Thursday 16 February 2012: Dry
This fluffed up mourning dove sat quietly on the birdbath this morning....probably wondering when I'm going to add some water to it!
A strange story from last night....
Around 5 p.m., I was vacuuming my living room when I noticed someone walking up our sidewalk to our door. He had no shirt on, which is pretty odd considering it is February! He was young, maybe 18 or so.
He rang the doorbell, and I opened the door just a crack. My dog was going nuts, barking and trying to get to the door. When I peeked out of the door, I noticed this kid had no clothes on with the exception of underwear. No socks, shoes, pants or shirt.
He told me that he was just beat up (I didn't see any signs of that) and he wanted to know if I could drive him to the next town. I told him that I would not do that, but I could call the cops for him. He said, "No, nevermind" and ran off down the road.
It was a bit scary....my husband wasn't home from work yet, and it was just Jack and I in the house. Thankfully my dog is big and loud and is probably a good deterent. I called the police immediately to let them know, but I have no idea if they found him or not.
Who knows...a drug deal gone bad? A young guy chased out of the house by an angry husband? Either way, it has made me pretty unsettled. I shouldn't have even answered the door, but I guess the mom in me worried that something terrible happened.
