "follow" signup and then the "unfollow" yesterday. I got spammed with some pretty slutty popups, and there I was .....your join screen caught in the middle. Still not sure what happened. I backed out and called the computer expert, my husband. All okay now but I had to been careful for awhile. Would love to have you back :-) You have a wonderful blog!
