While You Were Away

In a scene that may yet play out on the “Judge Judy” show, two neighbors were involved in a kerfuffle while walking their dogs.

“Bob M’s” female, Australian shepherd, allegedly jumped on the back of “Fred W’s” cocker spaniel, in an unprovoked attack.  Heated words were exchanged–the two dogs, and their respective owners, were separated.

Being a member of the “Neighborhood Retired Old Farts Dog Walker’s Club,” I know more than I can say, about behavior leading up to this event.

Disproving the “nothing ever happens here” skeptics, there was a recent car chase on the nearby county road, at speeds up to 90 mph.  It ended at the intersection of Wilson Rd. and the county road, when the speeding car met an immovable object.  Two victims, were air-evacuated by helicopter, due to serious injuries.  Details were forthcoming at this writing.

It hasn’t rained for six weeks.  The grass has turned brown, with just a little green in the damp spots.  I expected grass to be at least two-foot high on my return.

The weather has been the same every day–sixty at night, low eighties during the day.  Local meteorologists have put their forecasts on cruise control.  Perfect weather for yard sales.  There are plenty of them this Saturday morning.
