Wait For It
I was also warmed by a telephone call from old friends, Joe and Carol, who were my neighbors down the hill when we first moved here. After they sold their place in Fair Play, they moved to Arizona and I haven't heard from them in ages. Joe was and is a character. He used to run cattle on his property and they continually either jumped the fence (who knew?!) or broke through to browse in my front yard. It was quite an experience to come out of the shower and find thirty or so cows staring at me through the window. Once, Carol called to say they had an orphaned calf and would I like to see it. Well, of course! It was a surprise to find that they were keeping the baby warm in the kitchen of their double-wide trailer. I hardly knew how to respond. I don't think I ever heard either of them say a mean word about anyone. Good people. They're back in California for a time to receive medical care, and I look forward to a visit in the near future. I'm so glad they called.
The weathermen/women are still predicting that the sun will come out by Thanksgiving. I guess we'll wait and see.
It was a good day.
