This Afternoon Got Weird!

This morning, after doing my five miles, Kinky called. "Morning Nance," Kinky said. "Can you come over? I need to talk to you about a few things."

"I can't, Kinky. I wish I could, but I've got too much paperwork to do." So we talked on the phone for over thirty minutes, instead! Laugh out loud—I love that man!

When I had finished my paperwork, I went outside, to put our new 'Proof of Insurance' cards into the vehicles. Then I decided to visit with our dogs some. I was on cloud nine, while I visited with our great dogs. When I passed Mr. Ziffle's pen, who Ashley Judd and Lucy are now occupying, I thought about his super adoption, and was so happy for him! Then the dogs cranked up barking—a green compact car was driving in. "Aaron," I half-hollered. "Who is that driving in?"

"I don't know, Nancy." The vehicle slowed, and I went to see who was here.

"Hi, I'm Nancy. Can I help you?" I said, to a friendly, smiling woman, who was about my age.

"Yes. I'm Pat H., and I want to adopt your little black dog. I'm from San Antone. I came out yesterday to look around. After I left, I couldn't quit thinking about that little dog. I have two cats, and one dog. Can I adopt her?"

"Oh my gosh, Pat—you sure can!" I was now on cloud ten! "Are you talking about little Hannah Montana? That little dog over there, in the puppy pen?" Then I pointed to her.

"Yes, the little black one."

"Her name is Hannah Montana, and she is one sweet little dog, but I have to tell you that she was returned to us, because she ate a sofa and was pretty destructive."

The woman laughed! "I don't care. Honey, I once had a dog that ate the corner off of my TV set! I'm a retired teacher, and she will be with me all day long. My other dog is a small mix named Anna, and I am sure they will bond and be buddies fast." Pat and I visited for several more minutes, then I excused myself, to go write up Hannah's adoption papers!

"Tony, Hannah is being adopted! This woman said that she came out here yesterday, and fell in love with her." I said.

"Great!" Tone said. "I forgot to tell you about her coming out. I'll go get Hannah for her." T. then left the trailer.

After Pat filled out Hannah's adoption form, Tony brought Hannah to Pat, and it was love at first sight! We visited a little while longer, then Pat needed to leave. After backing up her car, to turn around, her last words to us were, "Hannah just licked my face. I love her! Thank you so much—bye!"

Tone and I waved, and said goodbye to her, as Hannah was happily riding 'shot gun' in the front seat, with her tail wagging!

This afternoon got weird. T. and I went to Kerrville, to run several errands. Walmart was fine. The post office was fine, but when we parked in front of Blockbusters, to go to the health store, two doors down, to purchase some vitamins and supplements—I couldn't believe what I saw!

As I got out of Buttermilk, I looked over to the closely parked car next to us—a man and a woman, were in the car making out—in broad daylight! Their car seats were lowered down, and they were going after it! I couldn't believe it! So, I quickly closed the door, and race-walked to join Tony. When I told him about them, he laughed about it.

Our last stop was at Hoegemeyer's Animal Clinic, to pick up some pills for Thunder, and a bag of special Science Diet dog food for Alfie, who has skin allergies. While we were waiting in the lobby, with several other people, a man, about thirty-five, walked inside with a big, handsome, friendly, male yellow Labrador! "You're dog looks just like Marley," a man said, to the stranger.

"Yes, I know," The Lab's owner replied. "But my dog is not nearly as destructive as Marly was." Everyone in the lobby laughed, including Tone and me!

Y'all have a great evening! I've had a great day! I am so happy for Ziff and Hannah! They have found their forever homes—at last!
