Oh my goodness! What a surprise I got today! Hubby got up earlier than usual. I thought that odd. Even more odd was I realized he had left and not even said good-bye or where he was going! I thought perhaps he had decided to participate in the early voting taking place and wouldn't be gone long. I went on to work. When I returned home he was still gone! "Now that's really odd," I thought. I text him and got no response. I text my daughter thinking perhaps he said something to her. She says no I should try to call. I do. It goes straight to voice mail which I leave one. Now I'm really puzzled. Where is he?! He never goes anywhere and when he does he's not gone long. I go through a few possible scenarios as to the reason for him being MIA and decide to not worry. He's a big boy right?
I changed clothes, grabbed something to eat on the go and get out to the horses. I wanted to get my ride in before I was to keep Kennedy. I get done, go pickup Kennedy and realize I forgot to do the church's banking and put letters in the mail. No big deal right? I can go through the drive through for banking and pass a mailbox to drop off letters. I get to the bank and of course its Friday on a holiday weekend. Need I say more? When it gets to be my turn I pull up only to remember that the electronics for the window on the drivers side of my truck quit working two days ago. How convenient! Obviously my memory isn't working very well as I drive around the bank through their parking lot to the mail drop off and try again to "open my window". UGH!!! I gave up and went home! There's always tomorrow right? At least that is what I thought.
I love my old truck. We ordered it new in 1998. A Dodge Ram 2500, 5 speed, club cab, short wheel base, 2-wheel drive, candy apple red. Its been a great truck but things are starting to not work...like the window....and the electric locks on the passenger side quit a long time ago. Sometimes the electronics on the drivers seat work and sometimes not. Sometimes the fan on the A/C works and sometimes it doesn't but I still love to drive it. It's the first vehicle I have ever owned that I've not grown tired of. I told my husband I was going to drive it until the wheels feel off...and I had decided they just might!
Kennedy and I get to the house and Doyle is STILL not home. WHERE IS HE???!!! I'm thinking loudly in my head and mumble under my breath. Kennedy starts asking "Where's Granddad?" I tell her "I don't know!" I had overheard him talking to a buddy of his the other day. Maybe...just maybe he went to play golf. So I decided again to "not worry" and if I don't here from him or see him by 5 then I'll decide a plan of action. About 3:30 or 4 I hear him come in the house. Kennedy runs to meet him. I hear him say "go tell Savtah to come see what I got.
When I come in the living room he hands me a key. Outside is this!
