I always love it when Deputy McLovin comes home in the evening, walks into the kitchen while still in his uniform and tells me about his day. Last night was one of these evenings.
I knew that earlier he'd been called out to pick up some sheep that had gotten loose in a neighborhood, so I, of course, planned to make a timely and clever comment about Bo Peep. I made it and it was clever (thanks Melissa) , but not so much timely as I immediately became riveted in his story-telling. He started off by telling me how much I would have laughed if I'd been there.
Unbeknownst to him at the time, on the other side of the main road, obscured by urbanization was a golfer on a golf course.Can you guess where this is going?After feeling the sting on the back of his head (yes, for real!) he heard a voice far off in the distance... "Sorry!"
Well, he did finally succeed at getting the sheep into the trailer, but only after pulling on them with a dog pole until they choked out, then reviving them (for the sake of the neighbors) and pulling them a few more yards and repeating this process with the "dang - why can't they just come with me - sheep" several times.
Now, if you can't see the humor in that?...there's something wrong with you!
A few months ago I started reading Brandon Sanderson. FAN-TA-BU-LOUS!!!! Words cannot describe! So I requested the 3rd book in his MISTBORN series and asked if I could be the first to check it out. Voila! I got the email from the library today. Of course, like lightening, I drove down to get it. It couldn't be better timing because this week is Fall Break. No school for a few days and lots of reading time. Ahahahah! I'm bursting!!!
What exactly IS Facebook? I have an account now, because I figure if my parents have one, then it must be okay, but now I'm wondering what it's all about. How safe is it? Is it basically an email slash photo album slash chatroom? Sounds convenient. What's your take on it?
My goodly parents have been called to serve a mission in Montevideo, Uruguay. The amazing thing is that this is the exact location of my Papa's first mission as a 19-yr-old!! If you know anything about my parents (many of you have met my angel mother) then you know they are going to be fabulous with the help of Heavenly Father and be a blessing to the people of Montevideo.
I am an optimist. I try to find the positive and beauty in everyone and everything around me. My religion and my little boy with cancer are the filters through which I view life.
Perpective is everything.
