When they arrived back at the rescue ranch, they put Big Mama in the alley next to Miranda Lambert, in hopes that they would bond quickly and become roommates. But ten minutes later, while the three of us were inside The Cabin eating breakfast, our dogs started barking outside, so we went out to the front porch and saw Big Mama, running past our parked vehicles, heading up the tall hill, behind our trailer.
As we hollered for her to please come back, she quickly disappeared into the woods. So, Tony and Rick jumped into Kermit and took off looking for her while I quickly phoned all of our good neighbors to be on the lookout for Big Mama.
As soon as the men returned home, I was frantic about Big Mama running off, so I jumped into Trigger and drove all around Kinky's ranch and the ranch before you get to Echo Hill. When I returned home, Tony reminded me that we had to go to Kerrville, but I didn't want to go, because I wanted to stay home just in case Big Mama returned or one of our neighbors called about seeing the Great Pyrenees.
Two hours later, when the three of us returned home, from Kerrville and after me having said hundreds of silent prayers about Big Mama returning safely back to the rescue ranch—Big Mama was standing next to our front yard gate! So when Tony parked Buttermilk, we all opened the car doors and called for her to jump into the Expedition. The good news is she jumped right into the backseat with me. Big Mama was home at last! Talk about make my day great!
After Tony and I put Big Mama, in Tom Landry's Escape Proof pen and took Tom out and put him in the alley beside her we jumped into Kermit and went up to The Cabin, so I could check Carlton's messages and call our nice neighbors to let them know that Big Mama was back home.
There were only two messages to listen to and they were both back-to-back and from Sandy Wolfmueller, "Nancy, please call me." Second message, "Nancy, we found a stove top percolator for Rick! Call us as soon as you can. Bye"
I called Sandy back and then I went outside to tell Rick, "Sandy and Jon found their old, copper bottom coffee percolator, in the bookstore's basement and they want to give it to you. They said for you to return the one you bought at Gibson's..." Then we came back inside The Cabin, so we could check my e-mail, because they had just sent me a picture of their aka Rick's stove top coffee percolator.
