Knock, knock to my right
 Knock, knock in front of me
 Knock, knock to my left
 Knock, knock on my porch
 Who is there you ask...well since Thursday, September 8, there have been men all over my house playing knock, knock (taking the old wood siding off my house and I haven't had a decent nap in days.   

They are replacing the old siding with hardiplank siding (it comes with a yellow primer paint on it).  Hardiplank siding is a composite of cement and will last for at least 87 million years.

They finished playing knock, knock with us on Saturday afternoon.  As soon as they left, Mom found me taking a very long nap.  I have to rest up before Monday 'cause another bunch of men are coming to power wash our house and deck then
paint everything. 

Woe be unto me!! Mom assures me they will be finished by Wednesday or Thursday of next week.
She said she'd post pictures of the finished product.


  1. Wow! That is a whole lot of knocking! We hope that you get lots of long and quiet naps before those power washers come!

    87 million years!! Must be super siding!!

  2. Wow, you house is looking very pretty. Just a few more days and you will be able to nap undisturbed :)xx

  3. Oh Madi, you poor thing, your ears must be very tired. Try to get a good night's sleep while you can.

    We look forward to seeing your house when all the work is finished.

    Purrs and Hugs,

  10. Cab't wait to see the finished project, I bet it will be Beautiful!!!
    Madi, try to catch some zzzz in between knock knocks :) no joke really try ;)

  11. Souns pretty cool and I understand about al that noise stuff. We have had garge guys doing all the building and siding etc. Ours should end soon too.


  12. Oh, the distress, Miss Madi. But, your home will be even more beautiful, when they are done.

  13. Oh yes! I can imagine this in interrupting your nap time! Hang in there, Maddie!

  14. Oh Madi...mee feels so bad for you. How could dey disturb you nap?

  15. Looks like a lot of work going on. We worked on our house this past weekend too.

  16. Madi,

    I know how you feel, when our house was gettin' worked on I was exhausted cuz I spent da whole day snoopervisin' instead of takin' naps! :)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  17. Those rude knockers! You need some earplugs.

  18. We would be totally nuts if someone was knock knocking on our house. We would be under the bed or anything we can get under. Glad you got a good nap in for now Madi and get ready for the next bunch of workers. Take care.

  19. Whoa Madi
    We know that is no fun. WE remember when we had our roof redone. There were all kinds of hoomans making all kinds of racket all over the house and we didn't like it either. But it only took a few days and you have had someone making rackets for a few weeks.
    We bet your Mom and Dad will love it after it all done, but we know you will just love it when it's done.

  20. how annoying that must have been!

  21. SHucks, my first comment didn't time now...
    Gotta run, inside joke, huh Mom????

  22. We hope you can get lots of rest when all the knock knock is done. We look forward to seeing it when it is finished.

  23. Hi sweet Madi! Hi dear Mom!!!
    Thank you for your kindness in our hardest time.

  24. Madi, we don't like when the worker guys are making lots of noise either. We hope they are finished sooner than later!

  25. Hi Madi
    We HATE also loud noise
    we are very happy for you (and Mom & Dad)
    When that big job is finished :P
    cuddle from Kareltje =^.^= and
    little Betsie >^.^<

    (when your house is painted it will look like a new one :-)
    In our country are only houses from stone!!

  26. Oh, Madi, hope you are getting some rest. All that racket is disconcerting! But hardiplank is the best. Your mom is smart to use it! And I bet it will look great when all done!

  27. What horrors those humans put us through!! We hope you get some power naps in!
