Popular Post Dempsy's Mom Posted January 2, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted January 2, 2017 (edited) Last night we had a small blizzard. Year end book work is here and our computer is out by the big window facing the highway. From time to time I would watch the cars go by and the snow flurrying around them. Most cars were moving right along. Then a car drove by at a snails pace and I said "You people are gonna get wacked in the hindend if you don't pick it up. " Just then a pickup came up behind them and luckily slowed to a crawl behind them. Soon they were out-of-sight and I thought to myself, "To bad you people don't just give it up. You could always stop here," I thought. Well ... it wasn't but a minute later this man was lurking outside my window. Instinctively I knew who it was. I opened the door and to his surprise I said, "Come on in!" He informed me his wife was in the car and they had a small dog. For a second I thought maybe they were in the ditch, but luckily they were in the driveway. So in they came and their dog was medium sized and wonderful. She was long haired black springer and maybe a lab mix. Absolutely a non-issue, well behaved dog. Her name was Mittens because she was a rescue they adopted from Michigan, the "Mitten State." Elsie had some rules she had to set down and once set and understood Elslie was fine. Dempsy was just delighted to have Mittens join us for the evening. They kept Mittens on a leash, but Elsie and Dempsy had to show off and do zoomies. Good grief. We had coffee and they told us they were traveling back from Wisconsin to Pierre, SD. A young couple - married 3 years - Jacob and Leah. They were driving a 2 wheel car and the snow was flying and they couldn't see the road. The wind kept up and increased while we visited. We offered them a room, but they checked the weather and it seemed like it was going to clear ... by mid-night. So I set them up in the TV room. Put the laptop in there for ease in checking the weather and blankets. Informed them that there was coffee yet and that Mittens was welcome on the couches. Gave Mittens a snack. If the weather didn't clear they were free to just hang out and we would see them in the morning. I listened to the wind blow as I went to bed and then during the night it was quiet. They left during the night. Elsie & Demps were looking for Mittens when we came down this morning. Dumb me - I wish I would of taken a picture, but I missed the opportunity. Bummer. That was a great New Years Day! I am telling ya the year end was wonderful and the New Year started with love, compassion, understanding, trust, friendship... all the good things. I hope it keeps up all year long. Edited January 2, 2017 by Dempsy's Mom 13 Quote Elsie, Max, Meeko & Lori Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
