A muddy good deed for the day…

I had to go to town to pick up a package. I did not want to go to town, because it rained from Saturday to yesterday afternoon and the roads were going to be a sea of mud. But this is Friday and it had to be done today. So.


Still, I rode from the county road to the town without incident, got my package, came back, found a better route home with less mud … and what to my wondering eyes should appear upon it but a van full of kids stuck in sand.

Not mud. Sand. She took that route to avoid the mud, because van.

Need I add I’m not the only person who moved out here on a shoestring. It’s pure unbelievable luck that I’ve had access to a Jeep all these years so I’m not going to get all superior on this lady. Who was ever so stuck in quite literally the middle of nowhere…

…until I happened along. 🙂

So I guess I’m glad I made the trip even though I didn’t want to. But just to make sure I didn’t get a swelled head over it, while I was gone Murphy whispered a secret into Tobie’s ear…

“See that cushion? Uncle Joel really hates that cushion. He won’t be mad at all if you shred it.”

That’s the second Official TUAK Cushion Tobie has shredded. I can’t wait till he outgrows puppyhood…

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Valid point. Probably. From his point of view.

    Doesn’t mean I appreciate my bruised tailbone…

    You’re a good man, Charlie Brown!
    Hmmm- seems like I say that a lot, here…

    And now you understand why you were placed in the middle of the desert by the powers that operate the universe. One of those kids, saved by the hero on the Yellow Steed from long and horrible dehydration, will probably grow up to be the salvation of Western Civiilization…

    Four pack of cushions on the way via Overstock. Will forward info when I get it.

To the stake with the heretic!
