Last Friday, I was feeding Brownie, my neighbor’s dog. It was late in the day, after school and dance. I had already fed Brownie his two scoops of food and given him his pill-in-a-treat. He had finished eating, and I had already talked sweet “doggie talk” to him so he wouldn’t be so lonely for his people. Brownie has trouble with his back legs, so he lies down when he eats. Each time I took care of him, I would rotate the bowl to make it easier for him, and when he was finished I would brush him. I miss him.
Anyway, I was finishing up with Brownie when I heard the familiar sound of the UPS truck rounding the corner onto our street. Since Brownie lives quite a distance from our house, Mom and I raced down Brownie’s driveway so we could look down the street to see if the UPS truck would stop at our house (we knew that ARCs would arrive any day.)
The Brown Truck drove past our house and pulled into the circular driveway just past ours.
Mom joked that the Brown Truck would come back to our house after turning around in that cicular driveway.
She was right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Brown UPS Truck pulled up in front of our house and a man climbed out with a dolly and rolled three big boxes of Gracie Goodness to our front door… translated:
