Everyone knows it takes a village to accomplish big things! Becky stayed here when we went to Colorado – she took care of Hazel and Telly, all the cats and litter boxes, the parakeet, all the barn chores with goats, geese and chickens and above all, she vacuumed!!! We could not have taken Blanche to Colorado without her help! Thank you, Becky, from the bottom of my heart!
Another detail I forgot were our challenges on the road. On our way out on Thursday the wind was gusting to 50 mph from the northwest. The wind along with all the trucks made it a strenuous drive.
Strenuous as well as boring.
On Friday night when we were leaving, we weren’t probably 25 miles down the road when a large buck deer appeared on the right shoulder of the road. He just stood there with his huge rack of antlers and we could only breathe a sigh of relief and a prayer of thanks that he didn’t step onto the road.
As we were driving through the Omaha area, the traffic got pretty heavy – it was about 5 pm. A car ahead of us stepped on the brakes and Rick got us stopped only inches from that car’s bumper! Once again we offered a prayer of thanks.
North of Ames there was lots of truck traffic going north and suddenly a semi pulling a livestock trailer passed us on the left going at least 90 mph! It was downright frightening!
I just got a text message from Mike that Blanche is adjusting well but is still wary of entering a building. She’s getting along well with her new siblings – it was almost like she recognized that they looked like her. Could that really be possible?
Thanks for all your very kind comments – as animal lovers, you would likely have done the same thing!
It is a very beautiful fall day here and the leaves are falling like snow!
Here are the Dirty Dozen for today:
Hazel says “ play with me”!
