The bugs are a-buzzing, and that means it is the season to repair the screen door.For me it is a job that lasts for months. No matter how many times I plug up the holes, new openings appear within days and the bugs are back.Fixing a screen door is like trying to fix campaign-finance laws, or the federal deficit. You could make a career out of it.I have worked both sides of the screen door.As an adult, I am now a defender of the door. I am the one who scolds anyone who threatens it. Who instinctively yells "Watch the door," when baseball bats or lacrosse sticks or broom handles venture near it. Maybe that is why one of our kids used to call it the "scream" door.

LAST WEEKEND I was face down on the floor, a position guys often find themselves in on warm spring weekends. Many forces can take a man down over a weekend. One is fall-on-your-face exhaustion. Another is a swarm of young children descending on a prone papa. A third is an irresistible urge to take an afternoon nap, especially after beer at lunch. At various times in my life, I have been felled by these forces. But last weekend none of these suspects was the culprit. Instead, a sliding glass door had me on my stomach playing peekaboo with its adjustment screw.

A judge said yesterday that an Edmondson Heights woman whose Formstone door frame violates the local community association's covenant would be spared -- at least temporarily -- any consequences.Circuit Judge John Grason Turnbull II vacated another judge's contempt-of-court order against Ann Lopez, 70, adding that he hoped attorneys for her and the association, both working pro bono, could come up with a compromise in 60 days."I'm not trying to set a precedent," said Judge Turnbull. "This isn't the case of the century."

THE WIND is a great leveler. The muscular gusts that rocketed though Maryland late this week swept away feelings of seasonal smugness and sent me scurrying to weatherstrip the home front. During November it feels, as Verlyn Klinkenborg says in his new book of essays, The Rural Life, as if "winter could come the next minute or the next month." I had been counting on cold weather to mosey into town in a month or two. But Thursday when the howling wind woke me up at 4 o'clock in the morning it sounded like the wolf was at the door.

CHRISTMAS ARRIVED several weeks early for Lillie and Lloyd Henson, thanks to a diverse group of "angels" who came together to turn a wish into reality. The Hensons built their modest brick home on Catherine Avenue more than 30 years ago. The working couple raised four children there. Taking care of home maintenance was Lloyd's job, with some assistance from the kids and Lillie. Even after retiring several years ago, Lloyd, 72, continued the upkeep until being diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1998 that confined him to a wheelchair.

Of all the doors in a house, the one hanging in a teen-ager's bedroom is probably the most important to keep in good working order. Household harmony depends on it.When that door is closed, the teen-ager can wall himself off from the rest of the household, a separation that works well for parties on both sides of the divide. When that door is closed, the jarring sounds of the teen-ager's favorite tunes are largely confined to one room.When that door is closed, the teen-ager can slumber until noon, undisturbed by the movements of other members of household, those of us who view weekend mornings as an opportunity to do some chores.

In Carroll County's Gamber, where nature threw its temper tantrum and then blithely skipped town, there's a tiny miracle amid all the ravaged houses, the doorways and roofs tossed indiscriminately about, the mattresses and chairs and children's toys lying haphazardly in yards, the basketball backboard sliced in two, and the line of trees snapped at right angles from the force of the tornado."

THE SKY MAY not be falling, but our ceilings are shaking.At home the other day, I looked up at what used to be a relatively smooth ceiling and saw that a chunk of plaster was missing. Immediately I had a suspect, our jumping, thumping teen-ager.He quickly confessed. He explained he had been out in the hallway and had slapped his hand against the ceiling when, for no reason at all, this chunk of plaster came loose and fell to the floor. He had meant to tell me about the incident, he said, but it had slipped his mind.
